InfoComm International opened its European Headquarters in the United Kingdom.
Terry Friesenborg, InfoComm senior vice president, International development says, "With more than 17 percent of InfoComm members located outside of North America and the largest segment of that group working in Europe, establishing an office in the UK that can provide additional services and support to the greater-European AV community is essential."
InfoComm has hired additional staff to meet the growing needs of the European membership. Christopher Lavelle, CTS, has been named UK regional manager. Lavelle studied sound engineering, computer networking, and web development in South Africa. He most recently worked for PSAV, serving as director of event technology for the Maybourne Hotel Group.
Sarah Carless has been named European program coordinator. She comes from an extensive computer data networking background, working with leading manufacturers such as 3Com and Siemens Network Systems Ltd. Caress spent the past five years working for an interactive telephony company as a production executive, developing and implementing interactive telephony products.
In addition, Godwin Demicoli, CTS has been promoted to regional director, Europe. Demicoli has been a European Representative with InfoComm since 2004.
