Polar appoints Andrew Plunkett
UK distributor Polar has announced Andrew Plunkett as its business development manager for public address/voice alarm with a focus on large-scale stadium installations.
Plunkett joins Polar from audio integrator TG Baker, where he worked for 15 years on design and distribution of public address, voice reinforcement and voice evacuation equipment.
He has experience in project management roles and has worked across industrial, leisure, education and large-scale stadium installations. As part of his role at Polar, he will liaise with new and existing customers and apply his system design expertise to help introduce the commercial ranges in Polar’s portfolio to organisations whose core business is not necessarily focused on audio installation.
Stuart Leader, director of Polar Integrated Solutions, described Plunkett as an “excellent asset to Polar. “We continue to grow our business and expand a formidable range of expertise across our team, enabling us to provide the very highest levels of support to our customers,” he said. “Andrew possesses a thorough understanding of the industry and brings vast experience of designing systems for every scale and complexity of application. He’s an outstanding professional and we’re delighted to have him as part of our team.”
Plunkett expressed his admiration for Polar and said: “It’s so encouraging to have such a rich core product-palette from which to support a full range of commercial audio solutions - from small-scale public address and background music, to large scale distributed systems. I’m particularly excited about introducing customers to the Polar range of products, including the powerful Vocia platform from Biamp, which delivers high-end, networked public address and voice alarm solutions with really integrator-friendly implementation.”
