Based primarily at the company’s Manchester headquarters, Simon’s appointment is effective immediately. A seasoned industry professional of 20 years, he brings a wealth of AV industry experience alongside intimate knowledge of the channel from end user right up to vendor verticals to this key position.
Simon joined Digital Projection from SCC, Europe’s largest independent technology solutions company, where he was AV sales specialist manager.

At Digital Projection, Simon will assume responsibility for overseeing and developing the business in the UK & Ireland. With the company firmly established in the UK as its home market and charting exceptional growth in recent years, the role is a key strategic position. His appointment is central to the company’s plans to further build the channel, as well as relationships with distributors and system integrators – and drive forward its future success.
With first-hand experience of what matters to Digital Projection’s valued partners, Simon will support the team in meeting the needs of clients’ businesses, both in terms of product and service. Customers will continue to receive the world-class service they have become accustomed to and for which Digital Projection is renowned – along with an enhanced care for what’s important to their businesses as a result of his in-depth understanding of the marketplace.
On his appointment, Simon comments: “I’m thrilled to join Digital Projection – a true industry leader and the company which pioneered DLP projection. It is exciting to be part of a team which is really at the forefront of projector technology, constantly developing innovative new products and pushing the industry forward. There are some brilliant new products in the pipeline and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to facilitate their launch to market.”
