Polar, established supplier of key industry brands to the installation, MI and professional audio markets, has appointed Adrian Hamilton to the post of Business Development Manager for Ireland. Having studied electronic engineering, Adrian moved into IT before combining his fields of expertise to forge an impressive 25 year career in AVIT. He possesses a wealth of international experience across the sector, having developed his career in South Africa before moving via Dubai to Singapore, where he spent seven years as Technical Manager for AMX by HARMAN. Based near Dublin, Adrian offers POLAR a formidable set of technical skills, combined with experience of leadership in senior management positions.
Stuart Leader, Director of POLAR Integrated Solutions is pleased to have secured the services of another exceptional individual: “Adrian is an outstanding professional who has enjoyed a truly global career. His technical expertise is unquestionable and he complements this with a highly dynamic approach to business. We already had an established base of business activity in Ireland but we wanted to develop further the opportunities available to us and recognised that in-region, local support was essential. It would be almost impossible to find a better fit for this position. With great communication skills and an instinctive feel and vision for integrated solutions, Adrian is perfectly equipped to pro-actively develop and strengthen POLAR’s business in the region.”
Adrian Hamilton commented: “AVIT is my passion and I’ve been immersed in the industry at every level, across multiple continents for more than 25 years. After returning to my ancestral roots here in Ireland, I was looking to take on a new challenge that would make demands upon every area of my experience. My particular strengths lie in Audio Visual Control and Integrated Systems, so given POLAR’s evolution from its roots in specialised audio, to its current position as a major distributor of AV and AVIT products and services, there is a clear synergy at work in my joining the team. I’m very much looking to expanding POLAR’s reach in Ireland and supporting our customers in the delivery of imaginative, efficient, cutting edge solutions.”
