Communications has appointed John Meyers as APAC Sales Manager. This new role sees the company’s expansion with the addition of a dedicated Manager for the APAC region; supporting the business’s growth in this area.
John brings over 30 years of experience in the Asia-Pacific market to the business and through his vast satcom experience, enhances ViaLite’s ‘experts in RF over fiber’ offering.
John’s experience within the industry has allowed him to develop closer working relationships with a number of satellite operators, cellular network operators and government entities. This experience and these relationships will prove an asset in his management and support of the expanding ViaLite APAC distributor network.
In line with ViaLite’s push into the region, the distributor network was expanded in 2019 and the company also began exhibiting at CommunicAsia last year; part of the leading APAC exhibition: ConnecTechAsia.
John said: “It is very exciting to join the ViaLite organization, with its diverse customer-base ranging from SME’s to blue chip organizations. The company has been able to accomplish remarkable results in the RF over fiber market and its technologically differentiated products have been gaining interest in the Asia-Pacific region, where I have been based for over two decades.
“I am keen to build up our APAC channel partner network at a time when some vendors are cutting back theirs.”
John initially began his career as a software engineer in the United States before moving into the APAC satellite communications market. After joining Gilat Satellite Networks in 1997, John then re-located to Bangkok, Thailand, and assisted in developing a regional sales and technical support presence.
