Will lead the sales, deployment, and installation of Remark's AI-powered Smart Safety Platform ("SSP") and Smart Sentry Products in the Latin American region including Mexico and South America
LAS VEGAS, Feb. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Remark Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: MARK), a diversified global technology company with the leading artificial intelligence ("AI") powered computer vision solutions, today announced that Omar Castro had joined the company as Director of Latin American Sales and Business Development, where he is leading the sales, deployment, and installation of Remark's Smart Safety Platform and Smart Sentry Products among the many clients he has successfully worked with in the airport, mining, public safety, retail, and transportation sectors.
Omar brings the rare twin skills of technical prowess and business development. As a software developer and later as a sales engineer for Trueface, a leading computer vision security company that was acquired by Pangiam, a security technology firm founded by the former Head of Homeland Security, Omar quickly worked his way up to lead Latin American sales and business development, working with airports and other clients in the transportation sector.
"After spending the past five years building the Latin American business for Pangiam, I was asked by our clients in the airport, mining, public safety, retail, and transportation sectors to find a real-time AI-powered solution that can provide situational alerts when incidents occurred, which is preventative, rather than waiting for post-incident forensic investigation data after the fact with damage has already been done," says Omar Castro. "With the recent riots and unrest spreading throughout Mexico and Latin America, Remark's solutions are timely and eagerly awaited as an extra layer of preventative security for our customers in the airport, mining, public safety, retail and transportation industries."
"We are excited to enter the Latin American markets with the hiring of Omar Castro, whose track record in building the Latin American business for Pangium and extensive industry relationships will benefit both Remark and the customers we are servicing in the hospitality, public security and retail sectors," says Kai-Shing Tao, Chief Executive Officer of Remark Holdings. "Omar has developed the proven trust to successfully expand our customer base to the Latin American region by leveraging his bilingual skills and industry relationships.
