— Rivers Will Oversee Sales Operations at D&H Canada, Forging Major Manufacturer Relationships While GM Greg Tobin Continues in a Strategic Advising Role  —

BRAMPTON, ONT - December 21, 2018 - D&H Distributing announces it has promoted Roy Rivers to the position of vice president of sales, D&H Canada, a role in which he will oversee all customer relations. With Rivers as the executive lead for all sales, D&H Canada's long-time General Manager Greg Tobin will move into an advising position focused on longer term strategic initiatives for the organization. Rivers compliments the D&H Distributing executive team of Jennifer Walcott, vice president of marketing, and Tim Billing, senior vice president of vendor management and purchasing. Both Billing and Walcott have had long-established careers in the Canadian marketplace including high level positions with major channel and distribution companies.

Seasoned industry veteran Rivers joined D&H Canada in 2017 as director of sales, advanced solutions, managing D&H's major vendor relationships in addition to VAR sales. Rivers spearheaded D&H's addition of HPE's and Aruba's solutions, the HPE HERO (Heighten and Elevate Revenue Opportunity) program, Cisco's Meraki line of wireless solutions, and the launch of the accompanying Driven for Cisco Meraki reseller program. These major manufacturer support initiatives have generated considerable SMB business opportunities through D&H's solution provider channel, contributing to D&H Canada's steady double digit growth. Rivers has also driven more than 35% growth in the VAR sales segment in the past year with a focus on the SMB space in Canada.

"D&H Canada is proud to extend its commitment to the reseller community into a new era of profitability," said Rivers. "We've made excellent headway in the marketplace, introducing powerful new product assortments and compelling support initiatives that have driven business for both our customers and vendor partners. In the process, we've grown to be one of the most effective and relied-upon distributors in the country, spreading our value proposition throughout the provinces."

"I'm excited to focus my expertise more expressly on strategic efforts for D&H as it evolves, working to boost sales for our customers," said Greg Tobin. "We're confident that Roy will continue to establish crucial new relationships for D&H, increasing the company's prominence in the market and enhancing its ability to deliver a competitive edge to its VARs. As D&H continues into its second century, its Canadian executive team will consistently play a more intrinsic role in the company's ongoing strategic trajectory."
