Frank McCathran has joined Leesburg-based Omnilert as the company’s vice president. He will be responsible for sales, marketing, and customer success initiatives.
Previously, McCathran was the director of enterprise solutions at Earth Networks-WeatherBug, where he spent 13 years developing and implementing enterprise solutions to help organizations improve safety, enhance operational efficiencies, and mitigate risk.
“We were looking for an experienced leader who shares the same passion for our mission as our team,” CEO Ara Bagdasarian stated. “Frank’s success in our industry has shaped an empathetic perspective that will help drive the success of our growing customer community. Now that he is part of our team, we look forward to introducing Omnilert with best practices into new markets.”
Omnilert’s focus on providing app-based public safety services was attractive to McCathran.
“Having the opportunity to help others in a time of need via the use of life safety technologies is what makes me tick,” McCathran said. “Personally, I come from a long family line of law enforcement officials—from my father and grandfather all the way back to my great, great grandfather. Whether it is nature or nurture, having the opportunity to help make first responders more successful and provide them with increased peace of mind is woven into my DNA.”
