|Residential sales program manager Brady Sessions, California sales team manager Jesse Crosby and Select Security president Patrick Egan discuss Select Security’s westward expansion.|
After a second successful year of summer door-to-door residential sales, Select Security, Lancaster, Pa., opened two new offices to support the program. The company also recently purchased FM Systems in Medina, Ohio.
This acquisition is one of the largest in Select Security’s history. All 12 former FM Systems employees will continue to serve the Eastern Ohio region, including vice presidents Dan Gurich and Debbie Carson. Gurich will now be taking over the role as branch sales manager, while Carson will manage all office operations.
“Ohio is a key market for Select Security as we continue to expand and grow,” said company president, Patrick Egan.
Select Security now has offices in Utah and California, as well as traditional branches in Pennsylvania and Ohio.
The Orem, Utah office now operates as the nerve center for the Select Security residential sales program administration. Residential administrative manager Jonathan Tharp will serve as the head of the 25-30 seat call center, as well as lead recruitment efforts in the area. The Orem location was chosen due to its central proximity to two large universities, Brigham Young University and the University of Utah, giving Select Security access to a large pool of potential recruits.
“With the success of our summer sales program we needed to have a west coast presence,” said Egan. “With our new Utah office we can now operate the program year-round in several key markets.”
Residential sales program manager Brady Sessions has also moved west, opening Select Security’s first California office in the suburbs of Sacramento.
“So far, we’ve had several teams commit to joining us for the 2012 season,” said Sessions. “Thanks to the fact that we pay our salespeople more than other programs do, we’ve had an incredible response so far and it looks like next summer will be our biggest season yet.”
