The new team includes Bryan Bradley, entertainment SBU; Kevin Morrison, enterprise SBU; and Mark Ureda, products SBU. The team will officially move into their new roles on October 1, 2015, with the company saying this move "positions the division for continued growth and innovation in its 2016 fiscal year."

"Bryan, Kevin, and Mark are the ideal leaders for our new customer-centric organizational model," said Augsburger.

Morrison has a track record of achievement with double digit growth and exceeding his sales targets with his teams in the past five years. He also brings a wealth of global leadership experience to this role. In addition to his current global sales leader role for the video and control SBU, Morrison was CEO of Endeleo for more than three years and president of CCC USA Inc. for eight years.
