Midwich, the multi-award winning, specialist audio visual (“AV”) distributor to the trade market with operations across the UK and Ireland, Continental Europe and Asia-Pacific, is pleased to announce the appointment of Jonny Francis (pictured left) to Sales and Marketing Director and Steve Fay (pictured right) to External Sales Director, as of January 2019. These announcements follow the news that as of May 31st, long serving Sales Director, Iain Campbell (pictured middle) is stepping down in order to pursue new ventures outside the industry.

Jonny Francis was promoted to Sales and Marketing Director from his previous role as Head of Sales and Steve Fay was promoted to External Sales Director from his previous role as External Strategic Customer Development. Both have been with Midwich for combined service in excess of 20 years and are well positioned to support the Company in its future growth.       

Iain Campbell has been with Midwich since 2006 and has played an invaluable role in the strategic growth of the Midwich Group during his 13 years.      

Iain Campbell, Sales Director, commented:

“Since entering the industry in 1995 and joining Midwich in 2006 following the acquisition of True Colours, I have been lucky to meet some fantastic people on the way.

Midwich really is all about the customers and employees and I am proud to have worked alongside the best in the business. The development of Midwich into a global distributor has been truly amazing and I am happy to have played my small part in helping it be successful.”

Mark Lowe, Midwich Managing Director, commented:

“Since joining the business in 2006, Iain has played a significant role in the management team and been instrumental in the adoption of technical AV within our distribution portfolio. I’d like to wish Iain all the best with his new venture and at the same time, wish Jonny and Steve continued success at Midwich in their new roles.”

Jonny Francis, Sales and Marketing Director and Steve Fay, External Sales Director commented:

“We are both excited by the new challenges that our new roles will present us. We’re most excited about the opportunity to continue supporting the ongoing development of the great people at Midwich as well as reinforcing the relationships with our vendors and customers.   

“Midwich’s long-standing relationships set us apart from the competition and we’re excited to continue growing these and supporting Midwich’s future growth.”
