Arecont Vision has announced the retirement of Carole Dougan as vice-president of North American sales.
“Carole joined Arecont Vision six years ago as our vice-president of strategic accounts for the Americas. She did an excellent job building our business with our top distributors and systems integrators based in the USA,” said Scott Schafer, executive vice-president, Arecont Vision. “When we promoted Carole to vice-president of North American sales in 2012, she built a strong sales organization that brought many new field sales people into the company that are contributing to our success today and will continue to do so in the future.”
