SCOTTSDALE, AZ – Nov 3, 2014 – Guardian 8 Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Guardian 8 Holdings (OTCQB: GRDH), announced today the hiring of Gary Kuty of Dayton, Ohio to a newly formed role of Vice President of Sales for the company. Kuty founded Kuty & Associates, LLC and oversaw its consulting and training operations in Dayton and Las Vegas for over a decade and became a well-respected author on corporate security matters. As a 40 year veteran of the police and security industries, he is a well-known confidant to security company leaders throughout the U.S.
Kuty’s arrival at Guardian 8 is timed with recent growth of prospecting into international markets as well as surging interest in key verticals across the U.S. Since the release of the Pro V2 device in the newly created category of Enhanced Non-Lethal (ENL), the tool has won early adoption as a defensive response for security officers in the private security industry as well as markets including the entertainment industry, schools, hospitals and public spaces.
“We formed Guardian 8 with the mission to fundamentally change the security industry forever and Gary’s addition to the team marks an exciting milestone in these efforts,” said Guardian 8 CEO Steve Cochennet. “Credibility is everything in this business. We are thrilled that Gary, with his history in the industry and impeccable reputation for guiding security companies to success, is as enthusiastic about our mission as we are. Gary is a natural fit for us.”
Prior to announcing the hire, Guardian 8 had consulted with Kuty on a number of matters, including which industry partners and associations were vital to the company’s development.
“I am excited to be a key part of revolutionizing the industry where I have devoted my career,” Kuty said. “I have witnessed firsthand how the Pro V2 is poised to dramatically change the industry by reducing liability and improving officer safety.”
Kuty will lead a luncheon presentation for contract and in-house security executives, risk managers, legal teams, and financial executives on the benefits of ENL devices in New York City, November 20, in conjunction with the ISC East security conference at Javits Center. To inquire about this event, call 480-426-1060 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
