With demand for scalable, mission-critical video solutions growing across industries, the time is right to accelerate our capacity to serve our commercial customers.”

With a 35-year track record in the systems integration and physical security sectors, Hobbs most recently served as the Global Vice President of Sales for the 3xLOGIC and PACOM brands within Securitas. At 3xLOGIC, Hobbs successfully piloted a sales team that secured Deloitte Technology Fast 500 sales growth rates and made a significant impact on the use of business intelligence within the retail sector. Hobbs is a subject matter expert in IP video surveillance, video analytics, and data network design.

“With 35 years of technology experience, I've had the privilege to experience countless innovations in our field. Yet, I can confidently attest that Edge 360’s Surveill stands at the forefront as the most innovative and responsive enterprise-class VMS platform I've encountered,” Hobbs said. “Surveill is designed to sharpen your perspective and deliver a clear understanding of your security environment.”

Joining the team after 15 years at Genetec, Ritter brings to Edge 360 a wealth of sales and operations experience. His most recent role was as the Director of Sales, Public Sector, where he excelled in shaping and guiding the vertical market team and devising strategic initiatives for both new and existing clientele.

"Surveill's innovative integration of containerization with the operating system brings a new era of video management, characterized by high reliability, maximized system uptime, and unparalleled data security," Ritter said. "Tailored specifically for mission-critical video workloads, Surveill offers an IT-friendly foundation that provides the performance, scalability, and resilience required to meet today's dynamic safety and operational demands. I am thrilled to join the team and excited about contributing to its ongoing growth trajectory."
