“The EMEA region, comprised of the UK, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa currently accounts for 30 percent of our annual revenue and continues to grow every year as the demand for Avigilon’s high-definition surveillance solution continues to build,” said Alexander Fernandes, President and CEO of Avigilon. “The most recent expansion of our sales team in Europe will allow us to expand Avigilon’s footprint in this very important market and further accelerate our growth around the world.”

Reporting to Bryan Schmode, Vice President of Global Sales, Simoes will oversee Avigilon’s continued sales expansion in EMEA and Latin America, hiring new sales executives and recruiting new partners in both regions.

An experienced security sales veteran, Dean Brazenall has been appointed Senior Director of Sales for Northern Europe. Prior to joining Avigilon, Brazenell was a member of Samsung’s senior management team. Previously, he was the head of sales for Bosch in the UK, where he helped establish the company as a leading player in the UK security market at the time.

A top performing account manager, Dave Small has been appointed the new Regional Sales Manager for the UK.
