Genetec names Stephan Kaiser as new GM for AutoVu
Genetec, a provider of unified IP security solutions, announced on August 28 a number of strategic hires and changes that have been made to the organization in recent quarters to further position the business for growth.
Stephan Kaiser, who was previously Genetec's North American director of sales, will now head the company’s license plate recognition segment to help support increased global demand for Genetec's AutoVu product line.
Andrew Elvish has been appointed vice president of worldwide marketing. In this newly-created position, Elvish will be responsible for further developing the Genetec brand across new markets, and putting in place global go-to-market and communications strategies designed to support Genetec's rapid growth. He comes to Genetec from Presagis, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CAE, Inc., where he was vice president of marketing and operations.
Jill Ram has joined Genetec as the company's new vice president of human resources. She brings 15 years of experience and a strong background in leading human resources for a variety of technology organizations in both start-up and mature phases. At Genetec, Ram will devise HR strategies to help drive the company's global growth plans and develop company-wide programs that foster Genetec's culture of innovation, dedication and exceptional customer care across borders and cultures.
"Thanks to increasing market requirements for IP video surveillance, access control, and license plate recognition solutions, Genetec has enjoyed an average annual revenue growth rate of about 30 percent," said Genetec's CEO, Pierre Racz. “We have developed an integrated security platform that meets the needs of customers across the retail, transportation, education, and government sectors and are rapidly expanding our international operations.”
