Evolve Media announces new sales development30 March 2011
The UK-based media server manufacturer has appointed San Diego-based International Sales to represent export territories such as Eastern Europe, the Arabian Gulf States, Latin America, the Far East and Australia/New Zealand.
The relationship between the two companies started late in 2010 with the agreement to include Evolve Media on the Home Theatre Europe stand at ISE 2011, joining an established team of brands also represented by International Sales. During the event, the brand received considerable interest from previously unchartered territories – hence the decision to actively grow the brand in these areas.
Charlie Mertz (pictured), commercial director at Evolve Media, commented: “I’m so pleased with this announcement; it shows real commitment from ourselves and Joe Manning’s team at International Sales to a portfolio of products that fit the custom and consumer markets around the world. Having Joe and the team on board allows us to tap into the incredible industry experience they have and we’re overjoyed at the prospect of the Evolve brand going truly worldwide.
“Since our first meetings at CES this year, we have co-operated on projects with great results, so call it fate, natural progression, or just good business, having Joe (Manning) and the International Sales team with us will bear fruit for both companies now and in the future.”
International Sales offers full service manufacturers’ representation with staff fluent in English, Russian, Portuguese and Spanish. The company represents some of the leading American and European home theatre equipment manufacturers, including ADA, Avielo by projectiondesign, CHIEF, RBH Speakers, Screen Innovations and Tributaries Cables among others.
Joe Manning, MD of International Sales, reflected: “Evolve Media is the complete solution in this growing market segment. The design, features and build quality of Evolve Media products are a sophisticated package that will enhance any home theatre or whole home audio/video system. Charlie Mertz, is both a well-respected and innovative individual. We look forward to working with Charlie (Mertz) and the Evolve crew to establish their brand worldwide.”
