LOS ANGELES, Aug. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- DTT, a leading provider of intelligent video-based surveillance and loss prevention services, today announced the expansion of its executive team. DTT is scaling the company to meet the increasing demand for its solutions with the appointment of key industry talents: Bob Ryan as Chief Sales Officer, Marc Litz as Chief Financial Officer, and Paul Campaniello as Chief Marketing Officer. The new executives join the existing team of Bill Savage as Chief Technology Officer and Mark Simson as Chief Operating Officer (promoted from CFO), as well as Chief Executive Officer Mike Coffey.
"We have an incredible mix of incoming and current DTT executives, with relevant experience in loss prevention, security, surveillance, technology, and scaling a business. Our collective focus is to continue to grow our leading products and services in a way that is most useful for customers," said Coffey. "We're absolutely thrilled to have executives of this caliber join DTT and help us focus on the customer experience."
As CSO, Bob Ryan is responsible for all commercial initiatives at DTT, including the sales and customer service functions. Ryan has over 20 years' experience in the industry and was most recently the Senior Vice President of Field Sales for Protection One. "I see my job as creating a more customer-centric sales organization, whose role is to provide businesses with loss prevention and technologies that make it easier for multi-location owners to operate their businesses," Ryan said. "Managing a store is difficult anywhere, and our job is to continue to make the ultimate service simple and map to a high ROI for the customer."
As CFO, Marc Litz oversees all financial reporting, planning, accounting and treasury activities of the company, and is responsible for developing DTT's overall financial strategy. In addition, Litz is responsible for the corporate HR and legal functions of DTT. He was previously CFO of Lionbridge, a publicly-traded technology company with $600 million in revenues, where he led a global finance organization and oversaw Lionbridge's successful sale to private equity investors. "My goal is to help DTT's finance organization, and all of DTT, become more operationally efficient, allowing the company to reinvest a greater share of its cash flow into product innovation, which will in turn help us accelerate our growth," said Litz. "As a result of this strategic reinvestment, DTT will be able to provide customers with more innovative and effective products, more self-service, and continue our leading services."
