Changes And Staff Additions At Visix
Gail Chiasson, North American Editor
Ed Matthews, currently CEO of Visix Inc., Norcross, Georgia, is moving this month to become chairman of the Board, while the company has also made two new hires as part of the company’s ongoing expansion and reorganization in order to meet demand for both digital signage solutions and its fast-growing services division.
The new hires are Greg Ramsey as sales engineer and Megan Heffernan as creative services coordinator.
“As both our product line and services offering grow rapidly, it’s essential that we add experienced, talented staff like Megan and Greg to both educate and engage our customers to ensure their satisfaction in the long run,” says Sean Matthews, president of Visix.
Ed Matthews is a long-time AV veteran active in the industry since 1967 who worked on the international broadcast centers for the 1996, 1998, 2000 and 2002 Olympics. He was also heavily involved with the InfoComm CTS committees over the years, and was on the original committees that created the curriculum for the CTS-I and CTS-D certification degrees. He will move from CEO to Chairman of the Board to spend more time with his family.
“For more than three decades, Ed has been involved with Visix and its predecessor Tech Electronics Inc.,” says Matthews. “In this new advisory capacity, he will continue to be involved in strategic planning, but he will also be afforded the opportunity to pursue other life endeavors.”
Ramsey will focus on helping end users understand the technical aspects and value of Visix’s offerings. He has more than 10 years of technology experience with firms like Brickstream Corporation, Compaq Computer (HP) and VC3, Inc.
Heffernan has a marketing background and has worked with The Children’s Museum of Atlanta for the last three years. She will help with project management for Visix’s booming Creative Services division, as well as focus on social media, internal communications and client outreach.
Visix designs, develops and supports a suite of browser-based digital signage products that allows users to create, manage and schedule organizational communications from anywhere and to deliver messages and media to virtually any endpoint. The company offers digital signage software, interactive wayfinding, meeting room signs, and applications for targeted messaging to desktops and portable devices.
The company is currently recruiting sales engineers, creative services application developers, regional sales managers and product application developers.
