Werner Geldenhuys has been appointed as our new Country Sales Manager for South Africa. With years of experience at Paxton and in the security industry, Werner will lead the team to continue providing smart yet simple to use security systems in South Africa.
Werner said: “I joined Paxton in 2013 and have seen what we have achieved in South Africa over the past 10 years. It makes me excited to see what’s coming for us in the next decade.
“I am honoured to be promoted to Country Sales Manager and continue to be part of Paxton’s journey providing our solutions in South Africa and helping people feel secure.”
Dan Drayton, Divisional Director – EMEA Sales Region, congratulates Werner on his promotion: “I am excited that Werner has stepped into the new role. He’s well-known in the industry and his knowledge of the market will add value to our customers and distributors.
“We’re looking forward to his impact with our customers, his team, and leading Paxton towards our long-term goals in the region.”
Having worked at Paxton for 10 years now, he is highly experienced with Paxton’s range of access control solutions and knowledgeable about the landscape of the security industry in South Africa.
Werner shares his vision for Paxton’s continued growth in the market: “We want to introduce Paxton’s products to as many people as possible, making the Paxton brand a household name.”
We recently opened a new Experience Centre in Johannesburg, demonstrating live our range of security systems. This shows our commitment to the market and dedication to offering smart access control, door entry, and video management solutions in South Africa.
Werner continues: “We provide free product training, a 5-year warranty, and license-free software, ensuring our customers enjoy the best possible experience with our products and systems.”
Our team’s dedication in South Africa won them their first regional award last year. They were named the Outstanding Security Equipment Manufacturer at The South Africa Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) 2023.
