NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. — My Alarm Center, a provider of residential home security, announces its plans to expand East Coast operations with the appointment of a new leader.

James Harper, previously director of sales at Alarm Monitoring Services of Atlanta (AMSA), the My Alarm Center’s brand located in Atlanta, has been promoted to regional vice president of sales, Eastern region.

Harper joined the company in August 2017 as field training manager at AMSA Security. In his four years with the company, Harper has held progressively responsible roles within the organization and has been recognized for his success in operationalizing and growing AMSA’s sales force while consistently beating sales targets and setting new benchmarks for the team, according to the company.

Harper will be tasked with scaling the teams immediately to support the growing operation while remaining dedicated to fostering customer engagement, nurturing existing business partnerships and seeking additional strategic partnerships to support the company’s strategic goals.

“James has a keen ability to inspire our sales organization to have a healthy disregard for the impossible. His ability to balance organic organizational growth with a change mindset while creating a culture of engagement, fun and executional excellence is unparalleled,” comments Goodman.
