Sony Professional Solutions MEA has named Rob Sherman as MD, charged with promoting the company’s profile and expanding its business within the MEA markets.

Rob ShermanBorn in Iraq and raised in Kuwait, Sherman will now be based at Sony's HQ in Dubai's International Media Production Zone. ‘I bring a global outlook with local perspective to provide leadership to the Sony Professional Solutions MEA team,’ he says. ‘The size of the Middle East and Africa market is enormous, and the level of development and investment in pockets of this geography are incredibly exciting.’

Prior to joining Sony, Sherman was a sales executive at Racal Electronics.

‘I know the market well and hope to build on the achievements of the team based here,’ he says. ‘This region is incredibly important to Sony Professional and I hope to bring the knowledge, experience and expertise that the team and our customers are looking for. My ultimate goal is to ensure that our customers continue to receive reliable and responsive customer support,’ he says. ‘We are committed to assisting the broadcast industry to develop further by increasing service support in emerging African markets in particular, and to developing talent in the MEA regional team.’

‘Rob’s extensive experience in the Middle East and Africa region speaks volumes,’ says Sony Professional Solutions MEA’s General Marketing Manager, Shuji Okada. ‘I am certain that his commitment and understanding of our customers will prove to be an asset to us.’
