Mickey Miller, CEO of Vislink, stated: “Bill’s deep understanding of the AVDS market and his impressive sales leadership skills fit perfectly with our strategic vision for the MilGov segment, which is central to Vislink’s growth. Bill’s role will be critical in integrating our existing services with the newly acquired BMS capabilities, enhancing our offerings in the military and public safety markets and further cementing Vislink’s position in the dynamic AVDS market.”

Sweeney added: “I am honored to join Vislink and contribute to the company’s growth, especially following a year of momentum and promising wins within its core MilGov segment, including the recent transformative acquisition of BMS assets. I am eager to leverage my experience in the AVDS market to drive forward our strategic objectives and accelerate Vislink’s emergence as a force in this expanding market.”
