Vector Security Inc., a provider of intelligent mobile security and home automation solutions to homes and businesses, along with its Nashville-based ADS Security division, announced the promotion of Craig Leyers to president of ADS.

Leyers succeeds John Cerasuolo, who is stepping down after serving as ADS president for the past 12 years. In his new role, Leyers is responsible for managing the ADS Business Unit, with branch operations reporting to him, as well as ADS marketing. He will report to Vector Security CEO Pamela J. Petrow.

“The new leadership team’s goal is to accelerate our continued growth,” Leyers said. “These changes will better take advantage of the larger Vector Security organization and focus on our legacy of growth.”

Leyers served as the senior vice president of sales and marketing for ADS for more than six years and was responsible for leading sales and marketing efforts across the Southeast. Prior to his role as senior vice president, Leyers served as vice president and general manager for nearly six years. He joined ADS Security from AFL Telecommunications, where he held various positions during his 15 year tenure, including director of marketing communications and enterprise market manager.

“We are fortunate to have a team of great leaders within the ADS operation that will continue the legacy of exceptional customer service,” Petrow said. “Craig is very talented and we are confident he will successfully grow this business to the next level.”
