Bechtle has called its e-commerce segment its "clear engine of growth", with Q1 EBIT and revenues in that part of the business up a stellar 71 per cent and 54 per cent, respectively.
"Inmac Wstore has made its presence felt," he said.
"But still our organic growth stands at a very pleasing 12.4 per cent."
Becthle's other core segment, system house & managed services, also saw revenues grow by 18.8 per cent to €782.2m.
The big picture
As a whole, the company's Q1 EBIT rose by 27.1 per cent year on year to €450m, with revenues up 29.8 per cent to €1.24bn.
In December, the reseller pledged to almost triple its top line by 2030, as it sets a new €10bn revenue target.
In its first quarter of the new financial year, Olemotz said that investors should be happy that Bechtle's is making "impressive progress", considering "the tense macroeconomic situation".
"Against the background of the significantly worsened economic conditions, the development of Bechtle in the first quarter was really impressive. The fact that we are once again able to achieve double-digit growth at the beginning of the year is a testament to the strength of our business model. "
Bechtle's strongest subsidiaries
Olemotz highlighted the Benelux, UK and Italy as logging "particularly strong growth", but said "almost all countries posted double-digit growth".
He also reiterated his message that Bechtle needs to be seen as "an attractive and reliable employer" in order to reach its multibillion Euro target.
The firm onboarded 300 new staff in its Q1, and 1,707 people over the last year, making its total headcount 10,334.
"In times of a shortage of skilled workers, it is enormously important for a dynamically growing company like Bechtle to find and retain qualified employees in the future as well," Olemotz said.
