Neckarsulm, 23 March 2021 – Armando Seixas will be the new managing director of IT e-commerce provider Bechtle direct Switzerland effective on 1 April 2021. He has previously held the same position at Bechtle direct Portugal, which he has developed since its inception in 2009 and successfully embedded in the SME and public-sector market. In Switzerland, the 53-year-old succeeds Mario Düll, Executive Vice President, IT E-Commerce DACH at Bechtle, who has been leading the company since 2015.
Bechtle took its pick from within its own ranks to fill the newly vacant position of managing director of IT e-commerce subsidiary Bechtle direct Switzerland. After 12 years of calling the shots at Bechtle direct Portugal, Armando Seixas is set to take the helm of the Swiss B2B IT retailer with offices in Dübendorf and Morges. Before he joined the Bechtle Group, the Portugal native who is fluent in German held various leading roles in the textiles industry and worked for the Portuguese branch of the SSI Schäfer Group. Armando Seixas will continue to steer Bechtle direct Portugal as its managing director until the end of 2021, while moving his primary residence.
“I am glad that we are able to hand the reins of Bechtle direct Switzerland to Armando Seixas. A long-time member of the Bechtle family, he understands the ins and outs of our business and he has what it takes to continue our success story with our team in Switzerland,” says Mario Düll, Executive Vice President, IT E-commerce DACH, Bechtle AG.
“I am excited for this fantastic opportunity to take on a new challenge under the Bechtle umbrella. I appreciate the confidence shown in me and I am looking forward to contributing my management experience in a new environment,” says Armando Seixas.
