August 10, 2010 – Value added distributor Z-Three has appointed Lara McIvor as Sales Manager for the UK & Ireland. She will set and drive Z-Three’s sales strategy in the region across multiple channels, including carriers, retailers and resellers, as well as public and private enterprises.
Z-Three already serves a broad client base, in more than 50 countries, mainly in mainland Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the emerging markets. This appointment will allow the company to serve customers in the UK and Ireland with a responsive, dedicated resource.
Lara brings years of success in working with companies in a business to business, problem solving capacity, developing both private and public sector accounts, which fits well with Z-Three’s position in the UK market.
Philipp Gutzwiller, director, Z-Three, said:
“Our growing range of accessories is designed to help people with smartphones solve business problems and become more efficient – such as ensuring security or using the phone in new ways. That’s a very different mindset to simply box shifting accessories and we work in close partnership with our customers, something Lara is very accomplished at achieving.”

“I see huge possibilities for Z-Three and I am delighted to join the team. Z-Three has a track record of success operating in other countries and I look forward to growing this in the UK and Irish markets.”
