Dahua New Marketing Head Hired From Hanwha / Samsung

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jan 04, 2017

Dahua is bad at marketing.

And they are finally taking a step to correct that, hiring Janet Fenner, who joins after 6+ years at Samsung / Hanwha to head Dahua's North American marketing team.

Dahua is a tough marketing job but so too was Hanwha, as they deal with downgrading away from the Samsung brand.

In this note, we examine Dahua's historical marketing problems, how Fenner might help, and the challenges to come for Dahua.
