CCTV manufacturing company, 360 Vision Technology, has promoted Mark Rees from Business Development Director, to Managing Director. This appointment which coincides with the announcement that Phil Burton will become the manufacturer’s Chairman.
Rees is a founding director and shareholder of 360 Vision Technology and has continuously developed his responsibilities throughout his career at the company. This included a promotion from Sales Director to Business Development Director, during which time he pioneered the transition of 360 Vision products from analogue to digital.
The new MD also spearheaded the task of developing a wide range of technical partners across the globe, ensuring the manufacturer’s range of products were compatible with virtually all leading video management systems. More recently, he has focused his energies on developing the substantial export potential for 360 Vision’s range of high-end ruggedised products and has started building a structure of in-country sales presence, starting with France.
“After 16 years of predominantly being in sales focused positions at 360 Vision, I feel massively privileged and proud to be taking on the role of Managing Director,” said Rees. “This will allow Phil Burton to step back from his day-to-day management at 360 Vision and focus more on the strategic direction and opportunities that present themselves.
“I’m excited about the prospect of working closely with the full management team and steering the progress of 360 Vision through the current turbulent times of Brexit and beyond, which I believe will present many opportunities to continue sales growth, innovate new products, and establish 360 Vision’s product portfolio in an increasing number of world markets.
“I take great pleasure in working with our many customers both here in the UK and overseas – this offers me a great insight into the future trends and requirements of our industry. I will therefore retain these activities and when viable, develop a solid local sales presence for our industry leading products in international regions.”
Phil Burton commented: “Having worked closely with Mark over the last three decades, I have been extremely impressed and delighted to have witnessed the progression in his professionalism, and dedication to success, which I am sure he will carry in to his new role.”
