Netwatch Appoints Director Sales
Tuesday, 01 November 2011
CCTV security specialist Netwatch has appointed David McCarthy as its Director of Sales, with the objective of growing and managing Netwatch operations in the United Kingdom.
With an impressive background in sales and marketing McCarthy brings a fresh approach to the company's sales strategy.
Niall Kelly, Founder and Technical Director of Netwatch, said: "We're extremely proud to have David on board as the latest addition to our team. He is an exciting employee and brings a wealth of experience to the role.
"David has extensive experience of driving growth in entrepreneurial technology-based managed services businesses and we are delighted that he has chosen to join us."
McCarthy's previous roles include Director and General Manager of The Neo Group, an Australian private equity backed technology and manufacturing company, where he established and managed European operations, growing revenues from zero to £7m in six years.
He was also MD and Sales Director of early stage venture capital backed managed technology services company, I Way Ltd, where he built the business from £1.5m to £15.2m in three years through organic growth, before leading the company to £31m through acquisition and integration.
McCarthy said he was delighted and honoured to accept his new role at Netwatch. He commented: "I'm very happy to be here, and was attracted to the company's entrepreneurial outlook style and culture. The people who work at Netwatch have a very success orientated frame-of-mind and that is a very appealing characteristic.
"Netwatch's service and technology proposition is a standout feature - the company's aim is to proactively prevent crime, as opposed to just recording it, and that is something I am very much looking forward to being involved in.
"My aim here at Netwatch is to mirror the company's success in Ireland in the UK - ensuring it is recognised as the number one provider of proactive managed security services. I look forward to the challenge."
