Tech Data's exit from the regional market will lead to some of its 86 staff being axed, its Middle East boss has admitted.
The distributor has transferred the bulk of its operations to rival Aptec, which has said it will take on around 60 Tech Data staff.
While Tech Data will offer some of the remaining staff jobs in its operations in Europe and elsewhere, others will be made redundant, Hanspeter Eiselt, managing director of Tech Data Middle East told

Eiselt said any staff being made redundant would be offered support through an outplacement service.For all the latest tech news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
