Kimberly Beard has joined distributor DigiBox as product development and account manager.

Beard, who joined DigiBox earlier this month, will report to group commercial director Jayson Chase.

As part of the newly-created role she will manage some of DigiBox’s key accounts, working to develop product strategy and grow the business throughout the UK and Europe.

She previously held the positions of brand manager for Blackmagic Design at Holdan and business manager for Media and Entertainment at Jigsaw24.

“Kimberly has both the business knowledge and energy to succeed in this role,” said Chase.

“As the broadcast and professional AV markets converge, we’re expanding our expertise to a wider range of vertical markets.

“Kimberly’s experience and understanding of industry products and services will enable her to fully support our network of manufacturers and resellers as we look to grow.”
