projectiondesign has recruited Matt Horwood as regional manager for the UK and Ireland. He will be based in the UK office and work with Iain Ambler to further develop its presence in the specialist market and add focus to the pro AV channel.
Horwood arrives at projectiondesign from Epson UK, where he had led a sales team covering specialist resellers and end users in the AV channel. Prior to that, he spent five years working in sales for pro AV reseller Reflex.
“I wanted to focus specifically on the AV channel and am very taken by the ‘value add’ and ‘high quality’ specialisms that are key components of projectiondesign’s established brand,” said Horwood. “The company has significant growth plans and a strong foundation on which to build them, so the challenge is extremely attractive.”
“We are delighted to welcome Matt to our team,” said Chris Axford, director of international sales & marketing at projectiondesign. “He has experience of every link in the AV chain – from distributor to reseller to end user – along with a proven track record of sales success and growing business.
“Part of our mission is to develop and manage an international network of sales specialists who can support all our partners within their region, and Matt’s appointment fits perfectly into that scenario. We are certain that this will be the start of a great new relationship that will benefit both of us and stand the test of time.”
Hitting the ground running, Horwood will be at the ITEC show (ExCeL, London) between 18 and 20 May to meet simulation and training partners.
