In a move aimed at accelerating Dimension Data’s five-year strategy to double its revenues, the Group today announced the appointment of Grant Bodley as CEO Middle East & Africa (MEA). Derek Wilcocks, current CEO of Dimension Data MEA, and Sean Joubert, current Managing Director of Dimension Data MEA will both be taking up executive positions within the global group. All appointments are effective 1 October 2015.
Bodley (40) joined Dimension Data in 2000. Prior to being appointed Sales Director of Dimension Data MEA in 2012 – the role he currently holds - he headed up Dimension Data MEA’s IT Outsourcing business.
Brett Dawson, Dimension Data’s Group CEO said, ““Grant has a strong business background, as well as an IT focus, which means he’s able to bridge the gap between IT and business for our clients. This, coupled with an excellent track record spanning 15 years with Dimension Data, positions him well to successfully lead the Dimension Data MEA business.
