Nortek Promotes Ryan Kosterow to Business Development Manager of Linear’s Western Region
Nortek says Kosterow’s demonstrated expertise of access control products and market trends will enable him to enrich relationships with dealers and distribution partners.
CARLSBAD, Calif. — Nortek Control announces that Ryan Kosterow has been promoted to business development manager for the Linear brand in its Western region.
Kosterow originally joined the company as a Linear Pro Channel regional sales manager in 2018 representing the brand’s Perimeter products. His demonstrated expertise of access control products and market trends enabled Kosterow to enrich relationships with dealers and distribution partners by helping them realize additional business opportunities and grow their businesses, according to the company.
Prior to joining Nortek Control, Kosterow held the national sales account manager position at Accounting Principals responsible for business development in North America.
His experience also includes an international sales director position at Nexus 21 Concealment Systems where he is said to have implemented a sales plan to drastically increase non-U.S. sales. Kosterow holds an M.A. degree in business from Clark College.
“In my new role, I’m looking forward to further strengthening customer relationships by supplying the support, training and best-in-class sales tools they need to successfully sell our industry-leading Linear products and solutions. I want help dealers see the full potential in our Linear premier access control line that allows them to offer everything an organization needs for comprehensive security and access control giving them a distinct competitive edge that also opens up new revenue possibilities,” says Kosterow.
Joe Schenke, vice president of sales at Nortek Control, adds, “Ryan has shown tremendous leadership and the ability to truly connect with our dealer and distribution partners. His deep knowledge of our Linear products and technologies will help us enhance and expand our customer base while continuing to meet growing demand in the West with the superior service and support the Linear brand is known for.”
Last year, Nortek dropped the word “security” from its name to emphasize its broader market presence in connectivity and control, the company stated.
