APCON, a leading provider of intelligent network monitoring and security solutions, today announced the appointment of Karen Thomas to director of corporate communications. This newly created role, based at APCON’s regional center in Plano, Texas, is part of the company’s ambitious growth plan and expansion of its executive team.
“We are pleased to appoint Karen as our first director of corporate communications. She has a wealth of experience in communications, and her leadership ability will be invaluable in driving APCON’s engagement with external and internal audiences,” said Richard Rauch, president and CEO of APCON. “Karen has the relevant international experience to support the company’s successful growth into Europe and Asia.”
As a member of APCON’s executive team, Thomas is charged with overseeing the company’s global media relations, analyst relations, brand management, internal and executive communications, and digital and social media platforms. Working closely with the executive and marketing teams, Thomas will provide strategic guidance to enhance APCON’s marketing programs to grow the company’s worldwide presence.
