Nearly New AV Appoints Business Manager as Go-to Guy for Used AV Equipment

Liam Norris brings energy, industry experience and connections to innovative online marketplace

Reading, UK, 3 January 2013 – Nearly New AV (NNAV), the professionals’ source for high-quality used AV equipment, has appointed Liam Norris as Business Manager. As of January 2013 he will take responsibility for business performance, strategy development, and buying and selling of the full NNAV portfolio.

Liam joins NNAV from PSCo Technical Distribution, and brings eight years of sales, marketing, business development and client networking experience in technology-focused industries such as AV, business communications and converged mobile voice and data solutions. His remit as NNAV Business Manager will include the support of trade partners to buy and sell all types of used AV equipment with a focus on the UK, Europe and US, as well as emerging markets, including United Arab Emirates (UAE), Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states, Brazil and India.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to take part in building a new business in such a fast-moving industry,” said Liam. “I’m confident NNAV will become the recognised online marketplace for outstanding service and best-value deals in high-quality second hand or ex-demo equipment. I’ve got plenty of get-up-and-go to help establish NNAV as a viable and compelling option for all types of businesses, anywhere in the world.”

NNAV is a dynamic start-up, established to provide the industry with a common place to buy and sell first rate AV kit at a fraction of the cost compared to brand new alternatives. Its motto “Deals this good don’t last long” is reflective of the current rate of growth and technological advancements in the AV industry. There is a vast amount of used stock in the marketplace that may be underutilised, superseded or out of date, and could be used more effectively elsewhere. On the vibrant NNAV web platform, customers can browse an array of fresh and current technologies, at heavily reduced prices, to fit any budget – ranging from flat screen displays (LCD, plasma and 3D), video wall displays and projectors to interactive and interface technologies, audio options, mounts and flight cases.

By buying ‘nearly new’ equipment, rental companies can supplement their fleets and reclaim residual value in capital purchases. Installation companies can purchase top of the range equipment at significantly reduced cost, allowing them to access market verticals previously out of reach. Service companies are able to purchase critical stock to support their contracts but at remarkably less overall expenditure.

With its global scope, partner network and support offering ideally suited to today’s business conditions, NNAV enables its partners to reduce waste by recycling technology, meet ever tighter budgetary constraints, and become more agile and flexible.
