Denis Kelly and Robert Rogalski Accept Increased Responsibility in Key Leadership Positions

Executive Vice President Denis Kelly
RALEIGH, N.C., July 9, 2013—While many companies have reported increased business activity in recent months, few can compare to Sunstates Security. Since 2010 the Raleigh, N.C.,-based security firm has attained a compounded, organic growth rate of 30%. This achievement stands out in the private security industry, which typically relies upon mergers and acquisitions to fuel growth.

“I am very proud of what we have been able to accomplish,” says President Glenn Burrell, who joined Sunstates Security after serving 20 years in Scotland Yard. “In our industry, companies all too often lose sight of what’s important: the customer. A consequence of that short-sightedness is the need to grow via mergers and acquisitions, which often has a negative effect on customer service by diluting the corporate culture and philosophy.”

Further evidence of the company’s success can be seen in Sunstates’ client retention rate of 97% over the past decade—one of the highest in the industry.

To meet the demands of this growth, Sunstates has made two key structural changes, as of July 1, 2013:
• Vice President Denis Kelly has been promoted to Executive Vice President. In this new position, Kelly will oversee the firm’s operations, sales and marketing, as well Vice President of Operations Robert Rogalskias human resources.
• Director of Operations Robert Rogalski has been named Vice President of Operations, responsible for all field operations. Rogalski will also manage the corporate training and safety department.

“I am delighted to announce these promotions to key leadership positions,” says Burrell. “Both Denis and Robb have played an instrumental role in establishing Sunstates as one of the fastest-growing security services companies in the United States, and they will continue to provide quality leadership in the years to come.”
