Axis Communications has opened a new Canadian sales office and IP surveillance solution center in Mississauga, Ontario.
"Axis has seen tremendous growth in Canada since establishing a local sales presence five years ago," says Robert Moore, country manager, Canada, Axis Communications. "By investing in a regional office complete with an IP training and solution center, we will increase service levels to our great Canadian partners and mutual customers. Together, we can leverage the office as an educational hub to help drive network video adoption in our region by delivering top-notch surveillance and security solutions."
The new office, which is located about 30 minutes from downtown Toronto, is fully equipped with an IP surveillance solution center built to support classroom-based sessions of Axis Communications' Academy, an extensive training and certification program designed to boost partner competence and confidence about network video technology and Axis products. The inaugural Academy class at the Mississauga office is scheduled for Sept. 22-24, 2010.
Additionally, the company has expanded its local sales team by hiring Reg Collins as regional sales manager, Western Canada, and Sophie Desjardins as Canadian account executive.
As regional sales manager covering Western Canada, Collins will work closely with partners and end-customers on projects throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. With more than 10 years of experience in CCTV and security, Collins has a consistent track record of designing integrated systems and solutions at organizations such as Tri-Ed Distribution and Westrep Marketing.
Desjardins comes to Axis with a 15-year history of inside sales and customer service experience in the IT industry with companies such as Synnex Canada. Desjardins will be based in the new Mississauga office where her main responsibility will be to work closely with and support the Canadian regional sales managers and local Axis partners.
