Kevin MacKenzie

Paxton, the global brand of electronic IP access control, video surveillance and video intercom systems, has hired a new and highly experienced addition to their U.S. sales team, as they continue to accelerate growth across North America.

Kevin MacKenzie joined the Paxton team in September as the East Central regional sales manager. His role has been developed in conjunction with the company’s planned growth initiative and a rise in demand for Paxton products across the United States. He will be responsible for supporting distributors and installers from Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Michigan with a nod to the Canadian market.

“I am pleased to be working with Paxton as there is a real gap in the U.S. market for smart, simple and scalable security solutions, MacKenzie said.

“Paxton’s access control systems and standalone products are proving of real interest to US customers. The current growth rate we are seeing is exciting as we break new ground across every state.”

He brings many years of experience from his days as Business Sales Manager for ADT along with a winning attitude proven by his multiple sales awards.

“We are delighted to welcome Kevin to the team. He has demonstrated excellent sales and customer service support while working with some of the largest companies in the US. His commitment to delivering a best-in-class customer experience is the perfect match with how we go to market,” said Jonathan Lach, Paxton’s vice president of sales.

“It’s a pleasure to be working with Paxton who has a fresh and innovative approach to business with modern solutions for our customers,” Mackenzie said.
