Haffar quits after 33 years in charge of Computex

Computex CEO and co-founder Sam Haffar has announced he is stepping down from his role after 33 years.

The move comes just five weeks after the Houston-based business was acquired by American Virtual Cloud Technologies (AVCT) and will also see Haffar resign from the company’s board of directors.

Haffar co-founded Computex alongside his brother back in 1987, building the firm up in the US. The business developed from a small system builder to a national name, developing its own recurring revenue cloud services and security and disaster recovery products.

Haffa said it had been a “great ride” and he was proud of what he had built at Computex. But it was time to take some time off and then focus on the next chapter of his life.

Computex has promoted Faisal Bhutto and Worth Davis to presidential roles. Prior to it being acquired by Computex in 2014, Bhutto held the roles of partner and COO of ENET solutions. He now steps up from the position of vice-president to president of Cloud and Cybersecurity, where he will also continue to lead the firm’s Managed Services and Cybersecurity divisions.

Worth Davis now takes the role of President of Computex’ Solutions Provider business unit. Prior to joining Computex eight years ago, the CIO veteran was previously a director at $77 billion energy giant Engie.

Haffar said: “I have 100 percent confidence in the future of Computex with Faisal and Worth stepping up to top leadership positions. They are great leaders with many, many great accomplishments. I am very confident in their ability.
