By David Strickland, Vice President of Kenton Brothers talking about our Mid-Missouri team.
Almost two years ago, Kenton Brothers decided to expand into the Mid-Missouri Market. We recognized that the market was under served, and needed direct and local representation.
Our first team member in this effort was a highly respected sales engineer named Stacy Wessing. Stacy was a great fit for KB. He hit the ground running. Stacy was able to identify and create strong relationships throughout the Mid-Missouri corridor within a very short time.
We then identified a leader for the area in Brian Nutt. Brian came to us with more than twenty years of experience in the security industry and a positive “can do” attitude. He has lived and worked in the Mid-Missouri market for years and saw the vision of growing our presence from the very beginning. Brian believes in strong relationships and is passionate about taking care of his customers. He has to – many of those customers are also his neighbors!
Fast forward about a year and the team was growing the market so fast they needed a full time technician in the field. KB welcomed David Potter, another veteran to the security industry. He has been “a lifesaver and miracle worker.” David is the type of guy that will work until the job is done. I personally worked with David on a project that went to almost 4am one day. He never complained. That type of dedication is rare at best and incredibly valuable.
This fantastic team continues to grow their customer base like wildfire with Integrity, Dedication and Service Quality. This year, the team will exceed the two million dollar mark by maximizing relationships all over the state of Missouri. Some of their clients include, Missouri State University, The City of Columbia, The University of Missouri, Public School Retirement System, Diamond Pet food and the list goes on and on!
With Brian’s leadership, Stacy’s attention to detail and Dave’s work ethic, this team will continue to grow and make an even bigger impact on the Mid-Missouri Market. As we add additional like-minded technicians and support personnel, the sky is the limit in Mid-Missouri! As a matter of fact we have just recently hired another full time IT tech to support our customers. Paul Rudkin comes to us from the US Army and we are very excited to have him on board. We’re so very proud of this team! Please join us in congratulating them in their success!
