Carousel Industries Recruits Industry Veteran Christopher Smeaton to Lead Its New Dallas Regional Office

Former AVI/SPL Sales Director Will Lead Sales and Technical Teams in Texas Region as Carousel Looks to Expand Its National Geographic Footprint

EXETER, RI--(Marketwire - Mar 12, 2012) - Carousel Industries, a leader in data networking and converged communications, announced that it has hired industry sales veteran and former AVI/SPL executive Christopher Smeaton as sales director to lead its new regional office located in Dallas, Texas. The new office location will serve to strengthen and expand Carousel's existing client base in Texas, while complementing the company's overall geographic presence in the United States.

"Christopher is a seasoned executive with a track record in driving and managing growth," said James Marsh senior vice president, Carousel Industries. "He will be responsible for building our sales and technical teams in Dallas to support new opportunities, while supporting existing clients and managing operational activities in the central region."

Prior to joining Carousel, Smeaton was director of sales for the A/V integrator AVI/SPL, where he was responsible for leading high-end sales initiatives and managing day-to-day account activities. As a seasoned executive with proven expertise in building C-level relationships, he will play a fundamental role in growing Carousel's presence in the Texas region while strengthening its foothold in the central United States.

By opening an office in Texas, a region that has been a U.S. growth market despite an uncertain economic climate, Carousel establishes a geographic hub in the central United States that will help facilitate the expansion of its nationwide sales and technical force. Under the direction of Smeaton, Carousel will develop its existing Texas client base while pursuing other opportunities in state and local government, education, healthcare and other areas.

"I am excited to join a leading integrator that has demonstrated steadfast, predictable growth on a year over year basis," commented Smeaton. "As sales director for the Texas region, I look forward to leveraging Carousel's extensive resources to develop new business in Texas and beyond."
