Adding nearly 20 years of experience in sales and management of B2B AV solutions, Emiliano’s appointment is part of a renewed focus on the Italian market and a broader European commitment by Kramer to provide a more localized, customer-centric offering to its partners and clients.
Kramer, a leading provider of audiovisual experiences, is pleased to announce the appointment of Emiliano Faccioli, an established and experienced AV professional, as its new regional director for Italy.
Based at the company’s headquarters offices in Milan, Italy, his appointment is part of Kramer’s ambitious and reinvigorated regional sales and growth strategy in the Italian market, in which Emiliano will play a key role in developing and realizing the ambitious growth goals the company has set for itself.
A big fan of hybrid work environments, Emiliano brings extensive B2B sales and management experience to Kramer’s leadership team, having worked for some of the world’s leading AV companies during an illustrious 20-year career. This includes nearly 13 years spent at Crestron, where he was Sales Manager for Italy, leading the sales team.
With subsidiaries and offices in more than 20 countries and a network of representatives and distributors on every continent, Kramer is an award-winning manufacturer of advanced engagement technology solutions, each designed to eliminate boundaries and amplify the human experience to help people (and companies) reach their potential. Working with partners such as Sony, Jabra, Logitech, and Netgear, its industry-leading hardware, advanced software, and cutting-edge cloud technologies enable it to offer complete meeting room solutions for any business, counting major companies in the education, entertainment, health care, and government sectors among its customers.
Reporting to Peter Baxter, senior vice president (SVP) EMEA, Emiliano, an avid motorcyclist, will be responsible for promoting all operations and commercial initiatives, thanks to his deep knowledge and experience in the Italian market, in order to accelerate market share ambitions.
Under Emiliano’s leadership, the first phase of this new strategy will include, but will not be limited to, further promotion of brand and product awareness across all sectors, strengthening relationships with marketing channels, expanding the partner network, and identifying, developing, and winning new business opportunities. Emiliano is also overseeing a major hiring campaign in Italy, which will see the number of hires more than double in the coming months.
Speaking about his appointment, Emiliano said, “Kramer is a very professional company with excellent innovative products using hybrid work environments, classrooms, and control rooms on the market, and while the company has always been successful, we have identified some incredible new opportunities that will be able to change the face of the company and thus achieve even greater growth. The solutions we offer and the services we provide are truly market-leading, and it is my duty to ensure that the company’s potential in the Italian market reflects that. I am proud and excited to have been appointed to lead the Italian team.”
Peter Baxter, based at Kramer’s recently opened headquarters in Amsterdam, in overseeing the company’s European efforts to provide a more localized and customer-centric offering, added, “From innovative wireless presentation and collaboration to revolutionary cloud-integrated Room Control and Web-based AV network management, Kramer Solutions is setting a new standard for AV/IP convergence. The company is on the crest of a wave and it is important to have the right people in charge, both globally and regionally. I am pleased to welcome Emiliano to the team and wish him every success in this important role at Kramer.”
