Genetec looks for growth in Oceania with newest hire


SYDNEY Nov. 20, 2016 Genetec Inc. (“Genetec”), a leading provider of open-architecture, unified IP security solutions today announced that it has appointed Mr. Philippe Ouimette as its country manager for the Oceania region. In his new role, Mr. Ouimette will lead Genetec business growth and nurture new market opportunities, working directly with Genetec exclusive distributor, Hills Security, Fire, CCTV & IT solutions, Australia’s leading security technology provider.

Focused on bringing new, innovative unified IP security solutions to the growing security market in Australia, New Zealand and throughout Oceania, Mr. Ouimette and Hills will work with channel partners and end-users to introduce flexible, unified security systems supported by Genetec Security Center and its catalog of hardware and services. Hills offers Genetec Security Center as its exclusive physical IP security system—chosen for its open architecture, quality, scalability and accessible software developer’s kit (SDK). Hills also offers a wide portfolio of complementary security technology hardware and edge devices including IP CCTV cameras, IP access control hardware and IP intercoms.

With 18 years of experience in the physical security industry, Mr. Ouimette transfers from the Genetec Montréal headquarters, where he served as Director of Strategic Alliances. In that role, Mr. Ouimette built a global ecosystem of technology partners, ensuring they were certified to develop and support hardware and software-compliant edge devices and systems for the Genetec security platform, Security Center.

“Working for a globally recognized, technology leader like Genetec, I’ve been able to learn about and recognize regional differences and drivers that will benefit the growing Oceania market,” said Ouimette. “The security market in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands is growing at an exponential rate and it is an exciting time to work together with Hills Australia to address the region's security requirements with our extensive portfolio of innovative technologies," he added.

“We welcome Philippe as the country manager for the Oceania region, and look forward to working with him and the Genetec team to deliver innovative security solutions to the many business and enterprise customers we serve,” said Hills CEO, David Lenz said. “We are genuinely excited by Genetec’s continued interest and investment in the Australian and New Zealand markets and, with Genetec Security Center a recent winner of the Product of the Year Award for Excellence and Innovation for CCTV at the ASIAL Security Industry Awards 2016, the timing is right to drive new business in this growing market,” added Lenz.
