Kinly – a leading AV systems integrator and remote collaboration service provider– is delighted to announce the promotion of AV heavyweight Stuart Davidson to the role of Operations Director, UK & Ireland.
In his new role, Davidson will be overseeing consultancy & design, projects, warehouse & logistics, hire & judicial, and health & safety. The promotion will also give him the opportunity to develop products, solutions, and processes in line with what the market and the technology needs to deliver efficiently at scale and globally.
Having joined the AV industry in 1996, Davidson has worked for organisations big and small including a period during which he owned and ran his own AV services business. As a result, he has built a wealth of experience across all commercial, technical and operational business functions, and has served myriad verticals.
Davidson joined Kinly in 2016 as service delivery director for global services, and soon after, became technical services director, the title which he retained before taking on his latest role. Indeed, as operations director, he continues with his technical responsibilities.
Davidson explains: “My previous position is folded into the new one. That means I now have responsibility for the design side of the business as well as the operations project delivery side. For me, that’s an important move because we’re seeing the industry continuously moving and changing, with technology being a key driver. So, it makes sense that the operational and technical sides come under one umbrella.”
