CNL appoints new chairman

Following on their recent entry into the North American market, IP security solutions manufacturer CNL announced earlier this month that it has named industry veteran Graham Wallis as its new chairman.

Wallis has an extensive background in the U.S. security market, having served as president of both Dedicated Micros and Javelin Systems. CNL announced its entry into the US market earlier this year with the appointment of Matt Kushner as president.

In a prepared statement, CNL CEO Keith Bloodworth said that the timing of bringing Wallis in now is “exactly right,” being that the company has several new large projects taking place in the U.S. He added that the move “reinforces” the company’s strategic direction and commitment to the U.S. market.
