Charlie Solan appointed as Group Operations Manager of Eurotek Group Holdings

Eurotek Group Holdings, the umbrella company for Eurotek and Avtek Solutions, has appointed Charlie Solan as their Group Operations Manager.

Eurotek is the market leader in the design, supply, installation and integration of audio-visual communications equipment while Avtek Solutions provides quality audio-visual creative and activation services and technical support to live events, conferences and high end visual projects.

Charlie brings a wealth of experience to his new role, particularly in the areas of organisation, team planning and large-scale logistics management. With a team of 50 and a fleet of almost 30 vehicles across both Eurotek and Avtek, scheduling and planning the organisation’s resources has become a critical role. Charlie will be responsible for delivering increased efficiencies and planning the roll-out and delivery of a range of services.

Before joining Eurotek Group Holdings, Charlie was regional logistics manager with Lidl Ireland, where he worked with a team over 100 people, devising and executing strategic plans to stimulate staff performance. Prior to that, he was an Operations Manager in University College Dublin, overseeing the construction handover and start-up phase of the UCD Sport and Fitness complex, the largest student and leisure facility in Europe. Charlie holds an Executive MBA from the Michael Smurfit Graduate School of Business.

John Roche, Group CEO of Eurotek Group Holdings, says:

“Charlie is joining the group at an exciting time of expansion. His experience in the planning and implementation of team activity in his previous organisations has provided him with a great range of expertise that we can tap into. Although we are still classified as an SME, between Eurotek and Avtek, we now have a very significant manpower and logistics operation, and increasing our in-house resources will be critical to our continual growth and expansion.

Charlie Solan, Group Operations Manager, says:

“This role offers me a fantastic new challenge in a really innovative company. The range of technical expertise and innovation in both Eurotek and Avtek is really exciting, and I’m looking forward to working with the teams to grow the business even further. And with Eurotek celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, it’s a great time to take stock and make sure we’re ready for the next growth phase of the group.”
