Vicon Industries, a leading manufacturer of video surveillance equipment which is rebuilding itself under the leadership of CEO Eric Fullerton, is pleased to announce that as part of its new strategic direction towards establishing a two-tier sales distribution model, Jennifer Hones has joined the company as National Distribution Program Manager.

Bret McGowan, Vicon Senior Vice President Sales, commented, “Jennifer is a natural choice for this new position, and I am confident that her experience, knowledge and leadership will successfully build and cultivate a new channel-oriented sales model that will help drive our company goals for the coming year.”
Prior to joining Vicon, Hones worked for Milestone Systems, Inc., most recently as their Knowledge Program Manager, and previously as the Technical Assistant to the Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. In these positions she researched, developed and implemented a variety of highly effective strategic projects and programmes. She graduated with a Master of Arts and BA in International Relations from Stanford University.
