Opening of Hong Kong office
MedaPhor Group plc (AIM: MED), the intelligent ultrasound software and simulation company, announces that it has opened an office in Hong Kong to facilitate the Group’s established reseller network and growing customer base in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.
The Group now has 18 active reseller partners in this region selling the ScanTrainer, HeartWorks and new BodyWorks Eve simulation portfolio into hospitals and university teaching schools.
The new Hong Kong office will support and aim to expand reseller sales, marketing and customer relations across the APAC region and especially in the growing Chinese simulation market.
The Company has appointed a local Channel and Product Support Manager, Victor Kwan, to be permanently based out of the Hong Kong office. Victor brings with him over 10 years of experience working in product marketing and management, seven of which were spent in the medical simulation industry.
Stuart Gall, Chief Executive Officer at MedaPhor, comments:
“We now have a well-established reseller channel in APAC and are looking to cement our presence in the region. With its central location and excellent transport links, our new Hong Kong office will enable us to have a full-time local presence in these important and growing markets, as we look to continue the expansion and growth in the APAC ultrasound software and simulation market.”
