In this role, Reed will collaborate with the company’s regional sales directors across the UK, Europe, Turkey, APAC and South Asia, and align with other senior sales executives to streamline account acquisition. Reed’s extensive experience in building strategic alliances will help Oncam optimize growth opportunities and accelerate global go-to-market strategies. He will focus on building strategic partnerships, and driving sales for video surveillance and business intelligence solutions.
Reed joined the sales team in 2016 as the Regional Sales Director for Northern Europe from Samsung Techwin, where he served as the Retail Business Development Manager.
