AXIS Communications has appointed Ivan Tjahjadi (pic) as regional country manager for Asean and Indochina.
Based in Indonesia, Ivan will be spearheading all facets of the business operations and activities of Axis Communications in the region, including Malaysia, the company said in a statement.
He will particularly lead the company’s strategic development as well as sales and marketing activities in the country.
“Ivan brings with him over 20 years of solid experience in sales and marketing, general management and distribution,” said Oh Tee Lee, director of Axis Communications, South Asia Pacific.
“His solid track record managing multiple business models and establishing business relationships with partners and customers will be extremely valuable in helping us to enhance our capabilities in the region.
“We are confident that the Malaysian business will thrive under Ivan’s dynamic leadership,” he added.
Ivan has held high-level positions in large multinationals such as Compaq and Hewlett-Packard, and channels such as PT. ECS Indonesia previously.
“Malaysia is a key market for Axis Communications. I am excited to build on Axis’ success in one of the most progressive markets in the region,” he said.
“Surveillance has been identified as a crucial element for Malaysia’s public safety. The Government has recently allocated a great deal of resources to install 496 closed-circuit cameras (CCTV) in 25 local authorities to prevent street crimes in urban areas.
“As a driving force behind the shift from analogue to digital video surveillance which paves the way for a more secure, smarter and safer world, Axis will continue to offer customers the market leading quality and customer experience that they have come to expect,” he added.
