Film, TV and cine production solutions provider, CVP, has appointed Benoit Foucault and Niels Lubbers into senior sales roles, in Belgium and the Netherlands respectively, to coincide with the company’s continued investment and expansion into Europe with the opening of CVP Belgium.
Foucault brings over 20 years of media industry experience, most recently having spent the last ten years as sales and rental manager at TV Connections. He has a track record for establishing and developing sales, and arrives with a deep understanding of the media production market. Lubbers brings solid experience in film, TV and camera sales having built and grown CameraTools.nl for 14 years, before working with ColourTools.
“Growing our teams and CVP’s presence across Europe is a strategic priority,” said Jon Fry, managing director of CVP. “At a time of rapid growth, Benoit and Niels bring knowledge and experience of the whole supply chain – from content production, and supplier community through to content distributors. As we grow, our priority lies in continuing to bring our expertise and personalised attention closer to our customers, to be nearer to the projects and provide quicker response times.”
CVP originally set-up operations in Belgium in 2021 and has invested significantly in new sales and warehouse infrastructure since. The Belgium facility comprises 650sq/m, stocking the latest and most popular production equipment. The facility enables the company to tackle the challenge of availability with its large local stock holding across both the UK and Belgium, and improves delivery times and access to knowledgeable technical sales and support advisors. Customers can also access more competitive prices for their kit from mainland Europe, as CVP Belgium offers free shipping on EU orders over €1,000 and duty and VAT free prices where applicable.
“CVP Belgium provides a practical solution to the needs and challenges of our EU customers, removing their barriers to efficient and cost-effective productions. Our presence in Europe fulfils our mission to put our customers at the heart of our operations,” added Fry.
