This is bad for Arecont. This guy is a brilliant engineer!

Hard to tell with these engineers. Some are like artists, just want to create and build for its own sake, without a demonstrated need, marketability or profitability as part of the equation. Other times they can be great guys with great ideas, sick of OPS and sales having them cook up another vanilla cost competitive offeriing just to compete in a given segment.
"left to pursue other business interests" is one of my favorite business euphemisms...
because it says nothing at all. :)
I have come to truely enjoy the use of Arecont cameras at our facility, hope that Arecont stays strong and continues to deliver what the people are looking for.
I have grown to really like there versatility. I've performed many demos for clients with great results and happy customers. I hope this doesn't cause too many problems
Well the position is posted on their careers page.
May be the new VP will say hey a reset button what a novel thought!!!!
Update March 2014, Arecont has selected Sri Rama Prasanna Pavani. A researcher with a strong academic background, he has limited work experience and none in the surveillance industry. He evidently had been working at Arecont for a short period of time prior to his promotion to VP of Engineering.
Talk around the industry was that the 'several strong candidates' Arecont said they were pursuing was not very successful. As one noted, taking the job would be like 'marrying into the Kardashians.'
How is this scenario different then when lenel was gobbling up market share. Same type of engineering driven approach. Maybe they want to take a breather and let the sales and marketing channel catch up.
Update, the replacement VP of Engineering is gone already as well.
