CHELMSFORD, Mass. -- November 4, 2013
Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, today announced that
security industry veteran Geoffrey Bauer has joined the company as Program
Manager for the North American Architecture & Engineering (A&E) Program.
Bauer brings to Axis more than 20 years of experience working for strategic
integrators and manufacturers in the security industry. In this new role he
will manage Axis programs for the architectural, engineering and professional
security consultant communities, who design and specify IP-based security
systems. Bauer will also serve as a technical liaison and help bring the
program’s outstanding support tools – such as AXIS Design Tool, Axis Camera
Families for Autodesk® Revit® and Axis Coverage Shapes for Microsoft® Visio® –
to A&E Program members.
Geoffrey Bauer has earned several prestigious industry designations, including
ASIS International Physical Security Professional (PSP), Cisco Certified Entry
Networking Technician (CCENT), Cisco Certified Network Associate Routing &
Switching (CCNA) and Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA).
“I’ve been privileged to serve the A&E community for many years as we face the
challenges of transitioning from analog video to the digital age. I look
forward to the opportunity to manage an A&E program with an organization that
is at the forefront of open, IP-based solutions,” said Geoffrey Bauer. “Axis
is dedicated to the long-term vision of the A&E community and will continue to
deliver industry-leading design tools and provide a collaborative atmosphere
for designing solutions.”
“The success of any security system begins with its design, so Axis founded
its A&E Program to ensure that professionals designing and specifying systems
have the training and tools needed for system success,” said Fredrik Nilsson,
general manager, Axis Communications, Inc. “With the addition of Geoff, his
industry experience and know-how, Axis will continue to strengthen the program
and provide this invaluable resource for independent professionals as we share
the common goal of designing and implementing the best IP video solutions that
make the world a smarter, safer place.”
Prior to joining Axis, Bauer successfully managed A&E programs for Pelco by
Schneider Electric in both regional and senior management positions. Before
that he worked as an application engineer and national accounts engineer for
two prominent integrator companies. Bauer earned his B.S. in Electrical
Engineering Technology from LeTourneau University. He is based in Illinois and
will report the North American headquarters in Chelmsford, Mass.
