Tony Hilder heads the Sydney office as the new country sales manager for Australia and New Zealand.
“The opening of a new office and the appointment of Tony Hilder as Country Sales Manager for Australia and New Zealand is an important move to strengthen our presence in the region.” explains Theodor Prümm, Managing Director at ACG. “In Australia, a number of important projects have paved the road to mass adoption of advanced auto ID technologies: three out of five states have decided to deploy electronic ticketing solutions for their public transportation systems; and public institutions are expressing an increasing demand for integrated physical and logical access control solutions. In order to meet the increasing demand for cost effective electronic ticket- and smart card-based solutions, we have created a strong team close to our customers. The broad experience and know-how of Tony Hilder, built-up in years of successful interaction with the local smart card industry, is extremely precious to ACG and to customers looking for vendor independent support.”
Hilder has previously worked for Johnson Controls and Chubb, where he was responsible for sales of building automation systems supporting applications in the fields of security, access control, and energy management. Over the last four years he has acted as the Marketing and Sales Manager for Smart Silicon Systems, a company that provides software and hardware development services specializing in smart card technology.
