Securonix has seen several high-profile appointments in the past several weeks. Chief Revenue Officer Scott Sampson is one of them. Sampson is in charge of expanding the business’s worldwide sales division in this capacity. To support the company’s growth through partnerships and alliances, the Texas-based business recently appointed Mark Stevens as vice president of strategic alliances.
