As today marks National Sales Person Day, we would like to dedicate this post to our Technical Sales Engineer, Byron Edwards. Byron originally started working for IVC Technologies in 2008 as a Junior Engineer. After nine years of consistent hard work, Byron was promoted to Technical Sales Engineer. We knew that Byron had the potential to succeed in this role due to his client led approach to work.
Byron has brought a wealth of knowledge and experience with him to the Sales role, his understanding and passion for the Audio Visual industry has allowed him to take the role by storm.
For #NationalSalesPersonDay we would like to applaud Byron for his many achievements over the years, but to particularly focus on what he has achieved whilst in the Sales role.
Expanding IVC’s Customer Base
Byron has made a conscious effort to spread the IVC name in order to expand our customer base, this is something he is doing on an ongoing basis. He has accomplished this by leading a customer centred approach and building meaningful relationships with potential clients, benchmarking IVC customer experiences. By doing this, Byron has exposed IVC to a broader market audience.
Gaining CTS Certification
After achieving his CTS and CTS-I certifications, Byron has managed to maintain these for over a decade now.
Working on Major Projects
Byron has worked on all major projects undertaken by IVC since the beginning of his employment. This has meant working closely with consultants, partners’ and clients alike in and open, honest and communicative manner – something that flows naturally for him. Byron has worked on many innovative and exciting projects that help to bring a positive change to our clients. By discussing projects with clients and gaining an understanding of the wider goals, Byron has proved himself to be vital to the process.
IVC Career Highlight
As part of our ongoing work at Wimbledon, we supported BT with their coverage of the Olympic tennis working across the estate to deliver various services and solutions in broadcast, AV and IPTV.
Outside of work, Byron has managed to complete the South Downs Way on mountain bike! This is an incredible 100 mile stretch beginning at Winchester and ending at The Seven Sisters Country Park in East Sussex.
“Through feedback from IVC’s operations department where Byron worked as a qualified AV installation engineer, I was pretty sure he had the potential to become a first class Technical Sales Engineer. So, I offered him a 3 month trial, which he grabbed with both hands.
It turned out to be one of my best decisions for a long time.”
