A team of former executives from Pelco, a manufacturer of video security products, have started a product marketing, engineering and process management consulting company called Clovis-Associates, based in the Clovis/Fresno, California area. While this is a new firm, it draws on decades of experience and proven sales, marketing, manufacturing, engineering and operations success within the video and security industry.
Clovis-Associates' understanding of the security market positions them to help manufacturers and investors in developing winning product strategies as well as solutions for marketing, sales and customer service.
Dave Smith, former Marketing VP; Bill Arbuckle, former Engineering VP and Joe Olmstead, former Director of Marketing Communications and a network of other professionals have banded together to help global companies succeed in the multibillion dollar security and surveillance markets.
"Clovis Associates is a product and business development resource focused exclusively on the electronic security industry,” Smith said. “With the typical client/business consultant relationship, a great deal of time and money is spent educating the consultant on the dynamics and needs of the market. By specializing in the products and markets we know, we can provide value right from the beginning. We minimize the learning curve, and can get right down to attacking the problem.”
