IDEAL Industries has named Richard Jones as the company’s new Director of Sales & Marketing, Networks US.
In this new role, Jones will direct the sales and marketing functions of the division in the handheld testing device and installation tools markets—areas that IDEAL says are expanding rapidly.
Prior to joining IDEAL, Jones served as the head of Datacom Standards Consutling. Before that, he spent 18 years at Chatsworth Products, Inc., a voice, data, and security products manufacturer. According to a company news release, “During his tenure [at Chatsworth Products], he served in multiple positions, but most notably, he led the sales marketing efforts as the company grew sales tenfold over a 10 year period.”
“We are very excited to have Rich join our team as National Sales Manager as we scale our business unit to address an impressive market response to handheld test and measurement product lines,” said Jason Butchko, vice president and general manager of Networks Division. “Rich is an industry veteran and proven business leader, who, throughout his career, has exhibited the ability to develop new distribution channels and manage accelerated growth.”Tagged with tED
