NEC Display Solutions Europe has promoted Stephen Wair to head up its EMEA business for control rooms.
In his new role, Wair will take responsibility for the sector, with particular focus on transportation, energy, security and critical infrastructure. Wair joined the NEC UK sales team in November 2018 as end user account manager. He brought with him a wealth of experience in complex control room environments gained during 15 years at Barco.
“I am looking forward to developing closer relationships with major customers, alliance partners and industry bodies in the control room industry,” said Wair. “Through greater collaboration we can work to steer future technology developments to directly meet the needs of the end user. Furthermore, our customers will benefit from the added-value that NEC can offer through implementation strategies and methods to ensure our technologies are fully utilised.”
Ian Gobey, general manager for NEC Display Solutions UK, commented: “The control room and surveillance market is likely to undergo significant changes in the coming years as the benefits of new display and process technologies become available to this sector. Stephen has demonstrated high-level knowledge and dedicated customer support and I am delighted that our wider European sales teams will also benefit from his expertise.”
