Potter, US-based manufacturer of sprinkler monitoring devices, fire alarm systems, and corrosion solution products, has announced the hiring of Jeff Klein to the position of President of Fire & Security. Klein is joining Potter after previously working at Chamberlain Group in Chicago as their Vice President/General Manager of Commercial Business. Klein will be taking over for Dave Kosciuk, who will be moving into the role of Senior Vice President of Business Development before retiring at the end of 2020.
Klein received his BS degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania and his MBA from Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper School of Business. Prior to his time at Chamberlain, Klein held multiple roles at Honeywell Security and Fire’s North America division, including Vice President of Marketing and Senior Director of Integration.
Gerry Connolly, Chief Executive Officer at Potter said: “We are grateful for Dave Kosciuk’s 12 years of dedication to Potter. He grew our Fire and Security division exponentially and put us in a great position to continue as a leader in the industry. While we will miss Dave, I am very excited to have Jeff as our next President for our Fire and Security division. His extensive experience in both the fire industry and the commercial building technology sector will be a great asset to Potter as we continue to grow.”
