GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., October 30th, 2019–EPS Security has hired Kevin DeWent to lead its statewide home and business sales team. The family-owned, West Michigan-based security provider created the position to capitalize on steady business growth and improve market penetration.
Kevin DeWent is a veteran sales leader with 17 years of experience in West Michigan. DeWent was hired specifically for his experience outside the security industry and ability to invigorate sales professionals. EPS Security’s team of more than a dozen experienced security consultants across five statewide offices will report directly to DeWent.
“Throughout Michigan there are homes and businesses with exceptional security needs, and it is vitally important our security consultants deliver a high standard of service,” said Russell Cross, EPS Security’s Director of Sales. “Kevin’s expertise will help build on our reputation as Michigan’s premier security provider.”
The hire comes just more than a year after EPS Security acquired two Michigan-based security companies: Video Tech Tronics (VTT) of Comstock Park, MI and Security Alarm Company (SAC) of Owosso, MI.
