IDIS has named Mikal Ranneklev as the company’s regional sales manager for the north central region, further building out its North American sales operation, as the global surveillance powerhouse continues to aggressively expand its regional footprint.

Developed and managed by Keith Drummond, IDIS America’s Senior Director of Sales and Marketing, IDIS North American sales have grown steadily since the company’s 2015 debut in the Americas, with operational strength enhanced through the appointment of experienced security professionals to shepherd customer relationships throughout the Americas.

Multi-faceted security industry experience

Ranneklev brings more than two decades of multi-faceted security industry experience to IDIS. A business graduate of Houghton College in New York, Ranneklev has worked extensively serving partners and end users in both access control and video surveillance manufacturing. A proven manager of sales relationships for projects ranging from small- to mid-size businesses through enterprise level installations, Ranneklev’s extensive experience aligns well with IDIS’s commitment to meeting “any surveillance need of any size” through its comprehensive, end-to-end analogue and IP networked video surveillance solutions.

Drummond said, “Since our debut in the Americas in 2015, IDIS has consistently built a team of proven, experienced security professionals to serve as our brand ambassadors in the Americas. Mikal Ranneklev brings an ideal combination of security industry expertise, commitment to customer service, and mid-western ‘can-do’ to the IDIS family. He will be an ideal partner and valuable resource for our customers and I look forward to working with him.”

Unrivalled plug-and-play simplicity

Ranneklev agreed, “IDIS has been a respected and global leader in the security industry for decades, and its growing presence in the Americas since the launch of its brand business has been admirable from the start. IDIS has been quickly establishing a strong market position in key segments as it grows, and I’m excited to be a part of the team, helping to write that story.”

The IDIS total solution offers an end-to-end, single sourced offering that delivers unrivalled plug-and-play simplicity, combined with highest-quality performance, compatibility, and a low total cost of ownership and now features the longest recorder warranty in the industry.
