Electrosonic promotes Anttila24 March 2011
Electrosonic has announced that Ilari Anttila has been named service director, EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa). Formerly head of the Nordic region managing Electrosonic’s operations in Finland and Sweden, Anttila will now be based in London.
In 2010, Electrosonic’s audiovisual service business in the UK expanded considerably with the acquisition of DRV, a leading corporate AV systems and service company. Anttila’s appointment furthers Electrosonic’s commitment to provide the highest level of service to its clients. Besides managing and expanding business in the UK, Anttila is tasked with promoting Electrosonic’s service business throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
“Historically, this business has focused on the London financial sector, but opportunities exist further afield, and I have been charged with developing new business throughout the region,” said Anttila of his new role. “I hope to put to work my 20 years-plus of experience in successfully managing teams and organisations of all types and sizes as we build Electrosonic across the EMEA regions.”
A native of Finland with a Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering, Telecommunications, ICT and Management from the Helsinki University of Technology, Anttila joined Electrosonic three years ago and has been a member of the Executive Management Board since that time.
