Axios Expands East with Moscow Opening
Axios Systems has been active in Russia for some time and has built strong relationships with major players in the region, including partnerships with two of the largest systems integrators, Croc and LANIT. Late in 2007 it secured its first customer M-Video, Russia’s largest Household Electrical Retailer
Spearheading plans will be Heerco Groenewegen, who takes on a new role as Sales Manager focussed specifically on Russia. Heerco will work with Hanspeter Thueler, who recently joined Axios, from BMC Software to take on overall sales responsibility for the Eastern European & Russian Markets. Together they will drive the company’s continued success in this region.
Tasos Symeonides, CEO at Axios Systems, comments, “Having a presence on the ground in Russia is the next logical step of our development in this region. We already have a team of Russian nationals on the Axios payroll. Our base in the centre of Moscow further demonstrates our commitment to this market and to our strategic partners in this region. Eastern Europe and Russia will be major growth markets for us in the next few years. The move further strengthens Axios’ global delivery capability and reinforces our position as an international leader in ITIL® based Software and IT Best Practice.
