Ms. Dougan started in the security industry in 1985 in a customer service/training role showing end-users how to use time-lapse VHS recorders and sequential switchers. She was previously Pelco's Director of Strategic Accounts and before that, spent several years in territory, national account and engineered systems design and sales with ADT in San Francisco and with Securus, Inc. (now Henry Brothers/Kratos) in Denver.
