Executive Leadership Changes Position CDW for Continued Success

CDW has announced several executive leadership changes, outlined below, which position the company for continued success.

  • Following an incredibly successful career at CDW, Jill Billhorn, SVP Corporate Sales, has announced she will be retiring from the organization at the end of the year. CDW celebrates Jill’s remarkable contributions and wishes her all the best in retirement.
  • Aletha Noonan will be stepping into a new role leading commercial sales, inclusive of corporate and small business. During Aletha’s tenure at CDW, she has successfully taken on both customer and partner-facing leadership roles, most recently leading CDW’s Product and Partner Management (PPM) organization.
  • Mark Chong will lead CDW’s Product and Partner Management (PPM) team. Prior to his current role leading the Sirius Integration Management Office, Mark led marketing and strategy for CDW. In this role, he partnered closely with PPM in building CDW’s partner marketing plans and contributed significantly to the company’s series of acquisitions.
  • Liz Connelly will be taking on additional responsibility for CDW’s Corporate Verticals team while continuing to lead CDW’s healthcare business. CDW’s vertical expertise across healthcare, financial services,
    and nonprofits helps drive relevance and impact for customers. Bringing these teams together under Liz will support continued focus and capability building around CDW’s vertical strategy moving forward.

All of the changes listed above will go into effect on January 1, 2024.

To accelerate growth and achieve scale, CDW will be creating a dedicated business unit for Digital Velocity, separate from Integrated Tech. Evolving this structure gives both practices the ability to fine-tune their processes and strategies, capitalize on market trends, and invest in areas of highest impact.

  • Andy Eccles will lead CDW’s new Digital Velocity business, which will continue to partner closely with the company’s Integrated Tech and Sales teams to deliver full-outcome, full-stack, full-lifecycle solutions to CDW customers.
  • Andrew Cadwell plans to retire in 2024 after playing an instrumental role in forming and accelerating CDW’s Digital Velocity function. The organization appreciates Andrew’s leadership and dedication and wishes him continued success. 
  • Conor Waddell will lead CDW’s Integrated Tech team inclusive of Digital Infrastructure, Managed Services, and Configuration Services. Waddell will be focused on the next phase of growth within each practice area as CDW continues to lead in the markets it serves.
