ComNet Europe has announced the appointment of Iain Deuchars as Business Development Manager. Iain will be responsible for securing new business opportunities and strategic partnerships throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Iain comes to ComNet from KBC Networks where he served as Managing Director for the past eight years. Prior to KBC, he was the Managing Director of IFS Europe. ” I’m very pleased to be joining ComNet,” commented Iain, on his new role.” ComNet has been very aggressive since entering the market, their product development pace has been very impressive and the fact that many of the products they offer are made in the USA give us, as I am now proud to say, a very distinct advantage.” ” Iain was a formidable competitor at KBC and IFS”, stated Steve Clarke, ComNet Europe Managing Director.” We feel that the demand for ComNet products is increasing at a tremendous rate. Having Iain as part of the ComNet Europe Team will allow us to leverage his relationships throughout the EMEA and help ComNet secure more of these opportunities as they arise.”
