Avigilon reorganizes management structure
Vancouver-based Avigilon announced Wednesday it is reorganizing its management team and streamlining its reporting structure.
Avigilon’s product development, sales, marketing, operations, finance, legal and human resources will now report directly to Alexander Fernandes, Avigilon’s founder, president, CEO and chairman of the board.
The company also announced two major departures: Bryan Schmode has resigned as Avigilon’s chief operating officer and Collis Heath, Avigilon’s former senior vice-president of global operations, has also left the company.
Schmode will provide consulting services to the company over the next year.
“Avigilon has experienced tremendous growth in its business and employee base,” says Schmode in a prepared statement. “I’m extremely proud of Avigilon’s achievements and ongoing success.”
“I wish to thank Bryan for his contributions to Avigilon, which have greatly added to our success,” adds Fernandes. “This reorganization is the culmination of recent management changes designed to foster a nimble and dynamic culture. Avigilon outpaces its competitors, and our refreshed leadership structure supports this fast pace by facilitating efficient decision-making and innovation.”
