Within the new role, Perez will be responsible for the oversight of new features and app rollouts under Ella. Additionally, Perez will oversee operations and staffing within the Ella intelligent video search division of IC Realtime.
“Jorge is a passionate, focused, and results-driven sales leader with years of experience in software as a service application as well as commercial and residential security systems, CCTV, and integration,” said Matt Sailor, CEO for IC Realtime. “His reputation within the industry speaks for itself and we’re very excited he’s joined the IC Realtime team as the head of our Ella department at a time when the industry is ripe for innovation.”
Prior to joining IC Realtime, Perez was a co-founder of an ADT authorized dealer in South Florida that grew into one of the top 10 dealers within the nation. He also has worked for Edison Security where his responsibilities included oversight of all aspects of sales, marketing, operations, and administration of offices across multiple offices throughout southern Florida. As national sales director for Salesgenine.com Perez led national enterprise sales within the home security division, which included management of corporate locations and dealer programs.
