Defendec Welcomes Taavi Hiltunen as Sales and Marketing Director June 01, 2011


Defendec is pleased to announce the addition of Taavi Hiltunen to the company’s business development team as the Sales and Marketing Director. Hiltunen will be responsible for global sales and strategic marketing.

Hiltunen will assume existing client accounts and will start growing new relationships with potential business partners and clients. He has extensive experience in business development in several high-tech companies including leading an international high-tech company in Finland. Taavi has decades of experience in B2B sales and strategic management. 


I am excited to join Defendec's international team, and I am happy to take over the role of international sales. My goal is to focus on sales of the Smartdec monitoring system and to extend the reach of Defendec’s wireless sensor networking system into new business areas,” states Hiltunen commenting on his new position.


Defendec’s CEO, Jaanus Tamm, who was previously responsible for sales, now will focus more on the overall management and growth of the company.


"Defendec is a rapidly growing company and this growing process necessitates hiring new employees especially in the area of business development as well as other technical positions,” comments Tamm on Defendec's growth.


" It took us a long time to fill this position because it is difficult to find someone who has the right balance of military and technology knowledge as well as business development expertise,” says Tamm."


Taavi Hiltunen starts his new position on June 1, 2011.


Defendec is an innovative technology company that develops surveillance systems for border security and critical infrastructure protection in remote areas worldwide.
