Based in the Netherlands, he will focus on increasing "sales-driven activities" for Barix worldwide.
Van der Meijs will also call on his experience of OEM initiatives to increase brand recognition of Barix Audio over IP technology, and develop new applications for existing Barix products.
Van der Meijs told II: "As Barix is a data transportation business, it's the objective for [us] to leverage the existing network (internet) infrastructure for additional functionality. This can be data, like I/O, audio, voice etc. With our existing products we offer a wide spread of solutions for I/O, audio and voice over networks. My personal objective is to offer as much network functionality as possible."
"Marcel's extensive experience in OEM business development and sales team management made him the ideal candidate for this new position within Barix," added Johannes G Rietschel, CEO and founder of Barix. "He will ensure that our current distribution model prospers and grows through enhanced focus on global sales. In addition, Marcel will work proactively with new customers who wish to move away from box products and into OEM development. The key is to ensure that Barix brand recognition remains strong in our key markets while we grow into new markets. We are very pleased to announce the addition of Marcel to the Barix team."
