And I aim to maintain an efficient operation that keeps clients coming back for more. I’m proud to have been entrusted with this directorship; my remit is to promote the company's continued success and growth and act as a true ambassador for the business."
Kristian Cutting – Joint Managing Director, said, "These strategic appointments speak directly to our commitment to promoting outstanding leadership.
As we face global economic and social challenges, clear direction and vision are critical. The enhancement of our leadership team is solely possible thanks to our continued growth and the selection, by so many, of GVAV as the partner of choice for AV solutions and services. These appointments will help deliver the well-managed quality, value and service that reward that choice.
