Samsung Techwin America Appoints Soon Hong Ahn as President

Samsung Techwin America announces the appointment of Soon Hong Ahn as president of the video surveillance and security products supplier.

Formerly vice president of global sales and marketing for the security division of Samsung Techwin Co. Ltd. in Korea, Ahn is familiar with the unique challenges and opportunities of the security and video surveillance markets in North America and Latin America. A frequent traveler to both regions, Ahn will provide management perspective and leadership as Samsung Techwin America continues on its path of sustained sales growth.

“I am very pleased to now be able to focus my full attention on the important security and video surveillance markets in the Americas,” Ahn said. “My new position provides a great opportunity to help position Samsung Techwin America as the market leader. I am especially interested in receiving feedback from the dealer, integrator and end-user communities to help guide our efforts to improve and to earn new business."

As a strategic thinker with global experience, Ahn has already been a strong supporter of Samsung's evolution and growth in the North American and Latin American markets in the last two years. Samsung has focused on being a comprehensive supplier of security systems including video surveillance, access control, intrusion detection and alarm systems. The company has an ongoing commitment to technology leadership, which includes development of new analog and network DSP chipsets equipped with differentiated core algorithms as a basis for video surveillance products.

Samsung has also added an access control line, including standalone controllers and Wiegand-output readers that combine 125KHz proximity or 13.56 MHz contactless smart card credentialing, keypad access based on personal identification numbers and/or fingerprint biometrics.
