2014-08-06 21:21:27 - AV solutions provider Verrex adds Akin Adewole to its New York based Sales team.
Verrex, the quality-driven AV solutions provider, announced that Akin Adewole has joined its Corporate Headquarters as Sales Engineer. In this crucial pre-sales support role, Akin will provide expert working-knowledge of collaboration and communication solutions in order to recommend technologies for a client’s intended functionality. Akin joins a global design-build integration and managed services sales team under the direction of Verrex Vice President of Sales, Bill Chamberlin.
“The technology alone has little value to our clients -- until it’s paired with the technical knowledge and confident skills of a sales engineer of Akin’s caliber,” said Chamberlin. “Akin will no doubt be an excellent resource for our clients in helping them envision and implement an overall solution that’s relevant to their needs. We
are pleased to add him to our team.”
Akin joins Verrex with over 22 years of versatile experience in audiovisual, networking, engineering and systems design. Most recently he was Senior Systems Design Engineer at Activu where he was responsible for interpreting project specifications and functionality into system layouts, bill of materials and project implementation documents for command and control systems. Additional career highlights include: Systems Design Engineer at HB Communications; Technical Sales Design Engineer at Crestron Electronics; Systems Design Engineer at Modern Mass Media; Mechanical Engineer at NJIT Center for Manufacturing Systems; Network Engineer at UNIFI Communications; and AV Technician at Norris Sight & Sound/Northwestern University.
Akin holds a Master’s Degree in Information Systems from New Jersey Institute of Technology and a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Northwestern University. He has also earned the Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) designation from InfoComm International.
“I very much look forward to contributing during the most critical stage of a client’s collaboration strategy,” said Akin. “Verrex’s focus on providing solutions, rather than simply selling systems, matches my own. I am excited to be part of such a dynamic and forward-thinking team.”
Akin is based out of Verrex’s Corporate & Global headquarters in Mountainside, New Jersey and can be reached at email@example.com
