UAE: Media Group International (MGI) has named John Aslett as managing director of its international operation based in Dubai. Mr Aslett is the former director of Avid emerging markets and has 18 years' management and board level experience in the Middle East.
‘John's strong technical background in broadcast and IT, combined with his regional knowledge and extensive sales experience, makes him a valuable asset for MGI and we are delighted that he is now heading up our Dubai operation,’ said Paul Hennessy, CEO of MGI.
‘I am thrilled to be joining the company at such an exciting point in its development,’ added Mr Aslett. ‘Business is building fast and there are numerous opportunities in the pipeline. MGI has always put service and support at the heart of its corporate philosophy and I share that vision. I am confident that by focusing on quality and customer service, we can ensure that MGI's Dubai operation goes from strength to strength.’
MGI is also opening a pre-build facility which will give customers the opportunity to experience and comment on their systems in order to enhance workflow. This will be backed by pre-deployment training at MGI's new Training Academy in Dubai Studio City, where customers can become familiar with new equipment prior to installation.
