Max Chan, Vice President, Global Information Solutions, Avnet Technology Solutions Asia Pacific
There have been a number of exciting developments around the Internet of Things at Avnet lately. First, we kicked off the calendar year 2016 announcing a newly created role of vice president, Internet of Things in the person of Eric Williams, who will steer the company’s global IoT strategy. The previous year, Tim FitzGerald who had led Avnet’s Cloud Solutions business, was appointed vice president of digital transformation. These key appointments underscore our steadfast commitment to investing in the right resources to capitalise on the opportunities in the rapidly growing IoT market.
