AMG Systems announced that David Beanland has joined the company as GM for the Middle East, based out of Abu Dhabi. As co-founder of Vision Factory in 1994, David has an extensive background from the surveillance industry. Under his directorship the company developed Montage – an innovative range of video surveillance multiplexers. After selling the company in 2003 David has worked with Grandeye as Head of Sales EMEA and Asia and more recently as GM Middle East.
Prior to founding Vision Factory David worked for more than 10 years as Technical Director and MD of AVS Broadcast, a company which manufactures broadcast TV equipment. Here, amongst other achievements, he founded and grew the US subsidiary and formed 3 new divisions for signal processing, graphics and video effects.
"AMG continues to enjoy significant market growth and the Middle East is a strategic and highly-valuable market for the company. I am delighted that David, with his extensive technical and commercial background and expertise, has joined us. I am convinced that our customers and partners in the Middle East will benefit from his insight and the fact that he is located in Abu Dhabi makes it easy to travel throughout the region for increased support," said Alan Hayes, Founder and MD of AMG Systems.
"AMG offers a unique service to its clients. The direct access to free technical support shows the dedication the company puts into each and every project they've worked with. I have known the company for many years and what particularly attracted me is the fact that in spite of having grown to be one of the companies in its field globally, AMG retains its friendly small company feel, and enjoys an excellent reputation and image. Furthermore, AMG's products are cutting-edge. Outside of that, the company has always enjoyed a reputation for delivering products of high quality. The Middle East is a significant market for AMG's products with many high-profile reference installations and I am looking forward to build on the success for continued business development in the region," David commented.
