proAV opens office in Germany
UK systems integrator proAV has opened an office in Frankfurt, Germany amidst a growing sales and support service in the country, notably in corporate, retail, manufacturing and automotive sectors.
Having a presence in Germany will enable proAV to forge new and strengthen existing relationships with key consultants.
Mark Hazell, sales director at proAV, points to the move being a natural response to a call for professional, integrated AV services from the region.
"proAV already enjoys strong supply chain partner relationships throughout EMEA," remarks Hazell. "Our decision to formalise a homogenous presence in Germany will enable us to further enhance our ability to serve clients seeking effective collaboration, high-end digital signage and distributed network solutions.
"Moreover, in addition to representing a strategic move for our sales operation, this is an exciting opportunity that will see proAV’s installation and support teams based locally and the provision of an elevated support service via our pioneering VNOC at our UK HQ."
The Frankfurt office will be led by country manager – Germany, Rosario Marseglia, who brings 10 years experience as sales Mmnager for a large AV distributor and a 13-year tenure as country manager at Crestron.
proAV now has 325 employees and 80 per cent of staff represent the technical engineering and support teams.
The German office augments proAV’s global operations that include a national network of offices in the UK and an international office in Shanghai, China.
