Meet Erik Klockemann, our new Business Development Manager — Visual Verification Division.

Erik joins OPTEX with 25 years of experience in the security industry. Before coming to OPTEX, the leader in sensing innovation, Erik built a strong career that began in operations, service, and installation for a prominent regional organization on the West Coast. It wasn’t long before Erik’s relationship-building and customer service skills shown themselves to equal his technical abilities, and the company moved him into sales. After 20 years with the same company, Erik found new opportunities, and moved east to become a national accounts manager for a well-known global integrator.

“We know that our next big growth area is going to be in visual verification with The OPTEX Bridge VVS and that is exactly why we brought Erik aboard. He is the perfect fit to focus on this solution. Erik is very well rounded, he has installed and sold all 4 disciplines in our industry; Intrusion, surveillance, access control, and fire. Erik is an invaluable addition to our growing division and I’m excited to have him on my team.”

Tommie Van Fossen – Director of Business Development, Visual Verification

Throughout his experience as a technician & installer, his transition to Executive Commercial Sales Representative, and most recently as a National Account Manager and Regional Commercial Sales Consultant, Erik’s journey has been filled with success and accolades. Erik’s even demeanor, professional approach to business development, relationship-building, channel management, and leadership skills make him a fantastic addition to OPTEX and a great resource for our customers and industry partners.

Please join us in welcoming Erik to OPTEX!
