Victor Bared, who has mobile security and wholesale experience with Electrolux, has joined the company as field market manager. He is based in the San Antonio area and will lead the development of the Texas market in all Mega market categories.
By reducing the territory sizes in our Southeast U.S. market, we will have more touches with our dealers and deliver even better support for business growth," said Mega Group USA President Rick Bellows. "Assigning a specific manager to Texas will help us better manage the Southwest U.S and give us more manpower in the large, important state of Texas. We look forward to great representation of Mega with Victor Bared.

Burris is a graduate of Harding University with a degree in marketing and has experience in ambassador sales with Best Buy and business development experience in the digital signage industry.
