JONATHON Liaros has joined boutique distributor SensaTek as district account executive. Liaros, who began his career as a technician, has most recently held positions at Hills and Allegion.
According to Liaros, one of the attractions of joining SensaTek was that the company is a blank slate defined only by an intense commitment to customer support.
“SensaTek is a blank slate so it’s about building relationships, bringing in the business and supporting it,” Liaros said. “We have a major task at hand building the business but the response from the market has been excellent and that suggests we are on the right track in terms of the direction we are taking.”
Liaros said brands like Vicon, Aimetis and Vivotek also attracted him to join SensaTek.
“Vicon is arguably the oldest CCTV manufacturer in the world and it has some impressive products that draw on the latest technologies,” he said. “Aimetis is another strong solution that has not had much exposure in Australia but is generating plenty of interest from end users.
“A particular positive at SensaTek is the opportunity to work closely with Vivotek, which is right up among the top brands – a strong range at a competitive price – well supported in Australia by Farshid Parhizkari, who is so passionate about the product.
“Vivotek as a company is available – the team is willing to re-design products to meet applications,” Liaros said. “It’s a brand I think we will see break through over the next 12 months and I’m looking forward to being part of that success.”
Meanwhile SensaTek’s managing director, Bill Barbagiannakos, said Liaros will be a major asset to the business.
“Jonathan began his career back in 1999 as a technician and his most recent role was supporting enterprise solutions at Hills Ltd, so he’s the complete package,” Barbagiannakos said.
“As well as being technical, Jonathan is a people person who is committed to building working relationships with integrators and end users – that commitment is what defines the SensaTek business.”
According to Barbagiannakos, the SensaTek team will continue to expand, with additional announcements coming soon.♦
