Honeywell, a global software-industrial company, has appointed Fahmi Jabri as its business leader for commercial security in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa (META).
Jabri’s new role will see him grow Honeywell’s security business and drive greater customer focus, said a statement.
He is tasked with reinforcing Honeywell’s position as a key player in the small and medium business (SMB) segment, the high-end CCTV market, and the access control and commercial intrusion business for Honeywell, it said.
He will also advance the organisation’s portfolio of commercial security hardware and software solutions for connected buildings in the region, leveraging advances in analytics, big data, cloud and Internet of Things (IoT) technology, it added.
Prior to this role, Jabri was strategy and marketing director of security and fire, for the Middle East, Russia, Turkey and Africa. He has been in the building technologies’ industry for more than 17 years, and joined Honeywell in April 2015.
Mick Goodfellow, general manager, Honeywell commercial security, Europe, Middle East, and Africa, said: “As a leader in the commercial security sector, we are well positioned to help organisations become safer and more secure, while meeting increasingly stringent government safety and security regulations.”
“Jabri will have an important part to play in helping our customers solve critical business issues by leveraging connected offerings in the security field, and in championing the extensive benefits of our technology in increasing insight and control across a facility,” he added.
Commenting on his new position, Jabri said: “Honeywell has some of the most advanced solutions in the commercial security industry, comprising class-leading software platforms, access control, intrusion detection and CCTV systems.”
“We look forward to working with our partners and customers to add greater value to their operations, and to help them interpret and use the huge and growing volumes of data being generated by connected buildings and security systems,” he added.
