A Marketing and Management graduate of Newcastle University, Turney's role at POLAR will be to use his dynamism and expertise to grow sales and revenues in the firm's Integrated Solutions division.
POLAR director Stuart Leader, who heads up the Integrated Solutions division, is pleased to welcome Turney to the team: "Will has a comprehensive understanding of AV technologies and their application, as well as a thorough knowledge of the UK marketplace. He was a standout performer in his previous role, recognised with numerous sales awards and we're really pleased to have recruited a team member with the skills and personality that will help us continue to grow and move forward," he said.
Turney is looking forward to the challenge: "My main focus at POLAR will be to grow sales and revenues by maximising every opportunity. Whilst I am confident that my career to date has equipped me with a strong set of skills and a high level of technical understanding, I remain aware that success depends on continued learning in an industry that never stands still," he stated. "POLAR is held in high regard and I'm very much looking forward to bringing my energy to this exciting new challenge."
