Gregory Koevort, WestconGroup Southern Africa's channel manager

In a bid to enrich and grow its Security Solutions division, WestconGroup Southern Africa has appointed Gregory Koevort as the channel manager responsible for the Citrix and Blue Coat product portfolios.

Koevort joins the company from Vox Telecom and has a thorough understanding of the IT security industry, with more than 13 years of security intensive experience. His expertise includes management and maintenance of client relationships, SLA management and staff management. All of which will form a critical link in helping the company develop and grow its Citrix and Blue Coat reseller base.

“Now more than ever is a time when organisations need to make IT security a top priority. Data and devices in organisations will continue to grow and it is critical to an organisation’s health that these assets are protected. I am pleased to welcome Greg to the team and look forward to seeing him working with our customers to help them deliver the right security solutions for their end user clients,” says Andrew Potgieter, business unit director at WestconGroup Southern Africa.
