THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minn. -- Global electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, the industry leader in electronic component selection, availability and delivery, today announced the recent expansion of its European sales team. Five new hires in customer-facing roles will strengthen Digi-Key's position across all of Europe including Central and Southern Europe, the Nordic Region, the Baltics and the United Kingdom.
As the next phase of Digi-Key's international growth, the company is addressing increased demand from its growing customer base for local support within each region of Europe. The expanded sales team will allow the company to offer a more personal level of service to its EMEA customer base.
"Digi-Key has seen tremendous growth worldwide, up over 12 percent in Europe alone. This bucks the industry trend with traditional distributors reporting an increase of only one or two percent," said Chris Beeson, Vice President, Global Sales and Business Development at Digi-Key. "Our model is gaining traction among global buyers and, in response, we are aligning resources to address increasing demand for fast, efficient delivery of electronic components."
