Open Options expands sales team
Open Options has promoted key management personnel and has added new team members to accommodate continued growth.
Jonathan Berman — who started his career with Open Options in 1999 — has been promoted to President and General Manager. Berman started out in product management and sales support, shortly thereafter moving into the sales role where he recruited dealers throughout the country. As Open Options and the sales force grew over the years Jonathan took on a sales leadership role serving as Vice President of Sales and Business Development.
Ben Vestal has been promoted to Vice President of Sales and Business Development. He most recently served Open Options as RSM for the Texas Region and has earned the achievement of top sales for six years in a row. Vestal, who just celebrated his 10th anniversary with Open Options, started off as Materials Manager and quickly worked his way up and has proven to be a leader in the organization.
Scot Sturges has been named as Regional Sales Manager for the Texas Region. Sturges has been with Open Options for over seven years and previously served as RSM for the Midwest United States. He has been based out of Open Options headquarters in Texas and is the perfect candidate to take over the top market given his successful track record in the Midwest region.

Cosgrove has a wealth of sales experience with leading security companies including Brivo Systems, Red Hawk Fire & Security, Alarm Detection Systems, Simplex Grinnell, and ADT Security Services.
