Premier Mounts Promotes Phil Davenport

  • ANAHEIM, CA--Premier Mounts 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.
  • Based out of Premier Mounts’ European headquarters in Coventry, England, Davenport will focus his efforts on establishing Premier Mounts as the industry-leading mounting supplier in the European AV market through continued sales growth and delivering exceptional customer support before, during and after each sale.
  • “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,” said Davenport. “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.
