Kingston bangs in record sales while competitors falter

While slow and timid interviews are the stuff of weary insomniacs, there’s nothing KitGuru likes more than an experienced senior executive that’s prepared to tell it like it is. To help stir the spirits, Kingston kindly lent us Bernd Dombrowsky. And we are very greatful that they have. You’ll soon see what we mean.

Bernd Dombrowsky has been with Kingston for almost 15 years and his business card claims he is now busy directing sales across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. What we really like about this chap is his complete willingness to GITR (Get In The Ring) and tell it like it is. Expertise, honesty and a complete lack of fear? We like that. We like that a lot!

While Dombrowsky is a great name, we’re going to break with convention for this interview, be much more chummy and go with Bernd.

We saw one company getting NASDAQ listed earlier this year and losing 50% of their market capitalisation since then. That’s amazingly poor in a year that will set new records for Kingston Technology’s performance“, said Bernd. “If I look at the financials of some competitors who have big plans, I wonder who will risk their money in these initial public offerings“.

Nice kick off Bernd.

We’ll come back to that thought in more depth later!

Bernd Dombrowsky competitive? Only slightly!

Bernd questions the wisdom of investing in any memory company that doesn’t have rock solid credentials and a serious plan.

When reading a strong statement like that, you need to remember just how big Kingston is.

Looking at last year’s sales figures, Kingston appears to be around 12 times bigger than Corsair and around 150 times bigger than Geil.

Serious stuff.

    very interesting, I didnt know they were that big, scary statistics.

  • Ray

    corsair seem so small after reading that. but that doesnt really mean much in regards to quality. I will be honest Kingston are never on my list when im looking for memory or other specialties. Might give them a look now after reading this.

  • Stefan

    he was surprisingly blunt, which I liked. many executives dance around the questions, he didnt. Full marks for that approach, very refreshing.

  • Ramstein

    Kingston ram is actually very good, I bought it for my system last time as a local dealer had it on offer, and its been as good as any other brands ive owned.

    Very good interview, liked the reporting style.

  • Terry

    I thought this was very good interviewing and his responses were both honest and to the point, which is quite unusual to read. One thing though, his comments on SATA 600. while probably true, are missing the point. Sata 600 is the future and if you choose to ignore it, due to sales figures then its very damaging to a company as being seen as a ‘leader’. Those who make the most daring products can actually sell goods further down their line.

    I fail to see how anyone would pay so much for a camera storage card. perhaps for business and sports photographers who need fast storage and an array of shots from their high end canon or nikon?

  • Sam

    I like a guy who isn’t afraid to hide behind an executive mask. very direct !

  • Garry

    Well this makes up for the lackluster HIS interview on kitguru last month, which was so boring I almost hit my head off the keyboard. This guy in Kingston is a sharp shooter, like it.

  • Tech Head

    Interviews are hard. if the person is boring, the whole experience is a chore. This one was a good read from start to finish. thanks to Bernd for taking the time to tell it like it is 😉

  • Tri Color

    I wonder why they dont get into power supply design like so many other memory manufacturers do.
