July 2, 2020 – NexTech AR Solutions, a provider of augmented reality solutions for eCommerce, learning applications, and AR-enhanced video conferencing and virtual events, has announced that it has hired Arnaud Amet as Director of Sales for Europe. Amet will lead the company’s new European division from his location in Paris, France, as NexTech expands its geographic footprint.
According to NexTech, Amet has a background of regional and global sales and marketing roles at Microsoft, where he worked for over a decade ending in 2015. He also has experience with his own startup in sales and marketing of AR/VR to large brands, partnering with Facebook, Huawei and Microsoft.
Amet commented: “I am super excited to embark on my next journey with NexTechAR! NexTechAR has taken an edge in the race with the combination of 3D production services and more recently programmatic advertising display capabilities. They have figured out how to make AR simple, affordable, and scalable. Additionally, if we just look at the 3D Advertising business they bring to the market the next golden egg: brands and ad sales agencies”.
He continued, “NexTechAR has lifted technical and usability barriers. They are in position to offer and deliver end-to-end campaigns, from a 3D/AR online ad to a product page ‘ARitized’ interaction. This is a game changer in the industry, and a marketer’s dream. I’m excited to introduce NexTech to my extensive database of global brands, agencies and partners in France, and throughout Europe. We are just at the beginning of a great story!”
Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech said of the appointment: “We are excited to have someone as experienced and connected as Arnaud join our growing team and lead our new European division. I’m confident that Arnaud will hit the ground running, building and quickly growing our revenue in 2020 and beyond. The opportunity for our company to take the lead position in Europe is enormous and with Arnaud’s deep experience selling to tech titans like Microsoft, Samsung, Asus, Sony, Fujitsu and Toshiba I feel very confident in our future success in landing significant new business from Europe.”
