Pinnacle appoints industry veteran

JSE listed ICT equipment distributor, Pinnacle Technology has announced the appointment of Henry Ferreira as head of distribution for the group, effective immediately.

Ferreira, who has filled the role of CEO at AxizWorkgroup for the past 18 months, will take on the added responsibility of managing distribution for the Pinnacle Group which includes both of its major ICT subsidiaries, Pinnacle Africa and AxizWorkgroup.

“While both companies operate very differently, in mostly varying markets and have very different cultures, here are areas where collaboration between the teams will strengthen the Group even further,” said Pinnacle CEO, Arnold Fourie.

Fourie noted that both entities will remain separate, and will continue to function separately in their specialist areas, but that great advantage could be gained from Ferreira overseeing both businesses.

Ferreira is an industry veteran, bringing over 30 years’ experience in the ICT industry to the table. He is well known in the South African market for his roles as country general manager for Hewlett Packard, South Africa and MD of Compaq Africa.

Prior to joining AxizWorkgroup as the CEO in February 2012, Ferreira held the position of country GM for Lenovo, Africa, where he was responsible for managing and growing the Lenovo business whilst maintaining and growing relationships with key enterprise customers and business partners.

He has also held executive positions with Microsoft Southern Africa, Nokia Networks, Unisys Africa and Hewlett Packard UK & Ireland.
