TEMPE, Ariz., July 16, 2018 – Insight Enterprises (NASDAQ: NSIT), a Fortune 500 global systems integrator for organizations of all sizes, has announced that John Dathan has been named senior vice president and general manager of Insight Canada.

Dathan will report directly to Steve Dodenhoff, whose role as president of U.S. operations has expanded to oversight of all North American operations.

Prior to being named to his new role, Dathan served as vice president and general manager for Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Canada, responsible for leading HPE’s Canadian sales organization.

Dathan joined HP in 2014 to lead the networking business in Canada; his role evolved to several sales leadership positions prior to his final executive position there. Over a nine-year tenure at Juniper Networks starting in 2005, he grew the business by more than 500 percent.
