These appointments follow several other recent key leadership hires. This includes Bob Germain, Vicon’s director of hardware management, and Rakesh Sharma, director of hardware engineering. Recent hires also include Leland Jacobson, who serves Vicon as regional sales manager covering Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Arkansas; and Bob Kriegisch, as regional sales manager covering Delaware, New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania.
