DMP announced the expansion of its East Coast sales leadership team with the promotion of Hunter Pardue to Director of Sales — East.

Pardue joined DMP in 2014 as the dealer development manager (DDM) for the company’s Southeast Region. He has quickly proven his outstanding leadership abilities, making this transition a natural one. 

The Southeast Region is one of DMP’s 20 sales territories across the U.S. As the DDM in that region, Pardue has provided outstanding service to DMP-authorized dealers across Georgia, South Carolina and the Florida Panhandle, helping them grow their businesses while also playing a pivotal role in developing many new successful sales opportunities.

“Hunter has continued to provide strong support and valuable insights that have helped build greater success and profitability for our Southeast Region’s authorized dealers,” said Mark NeSmith, vice president of sales.  

As DMP’s Director of Sales – East, Pardue will lead a six-member sales team with territories including New York Metro, New England, Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Mid-South, Southeast and Florida.

“DMP is honored to work with a network of highly skilled sales professionals across the country, and Hunter is exceptional,” NeSmith adds. “We’re thrilled he is stepping into this director role, and we know our network will continue to grow under his leadership.”

Prior to joining DMP, Pardue was a sales account manager for DH Pace Systems Integration and was responsible for design and sale of security integration-based access control, CCTV and intrusion system products and services. He gained additional industry experience in his previous role as a sales account manager at Linder Security Systems. There, he was responsible for new business development and strategic account management for high-end systems delivered to customers across Georgia. He also started, owned and operated a successful residential/commercial security company. 

Hunter has bachelor’s in Business from Colorado Technical University, where he graduated magna cum laude. He also holds a Low Voltage License from the State of Georgia.
