Dahua USA Removes Head of Marketing

Author: John Honovich, Published on Nov 06, 2017

Dahua USA's marketing and just their overall business organization has been a mess.

These guys could not sell life jackets on the Titanic.

But, earlier this year, they made a good hire and got lucky getting Janet Fenner who had run marketing at Samsung / Hanwha. Now, on their 3rd CEO / President this year (e.g., Dahua Demotes USA CEO and then Dahua USA President Out, South American President Takes Over), Fenner has now been bizarrely moved to business development from marketing.

In this note, we examine the sad saga of Dahua USA.
