Jennifer A. Theobald has joined the senior leadership team of Rapid Security Solutions, LLC (RSS) as Vice President of Operations.

Critical time in company development

Most recently she was a Business Development Manager for Axis Communications; her other credentials include sales, project management and operations positions at Bold Technologies, Milestone Systems and Rapid Response Monitoring.

Theobald assumes the new role at a critical time in the company’s development, according to Steven Paley, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rapid Security Solutions. “We are at an inflection point where we will surpass our revenue goals for 2017 and need an experienced senior operations leader, like Jennifer, on our team to facilitate our continued growth. With our long-term plan to expand the business in a scalable, profitable and more efficient manner, the timing made sense to add a dedicated senior level manager whose focus is RSS operations.”

Paley said he was familiar with Theobald through various industry organisations and associations and knew her top credentials would make her the right person to oversee and orchestrate this important position. “She is a proven leader with more than a decade of experience in electronic security and a track record of success in managing high-growth operations,” he added.

Theobald said she is excited to have been actively recruited by RSS and will focus on refining current operating procedures with the goal of gaining greater efficiencies at the company’s headquarters and five Florida branch locations. “We want to make certain RSS is ready and prepared for its next stage of growth in every aspect of operations”, she said. “Having worked in the manufacturing and monitoring sides of the business allows me to leverage my past knowledge and relate it to better practices at RSS. All the different experiences that have led me here will provide a good basis for success as we continue moving forward in this exciting and rapidly changing market.”

As Vice President of Operations, Theobald will lead, manage and maintain responsibility for all RSS production and client service operations and team members. She will be highly focused on implementing and reinforcing process and procedure to further drive RSS to a scalable, highly efficient operation that can handle the future growth the company envisions.
