ICT solutions provider Datatec has made three senior appointments to its financial services arm, naming Paul Christensen director of North America, Mark Hegarty director of Australia and New Zealand, and Paul Tweehuysen commercial director in the UK.

Christensen and Hegarty will be charged with leading business strategy and operations. They will also be responsible for delivering financial solutions and products portfolio for the customers, partners, and manufacturers of Datatec's subsidiaries Logicalis and Westcon-Comstor in their respective jurisdictions.

Christensen has previously worked for CIT and EMC Global Financial Services, and has over 25 years’ experience in financial services.

Hegarty has also spent over 25 years in financial services, and before Datatec held roles at CNH Industrial Capital and Future Finance Corporation.

Tweehuysen will focus on global operations and strategy as part of the UK team, and provide support to regional directors and their teams to enable transactions.

Tweehuysen joined Datatec from Cisco Capital, where he served as global engagement manager for the EMEA region. Prior to Cisco, Tweehuysen was capital and leasing manager at Stanley Security Solutions.

All three directors will report to Christian Roelofs, managing director at Datactec Financial services.

Roelofs said: “Paul Christensen, Mark Hegarty, and Paul Tweehuysen bring a great deal of expertise and creativity to Datatec Financial Services and are ideally suited to support the business in the next phase of its development.”

Jens Montanana, chief executive officer at Datatec Group said: “All three appointments make valuable additions to the team as the business continues to develop its offering across North America, UK, Australia and New Zealand.”
