Ridgefield Park, N.J.-based Samsung Techwin’s North American sales force rang in the new year in Memphis, Tenn., with a kick-off meeting co-hosted by ScanSource, Samsung’s “Distributor of the Year.” After a Jan. 16 tour of ScanSource’s warehouse facility, the Samsung sales and marketing leadership team and manufacturer’s representatives settled in to hear the latest outlook for 2012 from Samsung, the global supplier of video surveillance and security.

The kick-off meeting then focused on Samsung’s IP product range, new marketing initiatives for 2012, and additions to the expanding customer service and technical support programs.

The Samsung kick-off meeting also honored Mark Cohee, product manager, ScanSource, who was awarded the light-hearted (and heart-felt) designation of “Dr. of Distributology.” 

After the meeting, the first Samsung IP Institute (SIPI) training sessions were held, launching a nationwide series of SIPI two-day training events planned throughout the United States and Canada in 2012 covering IP video, network design and integration skills.
