Atlanta Selected as Westec’s National Sales HQ

(BUSINESS WIRE)--Westec Intelligent Surveillance, the nation’s largest remote video monitoring company, announced today that it has selected Atlanta, Georgia as the location for its national sales headquarters. Additionally, Westec announced Charles Moeling as its Executive Vice President of Sales and Chief Marketing Officer.

Given the company’s double-digit growth in sales this year, Westec plans to accelerate the expansion of its sales teams and recently secured new office space in Atlanta at the Concourse Corporate campus in the Central Perimeter area. Mr. Moeling commented, “Atlanta offers us an excellent talent pool as we look to expand our team of sales professionals, and the area provides exceptional infrastructure supporting the growth of a retail and hospitality focused organization.”

Mr. Moeling brings 20 years of strategy, sales, operations and technology experience to the company. His responsibilities include developing Westec’s sales and marketing strategies and leading the company’s go-to-market teams.

Westec recently received national attention and $20 million in growth funding in large part for its unique 2-way audio technology. Westec video monitoring specialists can “talk” and interact with potential threats in thousands of customer locations nationwide in real time, helping to diffuse escalating situations that risk the safety and security of the location. Westec’s proprietary monitoring technology saves retail and restaurant customers millions of dollars annually, and leading clients like McDonald’s, Burger King, Waffle House, La Quinta, EZ Mart and Zales rely upon Westec’s services to ensure the day-to-day safety and performance of their operations.

“Helping our customers save money and run more secure operations, Westec is strategically positioned to perform well in this tough economy as we continue to deploy our unique technology and services to leading companies in the retail and hospitality industries,” said Kelby Hagar, CEO for Westec. “Securing top talent, like Chuck Moeling, plays a key role in our company’s growth strategy, and our investment in Atlanta, and its pool of talent, provides a great platform for Westec’s continued leadership in the security industry.”

Prior to joining Westec, Mr. Moeling served as Vice President of Retail at Radiant Systems where he played a key role in winning strategic customers, including The Athlete’s Foot and Batteries Plus. Before Radiant, Moeling was a founding executive of BlueCube Software where Moeling’s teams added strategic accounts such as Marriott Select Services and doubled the firm’s subscription installations. Moeling holds an MBA from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and a BE in Electrical Engineering from Vanderbilt University’s School of Engineering.
