Allegion puts spotlight on hospitality sector with new appointment
Allegion has announced the appointment of Stefan Kobewka as Area Sales Manager for its CISA Hotel Locking Solutions brand, in a move which highlights the growing importance of the hospitality sector to the leading provider of safety and security products, formerly known as Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies.
With more than 20 years of sales and business development experience, Stefan will be covering the south of England and Wales.
With a product portfolio including the CISA eSIGNO range which includes a contactless lock, outdoor electronic cylinder and hospitality safe, Stefan's remit is to work closely with independent hotels, small and large hotel groups, and hotel management companies to provide a security technology solution that fits their specific requirements.
According to Paul Taylor, UK Sales Leader for CISA Hotel Locking Systems at Allegion, Stefan's appointment comes at a key time for the hospitality industry. "Hotel security has evolved over time from mechanical lock and key systems to electronic access control systems, and as access technology continues to become more sophisticated, it is incredibly important to build a team of highly experienced sales professionals who have an invaluable knowledge of security systems and can communicate this clearly to clients.
"Stefan is able to relate to the individual requirements and experiences of both hoteliers and their patrons; and as such, he is well placed to provide clients with sound advice and the right security solution for their business. He has already proven to be passionate about the Allegion and CISA product portfolio, and I would like to welcome him to the team and wish him every success in his new role."
Stefan added: "I was thrilled to join Allegion as its brands, products, technical expertise and heritage are second to none. I am looking forward to helping to strengthen the reputation of CISA Hotel Locking Solutions in the UK, while I continue to build relationships in the hospitality sector."
