Nice/Nortek Control has announced the hiring of Phil Hardaway as the newest Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Sales Manager to join the team.
Hardaway comes to Nice/Nortek Control from Snap One, where he has spent the last seven years of his career. Prior to then, he worked primarily with Savant Systems Europe at a European AV distributor. Overall, Hardaway has dedicated more than two decades of his life to the smart home, AV and custom installation industry. In his new role at Nice/Nortek Control, he’ll lead and represent international sales in the European Union (EU) while supporting the distribution network throughout the EMEA.
“It’s clear Phil brings immeasurable enthusiasm for his career as a diligent and determined sales professional. We’re thrilled to have him join us at Nice/Nortek Control amid a very exciting time in the company,” states Horacio Morales, director of international sales at Nice/Nortek Control.
“We’re confident in Phil’s abilities to lead and eager to tap into his wealth of knowledge and expertise. He’s the perfect fit to motivate and inspire our international sales team while working alongside our partners on residential, commercial and industrial installs.”
According to the company, Phil Hardaway comes well-prepared for the position with a multitude of experience in a variety of different roles, including sales management, export sales, business development, account management, marketing, and technical support.
Twenty years into his own career, now, he has worked with many manufacturers and specialist distributors – and has enjoyed being a part of how home technology has grown and evolved over the years. One of Hardaway’s career highlights thus far has been personally selling British Olympic track star, Iwan Thomas, his very own professionally installed smart home system.
“I love innovation in our industry, and the smart home truly brings together the most cutting-edge technologies that the market has to offer,” adds Hardaway.
“I’m eager to get started because to me, this is more than just my job – it’s my hobby and my passion. I find being passionate about the products you represent should be a priority. With that, I’m excited to take Nice/Nortek Control’s development in the EMEA to the next level.”
