Savant Systems Europe, a division of RGB Communications, is formed to manage and develop business relationships in the UK and across Europe Following the great success of Savant Systems in the UK, RGB is delighted to announce that it has been awarded European distribution for Savant, the leading provider of smart home solutions. As a result, a new division of RGB has been created: Savant Systems Europe will build upon the momentum that RGB has already made with Savant in the UK and Ireland. The new division is to include a strong team with deep expertise in Savant's offerings and the AV industry as a whole. The team will be headed by Caroline Britt, the Managing Director at RGB. Caroline who has been central to RGB's growth over the last 14 years stated that, "this is a very exciting time for us and our new channel partners across Europe. We are relishing the opportunity and challenges facing us. Our new partners across Europe will now have access to what we believe is the future of control, whilst benefiting from the support and technical back-up of a very experienced team." Andy Atwell brings his 20 years of industry experience to become the new European Sales Director and adds that, "we want to offer the best possible sales and technical service to our dealers, with as strong a focus on business development with architects, contractors and M&E consultants." Additional services will include an extensive technical training program in the UK, along with state-of-the-art showroom facilities in London, with a move to offer similar facilities and services throughout mainland Europe in the near future. Caroline's team also includes Neil Howes, who with 10 years of home automation experience, will serve as UK Sales Director. "Partnering with RGB gives us the perfect platform to expand into Europe and truly offers the kind of sales, technical and training support that our European dealers require to grow," said J.C. Murphy, Executive VP, Global Sales at Savant Systems. "We are enthused by the possibilities that this partnership brings and believe that Savant Certified integrators and, ultimately, users across Europe will see enormous benefits." www.rgbcomms.co.uk www.savantsystems.com
