Amacom is a one-stop B2B shop that provides the missing link between electronics brands and (r)etailers. Their capabilities include inventory management, forecasting, drop shipping and a state-of-the-art proprietary Quecom platform. Under the new Managing Director’s leadership, Amacom is set to become a leading international brand.

About Amacom 

People rely heavily on electronics in their daily lives, from using coffee machines and headphones to tablets and TVs. It’s easy for consumers to find and buy these products online or in-store.

But (r)etailers face an ongoing challenge of forecasting which products will be sold when; managing their stock accordingly; and ensuring that expensive and fragile products reach their destinations quickly and safely. Managing all of these tasks in-house requires major and expensive physical operations that most (r)etailers are not equipped to handle. This is where Amacom steps in, and why it’s known as the ‘Amazing Company.’

Amacom is an inventory management and distribution partner for electronics brand suppliers and (r)etailers, who are their clients. They outsource all logistic and stock management aspects of running a commercial electronics business. This includes stocking inventory in one of their warehouses; picking, packing, and delivering orders on the same-day as needed; or tracking sales and forecasts through their Quecom platform. Amacom’s mission is to relieve its partners and clients of all these logistic challenges. This successful business model has resulted in years of high customer satisfaction and Amacom is now enjoying its largest growth phase.

While the core business as a logistics and inventory service provider remains key, Amacom is expanding to include more e-commerce and direct-to-consumer (DTC) activity. They are partnering with major electronics manufacturers like Samsung to help them set up their own online retail strategy for the European market. In addition, Amacom is acting as a DTC seller on platforms such as Bol.com.

Founded in 1999, Amacom’s roots are as a family business. Today they have around 120 employees throughout The Netherlands and Belgium, and joined DCC Technology in 2019. Even with its significant growth and partnership, Amacom maintains a friendly, service-minded family-oriented culture. Their ambitious and relatively young team work under the DCC umbrella and Exertis, its technology distribution group.

Vacancy: Managing Director 

The current Managing Director, a second-generation member of the founding family, is soon stepping into a different role. This opens up an exciting opportunity for a new Managing Director to enjoy a true general manager role with end-to-end responsibility for Amacom’s P&L, strategy, and team.

The Managing Director will initially develop a three-year strategic plan with a focus on the Benelux. This includes the commercial / go-to-market strategy as well as the ongoing development of the services portfolio. Potential further expansion into Europe through M&A will be an exciting next challenge. Developing its strategy will be a main priority for the Managing Director, who will also ensure the team remains enthusiastic and motivated to deliver on the strategic plan. Maintaining the supportive company culture and expanding its excellent in-house capabilities are the keys to success in this role.

The Managing Director will also take on a commercial role by maintaining or initiating solid relationships with primary suppliers and clients. They will also be responsible for general daily responsibilities, including ensuring compliance, increasing efficiency, providing day-to-day leadership, and sharing best practices and lessons learned across the Group. This role will work with the support of, and in cooperation with DCC Exertis: an international technology services group with significant expertise and capital for inorganic growth.

“With Amacon’s excellent in-house capabilities and the agile, driven culture, they are well-positioned for great success across the Benelux and even throughout Europe. This should happen under the leadership of a Managing Director who has commercial and entrepreneurial drive, and can manage the daily operations and nurture our growth culture.” – Clive Fitzharris, Managing Director of Exertis in EMEA and North America

The ideal candidate for this role is an experienced people manager who can keep a team engaged, happy, and at the top of their game. Experience with P&L responsibility is a must, as well as a considerable track record with commercial growth. Strong stakeholder management skills, to allow for excellent long-term relationships with partners, clients, and team members, is necessary. The Managing Director is highly-driven, thrives on diving into the deep end, and is comfortable with a degree of risk. Yet they are also willing to learn, are open to ideas from the team and the Group, and are comfortable working in an environment with potentially fast-changing priorities. The Managing Director does not need electronics  sector expertise, but retail and logistics experience is quite important to have.

The business includes a significant digital competence and this role requires digital literacy across e-commerce, digital marketing, data, and user experience. This is an excellent opportunity for a high-potential manager who is advancing their leadership career and ready to evolve with a successful family business in an established international group.
