Mark McHale, Vice President for the UK and Ireland region at Arrow ECS, has well over thirty years’ experience in the IT industry, including two years overseas working in Africa and North America. Mark’s long service with the company – he joined in 1986 – has given him remarkable insight into an industry that continues to evolve at an ever-accelerating pace.
An early apprenticeship in electrical & electronic engineering proved a springboard for a successful career in IT sales, which culminated in his joining the Arrow ECS board as UK Sales Director over ten years ago. His most recent role at Arrow ECS was Managing Director for the Data Centre Solutions division of Arrow ECS business in the UK and Ireland.
Mark excels at recognising a market need and identifying the appropriate solutions to fulfil it, a vital sales skill that he brings to his current role. He enables Arrow ECS, our vendors and our channel partners to collectively seize opportunities presented by game-changing markets and the technologies within them such as cloud, digital and IoT to develop mutually profitable relationships.
It’s a time of transition, and in steering the business forward through a radically changing commercial and technological landscape, Mark balances his strategic vision of what the future will look like with a pragmatic and structured approach to implementation.
Specialist areas include mergers and acquisitions; emerging markets and technology; sales management and leadership; vendor and channel relationship management.
