Firetide grabs VP of sales from Anixter's ranks

Wireless solutions company Firetide has snagged Anixter's Security Solutions Senior Vice President Michael Duncan, and is bringing Duncan aboard as Firetide's vice president of sales for the Americas. Duncan has spent six years leading Anixter security channel sales, and was credited with growing the distributor's security sales by 20 fold.

Firetide CEO Bo Larsson said, "He has the experience and relationships to help us continue to drive revenue growth in our core municipal infrastructure market and help us aggressively expand our available market opportunities in transportation, telecommunications and wireless LANs among others."

Duncan said that one of his primary goals for Firetide, whose solutions are often used in city surveillance camera systems, is to grow the company's reseller channel.
