Our record growth in this market is evidence of our ongoing commitment to delivering industry-leading solutions,” said Samuel Mueller, CEO of Scandit.
The company also announced that it has expanded its growing international team with the hire of two new strategic sales directors: Paul Davis has been brought on to develop business through direct sales and indirect channels for Northern Europe and Asia and Christian Schilling has been brought on to do the same for Eastern and Southern Europe as well as all German-speaking countries.
“As Scandit makes strides in Europe and new markets around the world, it’s incredibly important that our executive team represents the brightest and most strategic players in our industry. Both Paul and Christian are heavy-hitters with deep domain experience and proven success expanding sales operations in their respective markets. I’m excited to bring them on board and leverage their expertise to expand across Europe and Asia in 2015 and beyond,” Mueller added.
