Jonas Andersson, who will be joining Samsung Techwin on 14th January 2013, has worked for Axis Communications for the last 18 years in a number of senior roles including Director of Video Product Management and Video Solutions and for the last five years, Business Development Director. He has also been Chairman of the ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) Steering Committee since November 2008.
Commenting on this major new appointment, Mr Hansoo Jung, Senior Vice President of Samsung Techwin, said: “We are delighted to have been able to recruit someone of Jonas Andersson’s stature to take on this very important new role. His extensive knowledge of IP network based solutions and unrivalled strategic insight of market opportunities, will be of immense value to us as we look to build on the success that we have so far achieved. As Chairman of the ONVIF Steering Committee, Jonas has played a key role, along with other senior members of our industry in driving forward the adoption of network video in the security market and to ensure interoperability between network video products, regardless of the manufacturer. Samsung Techwin totally support these objectives. They are the basis of our Smart Security philosophy of ensuring our customers in the IP security solutions and consumer security marketplace achieve maximum value from their investment in a video surveillance solution.”
Samsung’s philosophy of delivering Smarter Security is reflected in a product portfolio which provides customers with the flexibility to choose the best solution for the job in hand. It enables customers to easily upgrade from an analogue system to an IP and network based solution in the smartest way for their business. A key objective for 2013 and beyond is to prove to installers, systems integrators, specifiers and end-users, how they can choose Samsung IP equipment and be confident that it will meet, if not exceed, their expectations. At the same time, Samsung’s range of consumer security products, which includes, for example, baby monitors and soon to be launched smart home cameras, are redefining the way people use video in their homes.
Jonas has a Master of Science Degree (Hons) in Electrical Engineering and has successfully studied for an Executive MBA in management, leadership and business administration. Commenting on his appointment, Jonas said: “Having spent the last 10 years working for one of the leading manufacturers of IP network products, I am naturally very pleased to be able to progress my career by taking on this senior role within Samsung Techwin. I am looking forward to contributing to the efforts of a very strong team of design engineers and product marketing professionals who have done such a magnificent job over recent years in introducing new products and technologies which have enabled Samsung Techwin to be positioned as a market leader.”
