Chris Guertler, BDM, Innotec Security.

INNOTEC Security has appointed Chris Guertler as business development manager based in Melbourne.

Guertler began his career in electronic security as an apprentice at Diebold working with access control, moved to Go Tech Security providing solutions for the banking sector and joined STS in 2013 working with Gallagher, Milestone and Jacques Intercoms.

In January 2015, Secom offered Guertler an internal promotion to learn sales estimating. From January 2017 through to May 2019, he was the dedicated account management and the estimator of Secom’s largest national client. Some of the major products he’s worked with include Gallagher, Integriti, Tecom, Concept, Milestone, FLIR, Genetec, Geutebrück, Axis, Allied Telesis, Jacques, Samsung, Hikvision, and more.

“Throughout secondary school, I was fixated on pursing information technology to the extent of being accepted in a Computer Science degree at university, however, a last-minute decision was made to pursue electronic security,” Guertler said.

“Having done the physical work out in the field and having that wealth of experience in the security industry, along with a fascination of IT that lies behind the way our industry is heading towards, has contributed to my role in sales. I’m ready to apply my enthusiasm to help Innotec Security grow.”

Innotec Security’s Rob Rosa said Guertler was a welcome addition to the technical team.

“Chris is a second-generation security industry with wide experience in security technologies and in high level integrations who was installing and supervising major systems for clients in the education and banking verticals as a 3rd-year apprentice,” Rosa said. “His knowledge and can-do attitude in areas like programming, training and sales significantly strengthens Innotec Security.”
