Arshad, Paxton’s new Middle Eastern Regional Sales Manager, has nearly 30 years of experience in the security field, working for many leading brands in the Middle East. This includes 14 years at Bosch, where he was the Regional Sales Head. Arshad said: “I have worked with major brands across the Middle East including Gallagher, Honeywell and Johnson Controls. I was actually an installer of Paxton systems in one of my previous roles, so I have a great belief in the products we manufacture.”

Alongside Arshad, Paxton welcomes Habib Ahmed, as Regional Sales Executive for the UAE. Habib brings with him over 10 years of experience within the industry, having worked in the UAE, and at a UK based company called AFS Vision UK. Habib said: “In my 10 years of working in security I have gained fantastic knowledge of the sector, working with a number of key players such as Honeywell, Samsung Bosch and Hikvision.”

Both Habib and Arshad will be working to increase brand awareness in the region and are excited about increasing Paxton’s market share in the Middle East. Arshad continued: “We are looking forward to extremely exciting times for Paxton in the coming months and years, with both Habib and I in talks with a number of large-scale projects within both the private and public sectors.”

Dan Drayton, International Sales Manager for Paxton, is looking forward to the challenge that the company’s growth in the region represents. He said: “We are really excited by the new team we have recruited in the Middle East. Both Arshad and Habib are well known and respected in the industry, and we look forward to them building the Paxton brand in the years to come.  As the Paxton product range continues to grow across access control and video surveillance platforms, our customers can expect a world-class sales and marketing presence from Paxton in the Middle East.”
