Keri Systems has introduced Tim Russell as the new Southeast Regional Sales Manager for the company and Lent Ross as its new Territory Sales Manager.
According to Keri Systems, Russell and Ross are both enthusiastic to take this next step in their respective careers.
“We are thrilled to have both Tim and Lent onboard and are looking forwards to the new chapter that lies ahead,” the company said in a statement.
Russell is an army military veteran who has been in the security industry since 1997. He began his career as a salesman for a nation integrator, then moved onto work in manufacturer sales with Bosch and later with Honeywell. He spent 11 years with Honeywell, where he held the position of a Director of Sales for Video and Access in the Eastern US and Canada.
In 2011, he started Coastal Security Consultants, a manufacturer’s representative firm. He grew the company from four states and two employees to 12 states and seven employees as the Founder and President. Coastal has represented Keri Systems since 2011.
“Even though I had a very successful business, I was ready for a new challenge in life. When the opportunity to work directly with Keri, who we have had a very successful and long time partnership with, came available, it was a perfect fit. I am excited to be a direct employee with Keri and utilize my years of experience to help them grow sales and exceed their expectations,” said Russell.
With over 30 years of experience in the industry, Ross worked for Coastal Security Consultants before joining Keri Systems.
“Keri Systems has one of the best customer service and technical teams I have ever seen! The support from the administrative staff is awesome and everyone involved has been extremely welcoming and supportive,” said Ross.
“I am excited to be a part of the Keri team and look forward to many years of growth and success.”
