Qognify has announced the expansion of its sales team with five appointments in the North America region. The creation of new roles in business development, sales and sales engineering is in response to the growing demand that Qognify has experienced in the past 12 months for integrated physical security solutions that improve the outcomes while reducing complexity.
Strengthening the Physical Security sales team, Christy Bauswell brings more than 20 years of experience in the video surveillance industry to her role as Senior Key Accounts Manager, in which she focuses on working with customers in the Central and Southeast region. Joining Christy is Jonathan Kelley, an experienced Solutions Engineer serving the West and John Ryle as Enterprise Markets Business Development Manager. As a Channel Sales Manager – Southcentral & Midwest, Eric Fort will be supporting Qognify’s channel partners to help their customers achieve the best possible outcomes for their physical security goals. He has been working in the security sector since 2004.
On the Enterprise Incident Management (EIM) side of the business, George Cikalo joins Qognify’s North America team as a Strategic Account Manager, serving the Northeast US and Eastern Canada.
Jeremy Howard, VP of Physical Security Sales for the Americas at Qognify, states: “Organisations that place a premium on physical security are increasingly looking for centralised and integrated technology solutions that can help them cope with the increased complexity of more data, more systems and more regulation. As a result, we have seen a growing demand both for our EIM solution Situator and for our new VMS+ VisionHub that is focused on video-centric control room environments.”
The new appointments support Qognify’s North America team to help its customers and channel partner network address the evolving physical security and operational challenges with an extensive portfolio of video management systems (VMS), VMS+ and EIM solutions. Howard adds: “We have expanded our team to ensure any enterprise operating anywhere in the US has access to the experience, expertise, solutions and ongoing support they need, when they need it.”
