With More than 20 Years of Experience, Rosen Brings Extensive Knowledge of both Field Operations and Sales Processes to his New Role

CHICAGO--()--Protection 1, the premier full-service business and home security company in the U.S., today announced that it has hired Ken Rosen to serve as its new Vice President of Residential Sales, reporting to Chief Revenue Officer Jamie Haenggi.

“I am excited to welcome Ken to the Protection 1 team. He has a strong sales background and is a dynamic leader that brings a wealth of experience and energy to drive our field organization,” said Haenggi. “At Protection 1, we pride ourselves on our reputation of excellence in the marketplace and Ken will contribute to that by growing our residential brand while engaging our current residential team and creating new opportunities for those looking at Protection 1 to start their careers.”

Rosen began his career in the security industry in 1996 as a Regional Director of Sales at ADT and has held multiple leadership positions throughout his career including General Manager, District General Manager, and most recently, National Director of Dealer Sales.

As an industry professional with 20 years of experience, he has extensive knowledge in field operations and sales processes and has personally mentored 20 sales managers and implemented Sales Excellence Programs for over 400 sales professionals.

In addition to working for ADT, Rosen has also held sales and general management positions with Johnson Control, Tyco and Monitronics. While at Monitronics, he ran an independent sales force of dealers which was responsible for doubling the company’s revenue in less than five years. This growth was supported by a strong operations and finance team which he leveraged to maximize high retention rates with both dealers and consumers.

Prior to joining Protection 1, Rosen again worked for ADT where he served as National Director of Dealer Sales. In this role, he was responsible for all of ADT’s dealer recruiting and development efforts. In less than three years, his team added over 120 dealers and grew new dealer production significantly.

“I decided to join the Protection 1 team due to the organization’s consistent growth and success. The focus on employee engagement and customer experience are perfectly aligned with my core leadership values,” stated Rosen. “I look forward to using my positive energy, personal accountability, and strong work ethic to engage our sales teams to continue to deliver the world class service that separates Protection 1 from the rest of the industry.”
