|Embedded Computing Design|
November 28th 2016 – OpenSystems Media (OSM), the leading media outlet for engineers working on Embedded, IoT, Industrial, and Military applications, today the opening of an office in the U.K. Simultaneously, OSM announced the reassignment of Rory Dear to the role of Business Development Manager for EMEA, to further the company’s expansion in Europe. His responsibilities include expanding the involvement of European vendors in their blogging, PR, content, and media services and expanding their presence at Pan-European embedded, IoT, military, and M2M events. Furthermore, boosting the popular bi-monthly Embedded E-newsletter with more content from our growing community
Beyond this, Rory will work with vendors to develop new products, custom content, and services targeted specifically at the European electronics markets, using the technical expertise gained over the past five years on the front line of European embedded editorial coverage. The expansion will encompass “non-traditional” embedded vendors, now well within the embedded ecosystem via the revolution of IoT, including the industrial sector.
“Rory has been a valuable asset to OpenSystems Media. We’re pleased to transition him from editorial coverage to lead our business developments efforts in Europe,” states Patrick Hopper, Publisher of OpenSystems Media. “His keen business sense makes him a perfect option to discuss how to better engage with our engineering community in EMEA.”
In addressing this change, Rory stated, “I look forward to this new challenge of employing my primary skillset to achieve OpenSystems Media’s European and expansion goals, moving toward true globalization. This move effectively heralds the arrival of a European office, increasing the OSM global operation. Business strategies in Europe can be different, so being on the ground here gives us a clear leg up. I look forward to working with existing and new products and services to encompass those differences for mutual benefit.”
