Alarm and security company Protection 1 taps veteran employee for general manager position


MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Protection 1, the second-largest electronic security company in the U.S., recently announced that Tim Wess has been named their Minneapolis area general manager.

Wess has been with Protection 1 for more than 11 years, and has an impressive track record of performance, winning both Club 1 and President Circle trips – incentive programs designed for top performing employees.

“Tim is a true leader in the security industry and has developed excellent skills working with prospects, customers and fellow employees,” said Chris Massaglia, regional vice president. “While at Protection 1 Tim has been a go-to guy for many branch employees and served in a leadership capacity before it was reflected in his title.”

In his new role, Wess will be responsible for all branch operations including budget, recruiting, hiring, training and compensation, as well as all community outreach and networking.

“My experience over the last 11 years at Protection 1 has been diverse and varied, and I’m excited to bring that knowledge to my new role,” Wess said. “Protection 1 has a reputation built on outstanding customer service, and my branch will continue to deliver on that precedent.”

Tim is a “true family man” and, when not working, he spends time with his wife of 11 years, Mary, their children, Ethan (7) and Lauren (5), and the family golden retriever, Riley.
