MONTRÉAL — Genetec Inc. has announced new initiatives to support its growth in Mexico.
Long time Genetec sales leader, Alain Bissada, who is currently senior director for Canada, is taking on a new expanded role to include Mexico as part of his responsibilities. In this new position, Genetec says Bissada will be responsible for supporting the company’s wide range of public safety, industrial, enterprise, retail and banking customers in Mexico.
The company will also be moving to new offices in the Polanco region of Mexico City, featuring an experience center to showcase its entire range of IP security solutions, a sales engineering lab, training facilities, and additional space to accommodate new employees.
Genetec says it has been growing its market presence in Mexico at a very rapid pace. The company currently has public safety customers in 26 out of Mexico’s 32 states, and hundreds of private customers across a wide range of industries including manufacturing, logistics, utilities, hospitality and more.
“Customers are looking for technology solutions that not only enable them to protect people and assets but also help them make the most of their video surveillance and physical security infrastructure investment to improve their operations,” said Alain Bissada, senior director, Canada and Mexico, in a prepared statement. “I look forward to working with our talented team and network of systems integrators in Mexico to support our ambitious plans in the region and to give our customers the support they need to meet their security and business operations needs.”
