Franklyn to be responsible for all facets of dealer management

San Ramon, CA, June 20, 2016 -- SAFE Security announced today that Gary Franklyn has been promoted to the newly created position of Senior Vice President of Dealer Sales.  In this role, Franklyn will be responsible for all facets of dealer management including dealer sales and marketing as well as dealer recruitment and retention. Franklyn will be based out of Safeguard Security, SAFE’s branch office in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Paul Sargenti, SAFE Security President and CEO comments, “This newly created position will allow Gary to transition out of his current duties as Vice President of Branch Operations and take our dealer program to the next level. Franklyn comes with extensive knowledge and experience within the industry in general and the recruitment and management of dealer programs in particular, having spent eight years at Security Networks, West Palm Beach, Florida, where he created its affiliate dealer program growing the company’s start-up affiliate business to more than $100 million in annual revenue. The company was acquired in 2013 by Monitronics, Dallas, Texas.

On joining SAFE’s leadership team, Franklyn observed, “I was familiar with SAFE’s reputation and staff.  SAFE is looking to grow its business through several different arenas and become a progressive leader setting standards in the industry and I’m excited about the opportunity for a new challenge at SAFE and look forward to working with the team to further develop its already extensive product and service suite.  I am fortunate to be out of my non-compete agreement and look forward to making SAFE a dominant force in the dealer business.”    

Sargenti explains, "If Gary can do for SAFE what he did at Security Networks we need to start hiring more staff now.  All kidding aside, he is highly respected in the industry for getting deals done and helping dealers grow their sales. I couldn't be happier to have him in this newly created position for SAFE. Gary will bring a new level of energy and growth potential for our competitive dealer program”
