ES Broadcast Goes From Strength To Strength

News Image
For ES Broadcast, 2015 was a year of change and development, for both the sales and hire divisions. There have been a number of additions to the ES Broadcast team and multiple developments we would love to announce to you all today.

Back at the end of 2013 we wrote and published an article telling you all about 'The Story of ES Broadcast', how we've grown from a one man band to a small business, what you could expect from us in 2014 and how we run the ins and outs of our business. Today, two years later, we write to you to review the years and tell you all about what 2016 means for us all at ES Broadcast.

We are both excited and proud to announce that we are now a fully authorised Sony Professional Solutions Specialist (SPSS) for Broadcast and professional products. Sony's newest fully authorised SPSS. The whole team are very excited to get behind this appointment and believe it is a huge string to add to our bow, which in collaboration with our existing manufacturer agreements means we can truly offer every aspect of a solution to the variety of client bases.

April will also see the end to Paul Beale's first working year with us. He joined us last year as a senior sales associate with over 15 years' experience in the industry and the aim of strengthening our sales force, broadening our post production client base and introducing us as a company to a much wider selection of manufacturers to boost our new equipment sales. We are extremely happy with the addition to our team and look forward to a long and prosperous working relationship with Paul.

We at ES Broadcast are also keen to tell you all about the numerous additional manufacturers we have added to our reseller ability just this past year. To name but a few which we have been appointed as approved resellers of; Panasonic, Sennheiser, PAG, Sony, Miller, Kramer, SAM, Miravid and Shure. Over the next couple of months we will be launching our brand new website and in house stock system. All of the new manufacturers and their equipment will be featured and listed on our website along with some new features such as case studies and the ability to send enquiries relating to specific items directly to the relevant sales person who is trained in this product line from the site. We anticipate that the new stock system will enable us to work much more efficiently and save us a lot of time throughout the sales process from advertisement through to invoice.

Another prospect we have been working on is our warehouse and offices. Simply, we have outgrown our building far quicker than we imagined we would and after expanding temporarily into a second building closer to London, it's time for us to begin our search for our next move.

Our final piece of news is an addition to the team at ES Broadcast Hire following our investment as the first rental company to acquire Fuji's 4K lenses. Charles Alexis joins us as European Sales Director, based in Munich – Germany, with years of experience in the industry.

Charles says: "I am extremely exited to have been appointed by ES Broadcast as Sales Director for the new office in a new area for the company. Becoming part of this dynamic team makes me motivated and impatient to face new challenges and grow by getting on with building new relationships with European clients and forging ever stronger ones with ES Existing cliental."

We are thrilled that he has decided to join us and are very excited at the prospect of what both he and a presence for us in Germany could do for ES Broadcast in 2016.

After sitting tight and putting in all of the hard work in 2015, 2016 is set to be a huge year for ES Broadcast, with the hire book filling fast and multiple projects in the diary fast approaching. We feel as though we have a very strong team going into 2016 and as we are currently looking for another two additions to our sales force, it can only get better. We look forward to seeing you all over the usual events throughout the year, we hope that when our brand new website is launched, you're as pleased with it as we are and most of all we wish you a very prosperous and successful new year. We look forward to working with you!
