Reaffirming its commitment to supplying European and Middle East customers with its projector and flat-panel mounts, stands and carts, Premier Mounts (www.mounts.com) has promoted Phil Davenport to European general manager. A five-year veteran at Premier Mounts, Davenport will assume responsibility for sales efforts in Europe and the Middle East.
Phil Davenport, Premier Mounts
Based out of Premier Mounts’ European headquarters in Coventry, England, Davenport will focus his efforts on establishing Premier Mounts in the European AV market.
“At Premier Mounts, the importance of developing innovative solutions is second only to creating positive customer experiences worldwide,” said Lee Dodson, president at Premier Mounts. “Phil has a deep understanding of the industry and the European markets which, combined with his expertise, make him a powerful asset to Premier Mounts and its customers.”
Davenport noted that the spectrum of AV mounting applications in Europe and the Middle East is very broad and requires a manufacturer to frequently look at custom designs instead of “off-the-shelf” products to make sure that the mounting product fits the customer’s needs precisely. This applies to the emerging hospitality and education markets, especially in the Middle East.
“In the Middle East and Dubai in particular, there is a tremendous need for developing custom or modified off-the-shelf mounts that can fit into existing and new facilities,” Davenport said. “With Premier Mounts’ custom division’s depth of expertise in custom design and manufacturing, I am confident that we will be able to not only meet customer expectations, but exceed them as well, creating a positive customer experience.”
Prior to the promotion, Davenport served as European sales manager and was responsible for developing and supporting the majority of the company’s largest customers in the region.
