Sepura announces the appointment of John Drewnicki as Accessories Product Manager.

With over ten years' dedicated accessory development experience, John joins Sepura from audio visual accessory manufacturer Commtel where he was Global Product Innovation Manager. At Commtel John managed the development of a wide range of high-volume commercial and consumer accessories, including a wide portfolio of patented products. Prior to this John was Head of International Product Development at the UK/China manufacturing consultancy Polar Creative LLP, bringing new electronic goods to market for major retailers. John has a Masters degree from Cambridge University and speaks fluent German.

Steve Barber, Head of Product Strategy for Sepura, commented: "The PMR accessories market has developed considerably in the last few years, acquiring a strong strategic importance for all equipment manufacturers. In line with this trend we have decided to expand our product team and welcome John who has been selected to help us maximise this opportunity and spearhead our work in this field".

Barber added: "The strategic development of accessories can yield rapid results compared to terminal development. The time to market is quicker, the costs of internalising the intellectual property are reduced and the gap between conception and customer delivery is also reduced. John's appointment will enable us to expand our already compelling portfolio and deliver accessories of the highest quality to our customers".
