United Central Control (UCC), a contract monitoring company, has appointed Tom McNeil as National Account Executive. Based in Chicago, McNeil will put his 13 years of industry experience to use, in helping alarm-installing companies in the Midwest and Northeast. “What sets UCC apart from other alarm monitoring services is a genuine commitment to quality and customer relationships,” said McNeil. “I feel fortunate to work for such a high-quality company. I look forward to working one-on-one with alarm-installing companies by showing them how UCC can help their business grow.” “UCC offers dealers all of the advantages of the big alarm monitoring companies, but they do so with the personality and attention to detail that alarm dealers wish they had from other companies,” he said. “You’re going to know who you’re talking to at UCC when you call with a question. You’re going to receive that personal touch; not only from me, but from everyone at UCC.” Contract monitoring company services UCC’s Senior Vice President of Sales, Mark Matlock said McNeil’s industry experience will help UCC expand its focus to this important region of the country. “Dealers in Texas and the southern region of the United States understand the value UCC can bring to their business,” said Matlock. “We look forward to Tom working with dealers in new regions and showing them what a valuable asset the right contract monitoring company can be.” UCC President Teresa Gonzalez said she knows McNeil will be a great representative of the company and its customers. “Tom is very good at establishing relationships with his clients that provide the attention and customer service they deserve while also representing the company values of personal service that UCC has worked very hard to establish,” said Gonzalez. “We are excited to have him at UCC and we look forward to continued success together.”
McNeil will be reporting directly to Michael Bodnar, president of Security Partners As a middle linebacker and team captain for the Purdue Boilermakers, Tom McNeil realised in 1990 that he can’t accomplish anything without a solid infrastructure, experienced players and a smart game plan. Twenty-five years after he played his last football game for Purdue, with Big Ten Conference honours, McNeil is taking that same winning approach to the latest chapter in his life: serving as Vice President of Sales for Security Partners. McNeil, of Chicago, will be overseeing a national sales force, as he builds a team that will be stationed in strategic targets coast-to-coast. McNeil is enthusiastic about limitless growth, as Security Partners has a strong, well-earned reputation as a wholesale security provider, with its four secure operation centers across the United States. “I was given this terrific opportunity because I have proven sales skills in large geographical areas, and a consistent track record of growing revenue,” McNeil said. “It is the perfect match with Security Partners, which is really taking this industry by storm. This company is able to compete with the largest whole security monitoring companies in the United States as far as products. But no one beats our loyalty to our dealers. There is no company more committed to ensuring their success. In this area, Security Partners is proud to be an overachiever.” Focusing on security dealers McNeil and his team will be focused on recruiting security dealers, showing them how the many products and services at Security Partners can greatly enhance their bottom line. “This is all about organic growth, not acquisition,” McNeil said. “This is about winning over one dealer at a time, focusing on the reliability of four redundant secure operation centers.” McNeil will be reporting directly to Michael Bodnar, president of Security Partners. “Tom is the ideal person to oversee our national sales campaign,” Bodnar said. “Tom has a strong understanding of the value of team, and is a fierce competitor. Tom’s focus, drive and consistent ability to win will translate into an incredible Vice President of Sales for Security Partners.” McNeil, who has worked in the security industry since 2002, was most recently at United Central Control, where he was a national account director. He has also done business development for CMS Criticom, managing a 13-state territory, as well as coordinated sales at Honeywell Security, Westec Interactive, Gelco Information Network and ADT.
