Ian Aitken

Exertis has today announced the promotion of Ian Aitken to Exertis Medium AV director with responsibility for sales and commercial operations. He will report to Phil Brown, Exertis IT sales and commercial director.
Aitken takes on the leadership role of Exertis Medium following the departure of Ian Sempers the founder, owner and CEO of Medium (UK) Ltd, acquired by Exertis last year.

Paul Bryan, Exertis UK managing director said, “Firstly I would like to thank Ian Sempers for his contribution and professionalism in conducting a seamless integration of the business. There is no doubt that he has been instrumental in combining our existing AV business with that of Medium to create a dynamic, high growth division which will be a key part of the Exertis proposition moving forward. We wish Ian Sempers all the best for the future and at the same time congratulate Ian Aitken on his promotion. Ian has built a successful AV division at Exertis over the last six years, establishing key relationships with vendors and customers, and demonstrating excellent leadership skills.”

Commenting on his decision, Sempers stated ‘It is now time to hand over the reigns to enable me to concentrate on other interests and opportunities. I wish Exertis the best of luck with their future’.

Aitken will head up the Exertis Medium business at their new facility at Stockley Park, London. “I am excited by the opportunity. We have an excellent team combining the strengths of two well established AV companies that can provide our customers with business continuity, technical expertise and a portfolio of leading vendors with products and solutions that can cater for the requirements of AV specialist resellers and IT resellers that have an AV proposition.”
