Safety Vision, a provider of mobile video surveillance technology, announced the appointment of Alan Mann as director of sales for the company’s driver behavior modification solution, which currently centers on the two-camera windshield-mounted SafeDrive MiniDVR event recorder but will expand to include other multicamera and DVR platforms. Mann joined the Houston-headquartered surveillance technology firm in April and is based in southern California, bringing the number of Safety Vision satellite offices to eight.
Mann’s track record includes progressive sales results with high-technology companies including Data General, Sun Microsystems and DriveCam, having directly managed 80 sales representatives in achieving more than $200 million in business. As vice president of sales, Mann was instrumental in growing and leading the DriveCam sales force for 6 years, during which time the company saw sales increase from 2,000 units annually to more than 30,000 units annually. Most recently, Mann was vice president of sales for SleepSafe Drivers, providing sales and marketing leadership for the provider of sleep apnea testing and treatment solutions.
“We are energized by Alan’s arrival and enthused by his vision of the future,” says Rex Colorado, Safety Vision’s vice president of sales Rex Colorado. “Nobody’s worked in the driver behavior modification industry longer, and nobody knows fleet managers’ safety performance needs better. And he’s convinced that our SafeDrive MiniDVR exception reporting and event recording solution is precisely what they want. As with all our mobile surveillance solutions, we are focused on helping our customers reduce risk, cut costs, improve operations and save lives. Alan will be key to helping us deliver those benefits to myriad fleets across the geographic and mobile landscapes.”
