CHELMSFORD, Mass. - Axis Communications on July 14 announced the opening of a new Canadian sales office and IP surveillance solution center in Mississauga, Ontario. Additionally, to maintain consistent support for its ever-growing Canadian partner and customer base, Axis has expanded its local sales team by hiring Reg Collins as regional sales manager, Western Canada, and Sophie Desjardins as Canadian account executive.

Sophie Desjardins comes to Axis with a 15-year history of inside sales and customer service experience in the IT industry with companies such as Synnex Canada. Desjardins will be based in the new Mississauga office where her main responsibility will be to work closely with and support the Canadian regional sales managers and local Axis partners.

Collins and Desjardins were two of the 64 new employees added by Axis worldwide in Q2. Both will report to country manager Robert Moore, who spearheaded the plan to open the new regional office.
