Rorke Global Solutions will craft solutions from a combination of catalog systems developed internally and off-the-shelf technologies from a wide range of innovative, world-class manufacturers. The services available from Rorke Global Solutions align with each stage of the customer’s product lifecycle from development to launch to sustained support and continue all the way through end of life and asset recovery.

“As more and more aspects of the business and product life cycle call for increased technology integration that is seamlessly bundled with complementary services, our customers are seeking a one-stop shop that can design and deliver solutions for their unique needs,” said Kostalnick. “Rorke Global Solutions is set up to be the market’s go-to provider for technology solutions, delivering the right blend of resources for each customer’s individual requirements, which will result in unprecedented competitive advantage.”

To assist customers in integrating storage, open compute platforms, information technology (IT) infrastructure, digital security and surveillance, and machine-to-machine (M2M) technologies, Rorke Global Solutions includes a newly formed solutions-focused sales and consulting group, to be led by Avnet veteran Scott MacDonald. MacDonald, who has served as an Avnet area vice president for eight years, will now serve as vice president of sales and market solutions for the new group and report to John Salemme, vice president of sales in the Americas for Avnet Embedded.
