A wider external team is also part of the new structure, employing Mandeep Jabble and Joe Finn who both report into Head of Sales, Tim Fox.
Jamie Brothwell said: “having responsibility for restructuring and rebuilding the UK Exertis Pro AV business is the best project I’ve ever been a part of. Building and establishing a new management team, setting the strategy for growth, working with our geographical siblings around the world, and bringing to life and telling the story of Exertis Pro AV has been a joy to be part of. Working at Exertis gives the freedom and entrepreneurial spirit that leads to fantastic innovation and growth. I’m incredibly proud of our business, our culture and our people, and I’m really excited to see where we go from here.”
The Exertis Pro AV division offers a whole suite of products to support the movement towards collaborative working, and the function operates across 20 countries, with more than 500 dedicated Exertis Pro AV employees worldwide. The aim of bolstering the talent in the UK division is to give a greater customer and vendor experience, providing the support and expertise to upskill customers’ workforces, and offering new and exciting ways to increase customers’ technology offerings – therefore differentiating them from their own competitors.
Al Coyne, Commercial Director, said: “I am relishing the new role as it gives me another cap to wear in the world of Exertis Pro AV – there are several similarities in this market as there are within the OA print market.”
Tim Fox, Head of Sales, said: “building a sales operation that offers customers excellent service and genuine choice is a challenge that I am really enjoying. Exertis Pro AV has a lot of momentum now, exciting times are ahead!”
