Diversified_AV_AwardsLONDON, UK – Diversified, a global provider of innovative technology solutions and managed services is proud to announce that Daryl Clarke, Senior Vice President of EMEA, has been shortlisted for the 2018 AV Professional of the Year Award. This year will mark the fourth year in a row that the company’s EMEA team has been recognized as an AV Award finalist or winner.

Daryl Clarke is the former owner and managing director of UK-based Digitavia, an AV integrator that perfected global meeting room deployments for enterprise clients and provided standardized AV solutions and support services for efficient and predictable outcomes. In six short years, Daryl took Digitavia from a four-person startup to a global business with almost 80 employees.

“It is a great honor to be shortlisted for this year’s AV Professional of the Year Award,” commented Daryl. “Not only is this recognition a testament to the hard work and dedication put forth by the team at Digitavia, but more importantly, the great future we have ahead of us with Diversified.”

Daryl was chosen for the shortlist because of his strong contributions to the AV industry and UK market. During a 26-year career in AV, businesses founded and run by Daryl have contributed more than £250 million in sales and created more than 250 UK-based jobs.

Having acquired Digitavia earlier this year, Diversified has hit the ground running in spreading its international presence across EMEA and continuing the momentum that Daryl started. Through these activities, Daryl has quickly become a key member of the Diversified team, supporting the company’s global strategy and sharing his knowledge and expertise of the EMEA market.

“I am proud to be able to say that Daryl and the great team he has built are part of the Diversified family,” said Fred D’Alessandro, Founder and CEO of Diversified. “His commitment to delivering efficient, innovative solutions for our global clientele stands out among the rest and makes him truly deserving of this prestigious award.”

The winners of the 2018 AV Awards will be announced at the awards ceremony, to be held in the Great Room at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane on Friday, 28 September 2018.
