We are experiencing very solid sales growth in both the school and transit industry verticals, and I have strong confidence in Valarie’s ability to lead our growing sales team in the school industry segment. I’m equally excited about Jeff’s transition to a fully dedicated role in the transit industry segment. His account management expertise combined with the strength of our operation and engineering teams have showcased Gatekeeper’s ability to execute with large enterprise accounts. And with a growing sales funnel that includes potential alliances with partners who have global reach in the transit industry, the time was perfect to make this move.
