In this newly created position, Mr. Bardhan’s responsibilities will expand to include the entire continent of Africa. From his office in Dubai, he will oversee manufacturer representative groups in the region, as well as regional sales managers.
“Sanjit has made significant contributions to our growth in the Middle East. The Middle East Africa region is one of the fastest-growing areas of our global business. We have developed very strong relationships with key distributors and systems integrators who have provided excellent Arecont Vision solutions to some of the best known end-user businesses and organizations in the region,” said Scott Schafer, Executive Vice President, Arecont Vision. “This promotion reflects our confidence in Sanjit’s ability to use his knowledge and experience to drive continued market development in this important region.
