Hardware vendor BenQ has confirmed that regional boss Robert Dung will relocate to India. Dung will move from his current base Dubai as the vendor looks to take its in-country Indian operation to the next level, but will continue to manage the operations in the Middle East and Africa as well. Dung has been overseeing BenQ operations in both the Middle East and India for some time, based out of Dubai. According to a BenQ spokesperson in India, the move reflects BenQ’s commitment to the Indian market and the potential for rapid sales growth in the coming years. The Middle East is currently a larger market for BenQ than India. Swapna Nair, marcom manager at BenQ Middle East and Africa, said: “It is true that Robert is relocating to India and will be based there. However, he remains in charge of BenQ’s operations in the Middle East and will continue to spend a significant portion of his time working out of the Dubai office.” BenQ is also looking to strengthen its Dubai-based team and is poised to name a new product manager for its LCD TV business at the end of this month. “The new product manager will start on May 1st and LCD TVs continues to be a strategic area of focus for BenQ,” added Nair. “The candidate that we expect will take on this role has solid experience in the Middle East channel and will join us from a distributor.” BenQ is also gearing up for a significant presence at Gitex Saudi Arabia later this month alongside partner Rodana Digital. The vendor will display its range of LCD TVs alongside the very latest in digital projectors. “Saudi Arabia is an enthusiastic adopter of new technologies and is a strategic market for BenQ,” explained Dung. “Increasingly, Saudi business professionals are identifying the positive impact of mobility on their bottom line, and they are enthusiastic about its potential,” he added.
