Kevin Taylor is the segment development manager for smart cities at Axis Communications. In this capacity, he is responsible for developing strategies and building channel relationships to expand Axis’ presence as a thought leader and facilitator in the rapidly emerging smart cities space in North America.
Kevin has more than 18 years of experience building market share in the low voltage and physical security industry. His reputation as an educator and as a bridge builder—helping organizations understand technology and how to best apply it systematically to meet their goals, and fostering inter- and intradepartmental and organizational relationships—uniquely qualify him to understand the challenges and the shared benefits for metropolitan areas to develop their infrastructure, technologies, and policies in the goal of becoming a smart city.
Prior to joining Axis in 2014, Kevin held multiple positions of increasing responsibility within the Security Strategic Business Unit of Honeywell International. He previously served as the associate director for the state of Georgia low voltage association, is a member of the American Society for Industrial Security, and currently serves as co-chair of the Smart Utilities Working Group of the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association.
