CHAUVET Professional has expanded its international training and support team with the appointments of Amy Kerr and Jeffrey Ong as Product Specialists.
Based in Manchester, Kerr will be responsible for the Europe, Middle East and Africa markets, while Ong, who works out of Singapore, will handle Asia.
“Everyone at our company, from our CEO Albert Chauvet on down, is committed to offering customers a complete package that includes not only quality products, but also the ability to support them with training and education,” said Stéphane Gressier, CHAUVET International Sales Director. “We want our customers to know as much as possible about our products, so they get the maximum benefit out of them. With Amy and Jeffrey, we have two people who possess a deep understanding of lighting and lighting products.”
Kerr, who has served on PLASA panels, and been a lighting designer for artists, such the English singer/songwriter DYLAN, was most recently a Field Sales Support specialist for Robe, a position she held for over eight years, and through which she ran training programs throughout the UK.
Ong, a graduate of Singapore Polytec, likewise brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to his new position, having served as the Product and Application Manager at Harman Professional Singapore for almost 16 years. Prior to holding that position, he was the Technical Supervisor at The Ministry of Sound Singapore.
Beyond their credentials, however, Kerr and Ong, follow a philosophy that impresses Gressier, as well as Goran Dončić, CHAUVET Senior Business Development Manager for the EMEA market, and Desmond Kwan, Business Development Manager for Asia.
“All of us are excited to welcome Amy and Jeffrey to our team,” said Gressier. “This isn’t just because of what they know, but also because of who they are, and the dedicated values they represent. We look forward to working with them.”
