-- Miamisburg, Ohio — Matrix Systems, a Miamisburg, Ohio-based access control and security solutions provider, welcomes three new business development managers, Daniel Artman, Rusty Johnson, and Mary Revelos-Knecht, to drive new sales and help end users design and implement Matrix’s electronic security strategies.
The business development managers’ primary duties involve educating purchasers or decision makers—end users, architects, construction companies and engineering firms—about Matrix access control systems.
Johnson brings to Matrix 25 years of technical sales experience in companies such as the wireless lock manufacturer Onity, a division of UTC Fire and Security, Duluth, Ga., where he managed sales for nine Southwestern states, and NetNearU of Austin, Texas, where he sold hardware and software for wireless networking “hotspot” infrastructure for public and semi-public locations.
Two-time Eagle award winner Artman also has experience at Onity, as sales manager for both the Southeast and Western regions. Prior to that, at Atlanta’s CMD Group, he sold to general contractors in the construction industry.
Revelos-Knecht has over 10 years in regional sales experience in the manufacturing, higher education and health care markets. In her previous role at 3M Security Systems Division, she managed the Mid-Atlantic States for direct and dealer sales in the health care market. Revelos-Knecht managed sales for Onity throughout nine Midwestern states. Previously she was an account and regional manager at Hobsons and Tomsons Steel Company, both based in Ohio.
"Each of our new business development managers has an extensive sales background with a proven track record of selling to the security and technology markets," said James Young, president, Matrix Systems. “We are delighted to welcome them to the Matrix team.”
