“We’re excited to announce the addition of our Technical Sales Team,” said Colin DePree, Sales Strategy, at SALTO North America. “As the security and access control industry continues to evolve, our platforms often become components of larger ecosystems.

“As integration partnerships become more and more important in this industry, I’m excited to lead the first integration-focused specialist team in North America. We will streamline the way we identify and onboard our future ecosystem partners while re-energizing and simplifying the partnerships already in place,” Kourelos said.

Roland Smith is the technical sales lead for the SALTO ProAccess SPACE Platform.
