In June 2016, Anatech Distribution was created following its appointment to promote and distribute Bluesound and NAD BluOS products to the UK and Ireland market.
On the back of substantial sales growth in 2020, Anatech are seeking an experienced CI sales/marketing professional to drive further successes for the brands in both the CI and retail channels.
If you are a seasoned professional, with established connections within the CI market, looking for new challenges and commensurate rewards for success, we'd like to hear from you.
Anatech operate as brand ambassadors and act as if they are the manufacturer's own representatives in the UK. Therefore the role is suitable to those with experience of either value-added distribution or manufacturer representation.
The role will be a mixture of office (Twickenham, West London) and home working along with field-based activities. It comprises a combination of both sales and marketing-driven activities in order to maximise coverage efficiencies. In addition to an understanding of the A/V and CI sector, you should already have a strong appreciation and enthusiasm for networked audio systems, music streaming and integration with various control systems.

Participation in trade body events (Essential Install, CEDIA, ISE and others)
Managing promotions and campaigns with the manufacturer.
Handling initial dealer installation technical issues (and passing to 1st or 2nd level technical support after qualifying)
Reporting directly to the owner of the business, the position is a senior role within the company and will therefore demand a high degree of initiative and self motivation as well as an existing understanding of the unique nature of the CI marketplace.
For the right candidate, and with success, the role is intended to lead to a directorship position within three years.
Essential requirements include:
Communication skills to be a strong brand ambassador.
Technical appreciation of networking, streaming and control systems to be able to discuss the details of the brands represented
