Pelco Changes Aimed at Sharply Focusing on Innovation, Quality, Service

CLOVIS, Calif.

Calling it part of a newly invigorated commitment to technology innovation, reduced time to market, total customer satisfaction and complete product quality, Pelco has announced several internal operational changes.

In the area of technology innovation, company management has appointed Greg Millar to the newly created position of CTO. In this role, Millar is responsible for designing the future of Pelco’s video surveillance by helping discover and develop emerging technologies that will drive the company’s innovation and leadership within the IT/IP and HD video markets.

As part of a renewed company focus to bring advanced product offerings quickly to market, Pelco management has moved to consolidate its engineering team under a single vice president. With this decision, Ben Kimbell has accepted the position of Pelco vice president of Engineering and Product Development. Included in this position is the combined Imaging and Systems Engineering Departments. The functional teams of Engineering Testing, Product Strategy and Technical Publications will also reside within this comprehensive Engineering Department. Kimbell will report directly to Pelco President and CEO Dean Meyer. Additionally, to help in this effort, Joel Larner has accepted the position of vice president, Program Management. Included in this position are the responsibilities of program and project management, overall governance to process and procedures, and metrics management of the overall product development process.

With a focus to bring new tools and capabilities to achieving total customer satisfaction, the Pelco Product Support Department is now under new leadership and the group has been moved to a new position within the organization. Joanne Weber-Fosnight has accepted the position of vice president, Product Support. Included with this position are the global functions of Technical Support and Warranty/Repair Service, Product Support Engineering, and CSIS. The Pelco Global Training and Quality Assurance Departments will now, respectively, report directly to the Sales Department and to the Operations Department.

“With our Technical Support Department now focused exclusively on customer issues, and with Quality Assurance now embedded within Operations, our team will be even more focused on customer support on a global basis and be able to very proactively address any product quality concerns ,” says Meyer.

And finally, Pelco management and the entire company would like to officially congratulate Senior Vice President Jim Brannan on his retirement and thank him for his outstanding contribution to the company during the past seven years. The company credits Brannan’s leadership as instrumental in growing Pelco into a global company.

As a result of Brannan’s retirement, and in order to facilitate tighter marketing support for the global sales organization, officials have announced that the Pelco Marketing Department has been consolidated with Sales under the leadership of Cliff Holtz, who will now serve as senior vice president of America Sales and Global Marketing.
