Rick was most recently Regional Sales Manager for Avigilon Corporation in New Zealand and has previously held senior positions with leading security businesses including Tyco Integrated Fire and Security.
Splinter comes to Hills with more than 20 years of senior sales management and industry knowledge across a variety of highly technical industries in New Zealand. He brings a wealth of experience in new business acquisition and has an impressive track record of securing business, both in the commercial and government sectors. He will be based at Hills’ Auckland office.
General Manager of Hills New Zealand, Chris Whiting, said Splinter’s appointment would bring additional expertise to the purpose-build business and strengthened the company’s sales capacity.
“With the security landscape evolving rapidly, organisations are increasingly looking for guidance and advice on their approach to security. Rick’s experience, together with his technical knowledge, will boost Hills’ ability to provide true turn-key offerings to integrators, consultants and end users,” Whiting said.
“It’s been an exciting start to the year for Hills New Zealand. The timing of Rick’s appointment coincides with the launch of our new e-commerce platform and the refurbishment of the Hills Auckland show room – both of which are focused on creating a better customer experience.
“The Auckland trade centre now boasts a new look showroom, a new video demonstration suite, and updated training facilities for integrator sales and technical training. Customers will see improvements in our level of service, our product range and our engagement in the market,” Whiting said.
