Even for Dahua, this is surprising.
Dahua UK Sales Director Steve Norman has posted:
[Update: he has since deleted that post.]
Though he claims to 'refuse to be drawn into any arguments', he had an argument with an ex-Dahua employee Gary Hopkins on an IPVM LinkedIn thread earlier this week:
While the ex-Dahua employee accused him of money being his ethic, Dahua UK's sales director rejoined that the ex-Dahua employee opinions were 'based in a bottle'. Yikes.
Obviously unprofessional. And it, unfortunately, is not an outlier. In matters larger and small, Dahua overseas is poorly run. Dahua should thank Xi Jinping for the PRC's barriers against foreign competitors. Without huge money coming from their home market (e.g., Dahua's making hundreds of millions surveilling the suppressed Uighur minorities), Dahua would be incapable of spending so much money to make such mistakes overseas.
[Note: Norman deleted his 'based in a bottle' comment after IPVM published this.]
