TARRYTOWN, NY, Sep 13, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Westcon Group, Inc., the leading specialty distributor in data
center, networking, convergence, security and mobility, today
announced further expansion of its security business practice with
the appointment of Andrew Warren as Vice President, Westcon Security.
Warren will report directly to Lynn Smurthwaite-Murphy -- Westcon's

Westcon Security's U.S. activities, including driving its strategic
vision and managing partner and customer relationships.
Warren brings over 15 years of executive level channel experience to
his new role, specifically in security and distribution. Most
recently, he worked at Avnet, where he was responsible for growing
the distributor's domestic network security business. As a channel

solutions, technical expertise and sales support to increase
opportunities for resellers.

distribution-specific management savvy to this very important
position," commented Westcon's Senior Vice President, U.S. and

innovative cloud and applications-based technologies to gain
efficiencies, it is of paramount importance to provide assurance that
their data is secure. I look forward to working with the entire
