Vertex Standard prepares for portfolio expansion with new appointments

Vertex Standard, the two-way radio company owned by Motorola Solutions, has made three new UK appointments and is seeking to make another three in preparation for an expansion in its digital and analogue portfolio.

The company recently revealed that it has hired Bill Drummond (pictured right) as its EMEA marketing manager, based at Motorola Solutions’ Basingstoke office in the UK and now in his sixth week. A product manager for the EMEA region has also been hired and will join the company later this year in October. In addition, a UK channel account manager will join in August to support Vertex Standard’s channel partners.

"In our 60th Anniversary year, my focus is communicating Vertex Standard's long heritage, engineering & design excellence and product launch details to new and existing audiences through close collaboration with our authorised partners," said Drummond.

Tim Clark, director of sales, Europe and North Africa, Vertex Standard – who has also taken responsibility of Vertex Standard business, is also in the process of hiring three channel account managers for Vertex Standard across the Europe and North Africa region.

Later towards the end of this quarter Vertex Standard is planning the launch of a digital product, the EVX-S24, “a small compact, very tough and rugged radio”, comments Tim Clark. He added that additional products are expected to be launched later in the year. The company’s most recent product the EVX-261, an entry-level digital radio, was launched last month.
