Midwich Expands Infrastructure Team

 Midwich has appointed Nigel Thompson as product sales specialist for infrastructure bringing his wealth of experience on racks and surge elimination to the team.

With more than 27 years in distribution, Nigel, 59, has built his extensive knowledge working on Middle Atlantic and SurgeX at RGB Communications and has provided vital advice to customers on the importance of rack ventilation and protection of equipment.

Nigel said: “My goal is to highlight the significance of having the right infrastructure within a project and this includes racks, surge elimination, lighting control, and cable management. There are so many options available, and it can be easy to miss key aspects when specifying. I aim to streamline this process by helping our customers to identify what they need early on and, therefore, find their perfect solution to what is the central place for where kit is installed, including how to protect it.

“The move to Midwich is an exciting step and I look forward to working with the team to continue reinforcing the relationships we have with our vendors and customers.”

In his new role, Nigel will be focusing on the Lutron, Middle Atlantic and SurgeX product portfolios at Midwich.

Greg Bennett, divisional manager, commented: “We are thrilled to be welcoming Nigel to the Midwich team. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience on infrastructure-based solutions and his appointment bolsters our technical offering to customers.

“Lighting control, power management, and rack specification are critical and sometimes complex parts of any audiovisual project. Customers are now able to leverage Nigel’s skill set in the design and specification process, remotely or on-site. This value-added service complements our ability to support our customers for all of their audiovisual needs.”

A field-based role, Nigel will be available to assist customers on site, via email or over the phone.
