|Jorge will direct and provide leadership for Samsung’s fast growing business development team
Jorge Gomez has been appointed Vice President of Business Development for Samsung Techwin for Europe, Russia and CIS.
Jorge is a seasoned security industry professional whose expertise and extensive knowledge of video surveillance and integrated security solutions has been acquired during successful spells at some of the industry’s leading players, including Honeywell, Thales and General Electric.
Based at Samsung Techwin’s European Headquarters in Chertsey, UK, Jorge will direct and provide leadership for the company’s fast growing business development team which is tasked with building relationships with key market influencers, including consultants, specifiers, installers and system integrators, in order to identify new sales opportunities for Samsung Techwin’s IP network based video surveillance solutions.
“I am very excited to have the opportunity to contribute to the success of a company that has such a strong IP network product portfolio,” said Jorge. “Samsung Techwin’s latest generation of open platform WiseNetIII IP video surveillance cameras and ‘plug & play’ network recording devices are revolutionising the way installers, systems integrators and end-users work with IP. In particular, the innovative open platform capabilities of the WiseNetIII DSP chipset cameras provides users with complete freedom to choose their perfect combination of video analytics and video management software (VMS) which best matches their individual requirements, and I believe this gives us a clear advantage over other manufacturers.”
Commenting on Jorge’s appointment, Mr Jong Wan Lim, Managing Director of Samsung Techwin Europe, said: “We are very fortunate to be able to recruit the services of someone of Jorge’s calibre. We are totally committed to achieving our objective of becoming Europe’s leading manufacturer IP network based video surveillance solutions and I am confident that Jorge, through his leadership of the business development team, will make a significant contribution to our achieving this goal.”
