SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Feb 6, 2014) - Guardian 8 Corporation, a wholly owned operating subsidiary of Guardian 8 Holdings (OTCQB: GRDH), announced today that it has expanded its team with strategic hires for three newly created sales director positions. The new sales directors bring more than 30 years of combined experience from past positions at Securitas Security Services USA, Kent Security and Fortune 500 company W.W. Grainger. Each sales director will be responsible for a 10-state territory, covering the West, Midwest and Southern regions of the United States. They will report to the Guardian 8 COO Paul Hughes.
"We are continuing to execute our business plan with the roll out of domestic sales personnel to complement our international efforts, '' said Steve Cochennet, CEO of Guardian 8. ''Our Fortune 100 customers will expect top-notch performance from us at every level and our new sales team will be the tip of that spear. The number of individuals hired by corporations to provide professional security is estimated to be four times the size of those working in U.S. law enforcement, and the Department of Labor notes that the security industry is growing at a rate twice that of law enforcement. Given the sheer size of the professional security market and anticipated growth, there is a lot of opportunity for our sales team."
Hughes noted that the company anticipates continued expansion of its sales team, with the addition of a sales director for the Atlantic territory, which spans from Virginia to upstate New York and includes five of the seven states that ban electronic stun devices from use in the security industry. "This specific territory is especially underserved within the security sector and is ideally positioned to benefit from Guardian 8's solutions," Hughes added.
Guardian 8 Holdings, through its wholly owned operating subsidiary Guardian 8 Corporation, has developed the Pro V2 enhanced non-lethal device which emphasizes a 'layered defense' approach to personal protection. The Pro V2 unit is specialized for professional security and is being adopted in a variety in industries including hospitals and corporate campuses intent on mitigating workplace violence concerns.
