Safemark Systems, a provider of in-room safes for the hospitality market, has announced the appointment of Peter Gardner to the position of Director of West Coast Sales. This promotion expands Peter Gardner's duties within the company where he currently directs Safemark's College and University Housing Division and Safemark's Residential Division, which supplies unique home safes to America's leading closet companies and builders.
Prior to joining Safemark in 2000, Gardner had an up close and personal experience with identity theft. That unfortunate event prompted his interest in hotel security and led to his meeting Safemark President, George Oelschig. Oelschig soon recognized that Gardner's considerable work experience combined with the passion he developed from his own grievous encounter would make him an outstanding addition to the Safemark team.
"Peter has been an integral component of Safemark's continued growth over the past four years," said Oelschig. "I'm confident in his ability to lead our direct sales efforts on the West Coast. Peter has a unique perspective having had a personal experience. He can relate to our clients and their guests in a special way."
