Emergency24 Appoints New VP of Operations and Administration
Before joining the Emergency24, Steve Mayer served in distribution in a similar capacity.
DES PLAINES, Ill — Emergency24 has appointed Steve Mayer as vice president of operations and administration, replacing long-time executive Patrick Devereaux, who has retired but remains with the company in an advisory role.
Prior to joining the Emergency24, based here, Mayer served as vice president of operations in distribution. Previously, he worked in finance, operations, corporate real estate and procurement at United Airlines, Bally Fitness and Career Education.
“Steve’s diverse professional experience will allow him to delve into Emergency24’s operations with a unique and fresh perspective,” states Baird Larson, vice president and director of technology. “We selected Steve because he demonstrated the ability to achieve strong financial, operational and customer-service performance. He has in-depth experience in strategic planning, financial analysis and process improvement.”
Like his predecessor Devereaux, Mayer is a “numbers person” and he says the company will continue to measure itself and implement ways to further strengthen operations, according to an announcement.
“I’m excited to join a well-running and long-standing operation that is already a market leader with its people, service and technology. The culture is a great fit with my continuous improvement philosophy,” Mayer says. “Emergency24 has many strengths and a tremendous future. It is very clear that our people and our technology are what attract new customers and have retained existing customers for decades. What excites me most is our opportunity to use these core strengths to grow and improve our services and customer experience.”
Emergency24, headquartered in Illinois since its founding in 1967, is a nationwide provider of alarm-monitoring services with branches in suburban Los Angeles, Milwaukee and Washington D.C.
