Continental Access hires Jim Olson

Continental Access announces the new hire of Jim Olson as our Midwest Regional Sales Manager. He will be representing the states of Arkansas, Minnesota, Kansas, Wisconsin Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska and the Dakotas.

We welcome Jim, his 18+ years of experience in the tech industry and the wealth of knowledge he brings to our business. Having started his career in the mid 1980’s at Unisys, Jim learned a great deal from the various roles he served in engineering, tech support and sales management. In 1990, he began a career at ITI/NCS and was involved in inside/outside tech support and dealer training. Over the years, Jim expanded his areas of expertise and began applying his skills to the sales arena. This eventually led him to join Ultrak in 2000 as Regional Sales Manager where he sold access control and video for seven states. When Honeywell acquired Ultrak in 2002, Jim stayed on board and flourished as a Regional Sales Manager achieving sales. He was also inducted into Honeywell’s President Club in 2005 and presented with Honeywell’s Top Achievement award in 2007.

"We are very excited to bring a person with Jim’s experience aboard the Continental Access Team," said Scott Schramme, VP of Sales for Continental Access. "Jim will bring an added wealth of knowledge to our sales management team."
