Millis has ten years’ experience in the IT and financial services sectors and will be responsible for driving sales of the company’s range of video conferencing solutions across Queensland.</p>
<p>Most recently, Millis was Education Account Manager with Videopro, Queensland's premier provider of audiovisual equipment and services to government, corporate, broadcast and education sectors.
