Videx Security has appointed a new National Sales Manager following the departure of Neil Thomas.
James Gray, who has been with the company for over a decade, becomes the firm’s National Sales Manager after Neil left the company following a 20-year career at Videx. Neil has moved out of the access control industry, relocating to Cyprus.
In his role as National Sales Manager, James is responsible for maintaining and growing Videx’s sales pipeline across the UK. He will manage and oversee the Videx team of Regional Sales Managers, Key Account Managers and Sales Estimators.
James will also play a key role in developing Videx’s existing relationships with the company’s network of distributors, wholesalers and security installers.
John Rickard, Managing Director at Videx, said: “James has been with the company for a considerable time and, as well as being highly skilled and experienced, he fully understands how Videx operates and is committed to the long-term future of the business.
“James’ tenacity and desire to drive us forward even during tumultuous times is an asset to Videx as we continue to grow the business and develop a wider range of products to a larger customer base.
“This year, we’re focused on bringing new products to market and building on our success which we’ve achieved through our in-depth knowledge of the industry and relationship-focused approach to growth.”
Prior to his new role, James was the Senior Projects Lead, responsible for managing the firm’s biggest access control and door entry projects. Because of this, James has an extensive understanding of the access control market and in-depth knowledge of Videx and the services and products it provides.
James added: “It’s great to be appointed as National Sales Manager and I am looking forward to developing our relationships with distributors and installers across the UK.
“Working closely with my team of regional sales managers and senior leadership, I’m focused on raising our profile, particularly with local authorities, to help meet the entry needs of a wide range of public sector organisations including schools, hospitals and housing developments.”
