A new senior recruit has been named for money handling specialist Innovative Technology to cover South America.


Augusto de Andrade is the new business development manager for the region and will assist with expanding the ITL cash validation and facial recognition offerings throughout Brazil and other emerging territories. He will be responsible exclusively for ITL’s retail, kiosk and banking customers, said the UK company.

Said Mustapha Hadj-Ahmed, sales director: “Augusto will be involved in a wide range of sales activities, from formulating and executing a sales and business strategy targeted at his dedicated territory, identifying sales opportunities, generating and following up leads, visiting existing and new customers to secure additional business, grow our customer base and increase market share in the region.

"He will also support and offer technical assistance to local trading partners and attend trade shows and exhibitions around South America. Augusto will be working closely with Fernando, our local general manager in Brazil, who has been with ITL for a long time and is therefore ideally placed to give him the best possible introduction.”
