POLAR appoints Andrew Plunkett

POLAR  supplier of key industry brands to the installation, MI and professional audio markets has announced the appointment of Andrew Plunkett to the post of Business Development Manager for Public Address/Voice Alarm. A highly experienced industry professional, Andrew joins POLAR after 15 years at TG Baker where he gained wide-ranging and significant experience in the design and distribution of public address, voice reinforcement and voice evacuation equipment.

An experienced project manager, Andrew has worked across diverse markets including industrial, leisure, education and most recently, on large-scale stadium installations and joins POLAR to develop this area of its business. As well as liaising with new and existing customers, Andrew’s system design expertise will help introduce the commercial ranges in POLAR’s portfolio to organisations whose core business is not necessarily focused on audio installation alone.

Stuart Leader, Director of POLAR Integrated Solutions welcomes Andrew’s appointment: “It’s clear that Andrew’s know-how in this field mark him out as an excellent asset to POLAR. We continue to grow our business and expand a formidable range of expertise across our team, enabling us to provide the very highest levels of support to our customers. Andrew possesses a thorough understanding of the industry and brings vast experience of designing systems for every scale and complexity of application. He’s an outstanding professional and we’re delighted to have him as part of our team.”

Andrew added: “I have always admired POLAR as an organisation. It has a superbly supported stable of quality commercial audio brands and I’m looking forward to introducing these to new markets, as well as helping POLAR’s existing partners to confidently execute projects that draw on my area of expertise. It’s so encouraging to have such a rich core product-palette from which to support a full range of commercial audio solutions – from a small-scale public address and background music, to large-scale distributed systems. I’m particularly excited about introducing customers to the POLAR range of products, including the powerful Vocia platform from BIAMP, which delivers  high-end, networked public address and voice alarm solutions with really integrator-friendly implementation.”
