Prior to Ross, Gardner worked for Vistek, ProBel, Snell, SAM and Grass Valley.
Mark Gardner takes on enhanced role at Ross as Director of Sales for EMEA.
Mark joined Ross last year as Regional Sales Director for EMEA North and has overseen an expansion of the team and company footprint in the region.
Oscar Juste, Senior Vice President of Global Sales, said: “I’m delighted Mark has accepted our invitation to take on this enhanced role. Mark is a highly accomplished sales professional and his calm professionalism, drive and pragmatic approach have been very valuable qualities during what has been another challenging year for the industry. He has done an excellent job of supporting our sales team in EMEA North and our regional partner network, delivering additional growth and bucking industry trends along the way. This new, expanded role puts Mark in charge of our ambitious growth plan for the whole EMEA territory and I have every faith in his ability to deliver.”
Gardner added: “Prior to Covid, the EMEA team was on a remarkable growth streak and doubled our regional turnover in three years. Since joining Ross I’ve been incredibly impressed with the team and our partners, and I see no reason why we cannot double the size of the business again once the world returns to a more typical style of doing business. We’ve got the industry’s widest range of high impact, high-efficiency production solutions and we’re partnering with some of the biggest regional names in broadcast, sports, esports and live events, so there is a great deal to be optimistic about.”
