HAUPPAUGE, N.Y.—Vicon Industries, Inc., a subsidiary of Cemtrex Inc. and leading designer and manufacturer of video surveillance and access control software, hardware, and components, has announced the appointment of Andronicus Turner and Jason Lloyd as Regional Sales Managers.

Vicon is expanding rapidly to address escalating demand as end-users seek a reliable source of video surveillance and access control technologies fit for today’s highly dynamic environment.

Turner will serve as Regional Sales Manager for California, Nevada, and Hawaii. He has an extensive career within the industry and a demonstrated ability to nurture strong relationships with system integrators, dealers, and end-users. Prior to Vicon, he was a Regional Sales Representative for Hikvision. Turner studied International Business at California State University, Northridge, and Global Management at the University of Phoenix for Business. 

Lloyd will serve as Regional Sales Manager for Chicago, Northern Illinois, and Wisconsin. He has over 20 years of experience and expertise working at the dealer and integrator level. Lloyd also brings an extensive technical history to the position, with a degree in Electrical Engineering and roles as Senior Design Engineer and Low Voltage Director.

The appointments of Turner and Lloyd follow several other key additions to the Vicon team. This includes Bob Germain, an industry vet who came from Hikvision to become Vicon’s Director of Hardware Management, and Rakesh Sharma, who came from Exacq to spearhead the company’s hardware engineering efforts filling the position of Director of Hardware Engineering.

Recent hires also include Leland Jacobson, who serves Vicon as Regional Sales Manager covering Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Arkansas, and Bob Kriegisch, who joined Vicon’s U.S. sales team as Regional Sales Manager covering Delaware, New Jersey, and eastern Pennsylvania.

“We are excited to continue our expansion and welcome Andronicus Turner and Jason Lloyd to the Vicon family,” said Bret McGowan, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing. “Together, they bring vast technical knowledge, passion, and dedication that will lend itself immensely to customers and the team.
