DVTel Expands Again

Company grows global sales and technical staff following recent headquarter expansion


Ridgefield Park, N.J. - DVTel Inc., multiple award-winning market leader in delivering integrated IP security solutions for surveillance and monitoring, announced the addition of four new staff in the U.S., in addition to two new UK staff announced in late January. Coming just weeks after DVTel moved to a new and expanded headquarters, the new hires increases the global sales team to 13 members located throughout the U.S., the U.K, and Asia.

Eli Gorovici, DVTel CEO, commented, "As we successfully expand our business further into important vertical markets like gaming and transportation, it's clear we need more staff, but only highly experienced, knowledgeable staff. We've got a great team and we?re continuing to grow." DVTel's new staff include:

J. Steven Rice, Director Strategic Channel Development, brings more than 25 years of experience in the hi-tech industry in both software and hardware manufacturing, including over four years experience in IP surveillance video. Steve is responsible for developing DVTel?s global IT channel business. Formerly, Steve was a Senior Practice Manager at StorageTek with global responsibility for the company's Security Surveillance Program.

Brian Friedman, Southern California sales manager, has worked in the security industry for 15 years. For the last six years, Brian has held positions at the top firms NICE and Vicon. Prior to working for manufacturers, he worked with a number of integrators in Southern California.

Kirk Hansen, northwest region sales manager, has Northern California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Washington, Nevada, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming and Montana in his territory. Kirk has extensive security industry experience, most recently as a National Account Manager for Vicon, and an additional 10 years with Johnson Controls and Telect.

Chris Helin, central region sales manager, will oversee Northern Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota. Helin joins DVTel after 10 years with Vicon, where he was the National Accounts Manager for the gaming market. His 15 years as Security Manager for Target Corporation make him a 25-year industry veteran.

At last month's IIPSEC show in Coventry, U.K., DVTel announced the addition of Gary Frost, UK Sales Manager, and Molly Chatha, Customer Support, to help that office keep pace with demand for DVTel's solutions and expansion into new territories.
