MONROEVILLE, Pa., June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Compunetix, Inc., announced that Mario Rimini, the former VP and Sales Director for Aethra Videocommunication S.p.A., has joined Compunetix to lead the Global Sales and Marketing efforts of its Video Systems Division.

Mario fits this bill perfectly," stated Jim Klueber, the Division Manager for the Compunetix Video Systems Division.

Dr. Giorgio Coraluppi, Compunetix President and CEO, further added, "We spent months searching and interviewing for the right candidate for this position.

Compunetix is proud to have Mario Rimini join our management team."

When asked why he was willing to make a major life change by joining Compunetix and moving to the United States, Mario commented, "I had been looking for an opportunity to be a key player in a business where I could make an impact on a wide array of sales and marketing strategies, based on knowledge developed in over 15 years of professional endeavor in this industry. Compunetix has provided me with a unique combination of an organization with a solid technology leadership position in the hardware-based Unified Collaboration (UC) industry and the exciting spirit and challenges of a fast-paced start-up group ready to attack new markets."
