New hire to develop European market for D-Link intelligent networking and security solutions.
In order to drive further demand for its network solutions for the enterprise market, D-Link has announced a senior appointment to its European management team. Dave Smith joins D-Link Europe as Vice President, Business Solutions. Targeting existing and emerging markets, Smith will work closely with D-Link's business solutions teams across eastern and western Europe to drive further adoption of D-Link's business solutions for corporate customers. Smith's appointment is effective immediately, and he will be based at D-Link's European Headquarters in London.

Prior to joining D-Link, Smith was Senior VP Marketing for Swyx Solutions, where he led Swyx's corporate and technology marketing functions on a world-wide basis. During his period at Swyx, Smith was instrumental in shaping the marketing strategy and execution that led to Swyx tripling its EMEA business within a two year period, and attaining market-leader position for its SME segment in IP Telephony.

The company's powerful business solutions, such as its xStack range of switches and NetDefend security solutions, facilitate the deployment of an enterprise-wise intelligent network infrastructure designed to deliver improved operational efficiency at a lower cost. With a broad portfolio of industry-respected networking solutions, D-Link is in a strong position to aggressively target the business market across Europe."
