Christchurch tech firm has a Brazilian... Appoints Latin America GM

“We expect to grow revenue opportunities in Latin America for both our platforms and products and our services and solutions offerings."

New Zealand critical communications company Tait Communications has appointed Luiz Daniel Salomon as General Manager to lead Tait Brazil, its new Latin America hub in São Paulo.

According to the Christchurch-based global firm, Salomon is tasked with strengthening Tait’s presence and growth prospects in Latin America following the company’s acquisition of long-time partner SGM Telecomunicações in September 2014.

Trained as an electrical engineer, Salomon brings over 18 year experience in sales and general management and has a strong understanding of Latin America, acting previously as Business Director for General Electric (GE),

“We are already seeing the strategic advantage of a having a local presence in Brazil and we are pleased that Daniel has come on board to lead the team as we explore opportunities available across Latin America,” says Victor Agnellini, President, Tait Americas.

“We expect to grow revenue opportunities in Latin America for both our platforms and products and our services and solutions offerings.

"Daniel’s background in sales and engineering, combined with his knowledge and experience in this region, will be invaluable to the company as we look to build on the outstanding market development work the team in Latin America has already achieved.”

Tait has worked in partnership with SGM Telecomunicações for over 20 years and together have won numerous analogue and digital communications contracts across Brazil's 27 states and throughout Latin America.

Such wins include contracts with São Paulo Military and Civil Police, Minas Gerais Military Police (PMMG), Polícia Militar do Paraná (Military Police of the State of Paraná), Companhia Paranaense de Energia (COPEL) and Petrobras.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
