GE IT Distribution Group is changing its name to GE Access, effective Monday. <P> The old moniker served as an umbrella name for the distributor's three divisions-Access Graphics Inc., Integration Alliance Corp. and Comstor.net-but Comstor was sold to Westcon Group last July, and IAC disintegrated after losing its distribution agreement with Hewlett-Packard Co., its primary vendor, in August. <P> With Access Graphics left as the sole survivor, a name change was in order, said Perry Monych, president and chief executive of GE Access, Boulder, Colo., who said the company has no plans to restructure or sell any parts of its business as a result of the switch. <P> "It didn't make any sense to have GE IT Distribution and Access Graphics as two separate names. It was getting confusing," said Monych. "We always had a long-term strategy to have one name, and this is the fulfillment of that long-term strategy," he said.
