Erol will be responsible for expanding CONTEXT’s market share and managing business development, distribution, service and sales in the region.
Having previously worked with the largest IT distributor in Turkey, Index Computer Systems, Erol has considerable technical, sales and general management experience across the IT, consumer electronics & Telecommunications industries.
“I am very enthusiastic about the opportunity to expand CONTEXT’s presence in Turkey”, commented Erol Kuseyri. “ The CONTEXT proposition of delivering real-time channel data across technology sales and pricing resonates strongly in this region as we see increasing investment in diverse sectors of technology.”
Recent figures based on preliminary analysis of the Turkish PC market showed a slow start to the year with greater expectations for the second half. Top ten vendor sales of PCs accounted for 41% of the Turkish market during the first quarter of the year with a natural slowdown in the second quarter at a -17.6% decline.
“We typically see a slowdown in sales during the period of Ramadan which affects sales for consumers, enterprise and government, however we expect sales to pick up again during the back to school period in September”, added Kuseyri.
“It is with pleasure that we welcome Erol Kuseyri to our team”, commented Howard Davies, CEO & co-founder at CONTEXT. “Turkey is already one of the fastest expanding technology markets in the world and a strategically important market for us. We see a lot of potential in expanding CONTEXT’s footprint to regions like Turkey and are confident that Erol Kuseyri’s experience and strong industry knowledge will support us on our path of considerable growth in this region.
