Protection One Bolsters Sales, National Accounts Team


Protection One Inc., a provider of monitored security services, announces the promotion of three top sales executives as part of the company’s alignment of its residential, commercial and designated national accounts divisions.

“With this realignment, and as one of few national security providers, we are responding to the unique needs of our various customer segments across the country, especially the growing inquiries from commercial and national account prospects for enterprise-wide security solutions,” says Richard Ginsburg, president and CEO. “This sharpened focus on our growing national accounts program, along with our already strong presence in the residential and commercial markets, will allow us to dedicate resources toward providing the next generation in security for these distinct customers.”

Kevin Williams has been promoted to vice president of national sales. He was formally responsible for overseeing Protection One’s commercial and national accounts, but will now focus his efforts solely on national sales. He has been with Protection One since 2004, and has been involved in the security industry for 21 years working primarily with ADT and Siemens.

Jim Boots has been named vice president of residential sales after serving with Protection One for seven years. He has prior experience with Westar Security, PSI and Smith Alarm Systems.

Chris Cos, who previously worked as a direct sales and installation manager for ADT, will spearhead commercial sales as vice president. His roles will include general and sales management for the commercial arena.
