Integrated security manufacturer TDSi has appointed Phil Tennent as its new international business development director. With over 30 years’ in sales and international sales management, Tennent will head up TDSi’s continued expansion in overseas markets through its network of professional partners. 

Tennent began his career in the security industry in the early 1990s with Norbain Electronics (as it was then known) as a field engineer and then field sales. He was introduced to TDSi in the mid-1990s when the company appointed Norbain as a distributor. He then joined NICE Systems before being approached by Honeywell Security to head up its sales team for the UK and Europe video division. 

As a further venture, Tennent and his wife set up Marsolutions Language services for the technical sector as a family-run business before joining Pelco by Schneider Electric, with varied roles including director of distribution and strategic accounts, EMEA, and finishing as regional sales director, Northern Europe.

John Davies, managing director of TDSi commented, “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Phil to the senior TDSi team. With a highly impressive track record of sales and business development, he is the perfect person to lead TDSi’s continued international growth at this exciting time as we embrace the considerable opportunities worldwide for growth following the pandemic.”
