Kinly reappoints Johnson as MD
July 27, 2022
Kinly, an AV systems integrator and remote collaboration service provider, has announced the reappointment of Vel Johnson as its managing director for the US.
With a career spanning more than 40 years, Johnson has held senior leadership positions in some of the world’s leading technology companies. Johnson returns as Kinly’s US MD, having originally relinquished the position in December 2021 as part of his semi-retirement plans, after three years.
Based in Kinly’s Cedar Knolls (NJ) corporate office, Johnson said he was inspired to return to Kinly following positive discussions with newly appointed CEO, Tom Martin, who revealed his ambitious growth and expansion plans for the company in the US market.
Martin commented: “With over 20 years of experience and supporting more than 2,500 clients, Kinly is a recognised and trusted global provider of fully tailored AV and video collaboration services and support. We have identified opportunities in the US market and under Vel’s leadership, I have no doubt those opportunities and our ambitions as a company can be fulfilled. I’m delighted to welcome Vel back to the Kinly family.”
Johnson added: “I am delighted to return to Kinly and to be entrusted by Tom to help guide this already burgeoning business on a new more deeply aligned journey to achieve even bigger and greater things in the US market. I was enjoying my retirement but after the call from Tom, the opportunity to be part of something so special, was simply too good to turn down. I feel determined and excited by what the future holds for my team and the company as whole.”
