Morganton, NC — MARCH 7, 2017- Effective Monday, March 13, Rob DeVaun will assume the position of North American Sales Director for Salamander Technologies, an OrangeHook Company. DeVaun has worked as Technical Sales Consultant and Salamander Specialist for Bridgeway Solutions for the last few years advancing the Salamander footprint across the Southeast. While Bridgeway Solutions is losing a key sales representative, DeVaun will continue his long-standing commitment to emergency management, incident command and the implementation of Salamander’s Intelligent Accountability™ suite across the U.S. He will maintain a supportive role for individual agencies and regions using the Solution, and will assist in the direction of sales and implementation within each territory.
“Rob isn’t really leaving us. As Adam Fray’s successor at Salamander Technologies, he will be tasked with helping us continue building upon the successes he, himself, helped drive in the Southeast over the past few years,” said David Lee, General Manager, Bridgeway Solutions. “His dedication, resourcefulness and work ethic will serve him well as he begins the next chapter of his career.”
“We are excited to be a part of Rob’s next chapter. Not only does Rob bring experience and success in managing state wide solutions, but he has the expertise to drive continued success with our channel partners,” said Robert F. Riess, COO/CMO - OrangeHook, Inc. “The additional support that Bridgeway has provided with this transition, in conjunction with Rob’s accomplishments, shows how dedicated our partners are to the solutions which Salamander provides”.
DeVaun joined Bridgeway Solutions in the fall of 2014 and quickly became the company’s driving force for the Salamander Solutions within the region. From DPRs in North Carolina, to state-wide adoption in South Carolina, and rapidly increasing adoption in Georgia and Virginia, DeVaun has worked closely with agencies large and small to find funding resources and implement the powerful incident command solution.
As of 2017, over 17,000 agencies have access to Salamander’s TAG, TRACK and REPORT Solution. From rescue efforts for Hurricane Matthew, to security personnel management for sporting events like the U.S. Open, the Salamander Solution has proven to be invaluable, with enabled real-time tracking of resources. Salamander’s latest editions allow responders to check-in as they are in route to an incident, commanders to know exactly who is on-scene and what their qualifications are, and when all is safely secured, to enable comprehensive reporting for maximum reimbursement from FEMA and other support agencies.
