Welcome to the Team!
We are thrilled to announce the arrival of Tim Russell and Lent Ross! As our new Southeast Regional Sales Manager and Territory Sales Manager, they bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience in the security industry.
Tim and Lent are both very enthusiastic in taking their next steps in their respective careers, embarking on a new chapter – not just for themselves but also for Keri Systems. We are thrilled to have them onboard and are looking forward to the new chapter that lies ahead.
Tim Russell: An Army military Veteran has been in the security industry since 1997. Tim 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 4 states and 2 employees to 12 states and 7 employees as the founder and president. Coastal has represented Keri Systems since 2011. Tim stated – “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.”
Lent Ross: With over 30 years of experience in the industry, Lent has worked for Coastal Security Consultants before joining Keri Systems. He described the transitions as an extremely easy process, and said in his own words – “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. I am excited to be a part of the Keri team and look forward to many years of growth and success.” In addition to his professional achievements, Lent is a devoted family man who has been married for 28 years, has two daughters and two granddaughters, and enjoys following SEC Sports, fishing, reading, and spoiling his grandchildren.
We at Keri Systems are excited to have them as part of our team and we can’t wait to see what new ideas and strategies they will bring to the table. We look forward to seeing them grow and develop in their new roles.
Welcome to the team Tim and Lent! We are excited to have you join us on this journey.
