DCG assembles first working committee
Six-man team set to discuss market issues and provide support to members
The Dubai Computer Group (DCG) has confirmed the formation of a new working committee following the conclusion of its recent annual general meeting.
The committee is due to gather for its first official meeting tonight.
AOC Middle East sales chief and former DCG general secretary, Suchit Kumar, has been appointed head of the committee, which presently consists of five other members.
They are: Bhavesh Trivedi from Croma Trading, Hiren Vadodaria of Compunics Technologies, Ashish Daftary at Keydata, Idrish Chaatariya from CompuAge and Sha Mohamed, the managing director of Sha Computers.
Committee members are expected to play a key role in the operational side of the DCG and act as the first point of contact for resellers that require support or advice. Matters will then be referred to the DCG's management board if necessary.
"The committee will be active at grassroots level so they will be in direct co-ordination with most of the members," explained DCG president Shailendra Rughwani. "What we will eventually be doing is assigning roles for things like financial issues or grievance issues and then form sub-committees from those."
Rughwani insists there is scope to increase the size of the committee as the DCG looks to establish itself in the market.
"We don't mind more people joining - we probably want to have 10 or 12 people in total, who in future can take over from the present managing board. They will be able to get trained and used to the way things work with a view to eventually taking over," he said.
