SALTO Systems Adds Area Leaders for Three Regions in North America
“We believe this approach will lead to a more customer-centric organization, resulting in greater customer satisfaction and loyalty,” says SALTO North America President Bill Wood.
NORCROSS, Ga. – SALTO Systems has announced the appointment of three new area leaders for the West, Southeast, and Northeast regions of North America. The move comes as part of the organization’s decentralization initiative to enhance customer service, foster a culture of learning, and ensure sustainable growth.
“I’m proud that our team and organization has grown and achieved the ability to begin to realize this decentralized vision. Many within our team have been working hard behind the scenes to arrive at this moment,” says SALTO North America President Bill Wood. “Decentralizing our organization allows us to get closer to our customers and better understand their needs. By moving decision-making closer to the customer, we can respond more quickly to their needs, improve our service offerings, and ensure that we are meeting their expectations.
“We believe this approach will lead to a more customer-centric organization, resulting in greater customer satisfaction and loyalty, and will help us attract and retain top talent, enhance our organizational capabilities, and drive innovation,” Wood continues.
Joe Buist has been named area leader for SALTO West. Buist, who has been in the security industry for nearly two decades, has worked for SALTO for 11 years in a variety of technology and sales roles and most recently served as senior regional sales manager for the West. Prior to joining SALTO, Buist served as a loss prevention director for the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, account executive for Integra Telecom, and area loss prevention manager for Harmons Grocery.
“The quality and innovation that SALTO puts into developing electronic locks and access control solutions are what drew me to the company over 10 years ago. I’m grateful to have worked in many areas for SALTO and know that my extensive experience at many levels will help in this new opportunity to lead the West in connecting with and servicing our valued partners and customers,” says Buist.
Steve Burk is the area leader for SALTO Southeast. Burk most recently served SALTO as director of marketing and industries. Before joining SALTO four years ago, his career included marketing and sales leadership with Delta Material Services, Avaya, Inc., and IBM Corporation. His specialties include leading direct and channel marketing, strategic planning, operational effectiveness, channel sales, and key vendor relations.
“Having successfully directed multi-faceted assignments and assumed key roles in the development of high-visibility, high-impact projects, I look forward to leading the Southeast area team and working with David and Joe. Together, with our customer-first philosophy, we will deliver unparalleled customer value,” says Burk.
David Latreille is the area leader for SALTO Northeast. He most recently served SALTO as international program manager, delivering complex programs to SALTO’s largest clients around the world. An end user advocate and disciplined agile evangelist, he says he looks forward to sharing the experiences of the last five years at SALTO with his team and their customers.
“As a people-over-process leader, I’m honored to be given the opportunity to work with such an amazing group of individuals here at SALTO. We recognize that every single employee’s contribution is essential to our success, and I look forward to playing my part in our evolution,” says Latreille.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Joe, Steve, and David to their new roles. With their extensive industry knowledge, experience, and leadership, they will be instrumental in driving SALTO ‘s decentralized approach, delivering unparalleled customer value, and ensuring sustainable growth,” says Wood.
