Veracity, the leader in connectivity and transmission solutions for IP Video and innovator in surveillance storage, has hired Andy Aitchison as its new Strategic Accounts Manager as the company accelerates its expansion. Andy will be leading Veracity’s push into burgeoning markets for its products including hospitals, prisons, education, transport, logistics, utilities and city centres.
Andy Aitchison, a well-known figure in the security market, was previously Major Accounts Manager at Sanyo. He also held senior sales positions at both Norbain and Mitsubishi Electric.
Andy Aitchison explained the move: "I’m very pleased to be joining Veracity at a time when it is set for major growth following the initial success of COLDSTORE and as adoption of HD drives customers towards upgrading their ageing CCTV systems. This is a business that really understands the technology and is continually developing innovative solutions having identified clear needs in the market. It’s also great to be working for such a successful security business based in Scotland where I’m based."
Andy Aitchison grew up in Edinburgh and relocated his family back to his home town from St Albans a few years ago.
Alastair McLeod, managing director and founder of Veracity UK Limited added: "We have already worked closely with Andy whilst he was at Sanyo and found he encapsulates that rare combination of sales brilliance and strong technical engineering capability. He is a great asset to our growing team."
