Brighton, Michigan (PRWEB) August 17, 2014
IP Security Reps Inc. (IPSR), the premier security manufacturer’s representative firm, today announced the appointment of a new addition to its sales team. The company has strengthened its team by naming John Collias as its new Sales Engineer covering the Chicago area. Mr. Collias brings a wealth of sales knowledge and industry expertise with him and will be fundamental in increasing IPSR’s penetration into the Chicago market.
The decision to expand came from the company’s CEO, Rob Lydic. Mr. Lydic’s vision for IPSR involves building a strong sales team that will bring the company’s IP-centric sales model to market and benefit its integrator and distribution partners. In order to successfully implement this vision, he looked for a sales veteran with the right mix of engineering and sales experience. Mr. Collias fit this model perfectly.
Mr. Collias is a veteran sales executive who brings over 10 years of experience in account management. He graduated from the University of Kentucky in 2001 and held several management positions in his career. In his role at IPSR, Mr. Collias will be catering to accounts in the Chicago territory to help IPSR continue to build strong relationships and grow its product line in this area. Prior to starting at IPSR, Mr. Collias held the position of Territory Account Manager at Global Knowledge and worked with small to enterprise-level companies and government agencies to address IT and leadership training needs in the Chicago area. In addition, he held the position as Comcast’s Xfinity Home Security Sales Supervisor where he managed the sales team to launch the new home security product for Comcast.
“Mr. Collias’s talent and experience will definitely strengthen even further our position as a leading security manufacturer rep firm,” states Rob Lydic, IPSR’s President. “We are excited to bring him on board and look forward to continuing our expansion in the Chicago area.”
