CDW boss set to exit

CDW UK’s managing director Dan Laws is leaving the outfit after more than 21 years at the helm.

Making his announcement on  Twitter, Laws said that he was  transiting out of the MD role and it is not clear what he will be doing next.

Laws joined the business when it was known as Kelway, prior to its acquisition by CDW. When founder and CEO Phil Doye moved into an advisory role he took the job.

The company has been doing OK other than a bad last quarter which saw UK sales drop significantly.  Given the general mess in the world at the moment that should have been expected and not required Laws to fall on his sword.

CDW UK filed its most recent accounts in September, documenting the year ending 31 December 2019. Sales rose around 10 percent to £972.4 million.
