Mustek formally announced its distributorship of the Acer range of products in SA at a gala event at the Scarlet Ribbon in Edenvale last Thursday night. Resellers and the media packed the function venue to the rafters to witness the announcement and enjoy the festivities.
Andrada Manu, the newly-appointed Acer Product Manager at Mustek, has an impressive track record with Mustek, having started in the sales division in 1998 and achieving rapid promotion to the position of Product Manager of a number of brands by 2008. Under her management, a number of Distributor of the Year awards have been bestowed on Mustek by vendors. “I am really excited by the opportunities presented by the Acer range”, she said, “Mustek received its first shipment of Acer notebooks in mid January 2011, and doors are already open for business!”
Andrada introduced the management of Acer SA, and comprehensive presentations by Graham Braum, Country Manager – Africa and Levant, and Damien Durrant, Channel Manager, left resellers in no doubt as to Acer’s business objectives and the opportunities presented by the Acer range. Acer made it clear that its primary focus is the Reseller Channel in SA.
“We were extremely satisfied with this event,” said Hein Engelbrecht, MD of Mustek “it was all good – good venue, good food, good entertainment, and a great product”.
