Artel’s New Leader For Channels and Key Accounts


Some six weeks after joining Artel Video Systems, Franz Semprun is settling in to his role as Director of Channels and Key Accounts.

Semprun joins Artel after serving as a Channel Sales Manager at Oracle. In this role, he was instrumental in developing new revenue streams for the Communications Global Business Unit, resulting in business growth in the Latin America Division.

Before that, Semprun held such sales and technical manager roles as that of Director of Product Marketing and Sales Engineer at Genband. There, he spearheaded the development of the Central America/Latin America sales region and educational accounts in the U.S. 

“We are excited to add Franz to Artel’s sales team,” said Artel President/CEO Mike Rizzo. “His proactive approach and success in maximizing revenue and cultivating best-in-class customer relations are critical to meeting the needs of new and existing customers worldwide as Artel continues to grow. In this newly created position, Franz’s proven commitment to excellence and technical expertise will play a powerful role in our continued success — developing new opportunities and supporting channel partners and key accounts in the U.S., Canada, and Latin America regions.”
