Ergotron, the global leader in computer and video display mounting equipment, announced that Alfredo Hernandez has accepted the role of leading Ergotron’s channel sales initiatives in Mexico. Mr. Hernandez’s extensive experience in the IT channel will energize Ergotron’s expansion into the vibrant marketplace that is Mexico.

Expansion into Mexico was spearheaded by Ergotron’s Vice President of Sales, Lee Schalk, and Director of North America Channel Sales, Betty Grogan. Ms. Grogan announced the appointment of Mr. Hernandez as Ergotron’s Channel Account Manager late last week. He began work on Monday, October 1. Mr. Hernandez will work to develop relationships with distribution partners, in addition to training resellers and dealers, building Ergotron’s momentum as it moves into this new geographic market.
“We’re tremendously excited about what we bring to the Mexican market,” explained Ms. Grogan. “With Mr. Hernandez serving as Ergotron’s Channel Account Manager, we are confident we have the right foundation in place to better serve our channel partners and customers throughout Mexico.”
