DVIGear, a leading supplier of Digital Connectivity Solutions for a wide range of professional display applications has appointed Lee Payne as its European business development manager.
Payne has nearly 20 years of experience in the high-tech industry and has a strong background in enterprise IT. He possesses a broad range of skills that spans the entire technology stack. Building on his robust technical foundations, Lee is analytical and inquisitive by nature and is always looking for innovative solutions to meet customer needs.
His experience in the ProAV industry has enabled him to integrate AV technologies with his core IT skill set, leading him to design one of the largest SDVoE deployments to date. Lee is based in Bergen, Norway.
“When I first became exposed to the Pro-AV industry, I was astonished that AV-over-IP technologies were still in their infancy and that the general understanding of the ‘IT’ components of such systems was somewhat lacking,” said Payne. “It is now apparent that these technologies have matured and the AV industry has realised that it is playing catch-up in the IT realm. I believe that with DisplayNet , DVIGear is successfully rising to the challenge of providing a powerful, IT-centric solution for its customers.”
Steven Barlow, president of DVIGear added: “We are excited to have Lee Payne join our team. His extensive IT background, industry experience and passion for technical excellence will enable him to uniquely meet our customers’ needs."
