AUTHOR: Inavate

Christie appointed Maverick Presentation Products, as a UK distributor, on June 3, 2008 in a bid to push into the corporate IT market. Maverick, part of the Tech Data Group, will offer UK resellers the full range of Christie’s LCD and 1-chip DLP projection systems.

The distribution agreement is claimed to offer more resellers, active in the audiovisual market, access to Christie’s leading product lines. In addition, Maverick said it can offer Christie partners pre- and post sales support.

Dale Miller, vice president EMEA for Christie said Maverick was “incredibly well-resourced and experienced”.

“This agreement will increase Christie’s presence in the market and make our solutions more accessible to partners throughout the UK. We’re confident that this will be a positive move for us and for our partners,” he added.

Jon Sidwick, director of Maverick said the agreement was “a significant breakthrough”.

He concluded: “By adding the Christie’s LCD and DLP offerings to our growing portfolio, we are extending the choice we offer to resellers addressing the professional sector.”
