Midwich Group has announced that Jenny Hicks has been promoted to the role of Head of Technology. With a strong background in technology sales, Jenny has been with Midwich since 2012 where she joined the technical division as an IP Video Specialist. She later progressed to the role of Technology Manager in 2013, responsible for managing the company’s portfolio of technical video brands. Following the launch of the Technical Division in 2015, Jenny assumed the role of managing the company’s Technology Specialists and Technical Support teams.
Jenny’s role as Head of Technology will predominantly focus on UK projects but has also been expanded to provide oversight of the Group’s domestic and international technical projects, and will include working with the Group’s technical vendors and exploring new technology ventures. She will also be responsible for providing insight and trend analysis to company management.
Speaking about her new role, Jenny commented: “I am looking forward to exploring new technology markets, and utilising our global expertise to enhance the Group’s capabilities in all territories. The breadth of knowledge across our numerous businesses at Group level is Midwich’s greatest strength. Each business is unique in their specialist areas and I am excited to learn from them to drive future opportunities.”
On Jenny’s appointment, Tom Sumner, European Director, noted: “I am confident that Jenny’s strong technical knowledge, coupled with a sound commercial awareness will therefore be of great benefit to the wider international Group, in addition to our UK operations.”
