JiShun Mei and Joe Khodeir lead APAC sales management team
Harris Broadcast has divided its APAC sales management team into North APAC and South APAC sub-regions to improve customer intimacy and speed to market. JiShun Mei will now act as vice president of sales for all product lines in the newly created North APAC region, while Joe Khodeir has been appointed vice president of sales for all product lines in South APAC.
The structure change brings a new focus and accelerates development of growth opportunities in the region. Each will have specific growth targets and opportunities across the entire Harris Broadcast portfolio, creating a more agile and intimate management team for customers and the channel.
JiShun and Joe will report directly to Richard Scott, senior vice president, global sales and services. The North APAC region will, with immediate effect, cover Greater China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea and Japan. JiShun will continue to be based in the Harris Broadcast Shanghai office. The South APAC team will cover all ASEAN countries, Australia and New Zealand, and Joe will continue to be based in the Harris Broadcast Sydney office.
“Joe and JiShun both have a track record of success and strong leadership over many years in the region,” said Scott. “Both have demonstrated outstanding levels of leadership and customer intimacy and are indeed well respected executives in the region. Their skills and experience are highly complementary and I am confident that our business will thrive under their leadership.”
In addition to their roles leading the regional sales managers, JiShun and Joe will also serve as leaders for the technical pre-sales teams, which are shared across the newly created sub-regions.
