Ahern Welcomes Annis as Director of Service for Fire Protection Districts

Tuesday, November 10, 2015

Ahern recently hired experienced sales professional Rod Annis as Director of Service for the Company’s fire protection district offices. Annis will be responsible for service sales growth and development in the five Ahern Fire Protection offices in Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, and Nebraska. He will also oversee the sales function within Ahern’s Fire Systems and Equipment (FSE) business unit across all territories.

Annis brings nearly 15 years of sales and management experience to his position. During his career, he has successfully progressed through positions of sales representative, account executive, and account manager. He most recently served as the Great Lakes Area Sales Manager for Tyco Integrated Security.

As Director of Service, Annis will work with Ahern Fire Protection District Managers and their teams to create and execute service sales plans and further develop relationships with general contractors as well as end users. He, along with FSE Vice President Doug Lackey, will be responsible for integrating Ahern’s non-sprinkler product lines – including fire alarms, special hazards systems, and fire extinguishers – into each district’s service offerings.

Annis will be building on Ahern’s already strong foundation in facility service and maintenance. The Company currently employs over 130 licensed or certified service technicians across its territories, and has inspected nearly 35,000 facilities in the last 18 months.
