NASHVILLE, Tenn.—ADS Security, a division of Vector Security Inc., announced the promotion of Craig Leyers to president. Leyers succeeds John Cerasuolo, who is stepping down after serving as ADS President for the past 12 years.

“I’m honored to move into this role and continue to work with our teams to provide the best possible service to our customers,” Leyers told Security Systems News. “ADS Security has become a leader in this industry because not only do we have incredible technology, but we prioritize the needs of the communities we serve. I hope to continue to push that even further in this position.”

In his new role, Leyers is responsible for managing the ADS Business Unit, with branch operations reporting to him, as well as ADS marketing. He will report to Vector Security CEO Pamela J. Petrow.

“We are fortunate to have a team of great leaders within the ADS operation that will continue the legacy of exceptional customer service,” Petrow said. “Craig is very talented and we are confident he will successfully grow this business to the next level.”

Leyers served as the senior vice president of sales and marketing for ADS for more than six years, responsible for leading sales and marketing efforts across the Southeast. Prior to that, Leyers served as vice president and general manager for nearly six years. He joined ADS Security from AFL Telecommunications, where he held various positions during his 15-year tenure, including director of marketing communications and enterprise market manager.

“The new leadership team’s goal is to accelerate our continued growth,” Leyers said. “These changes will better take advantage of the larger Vector Security organization and focus on our legacy of growth.”

Headquartered in Pittsburgh, for nearly 50 years Vector Security has been providing a full suite of electronic security services for residential, business and national account customers across North America and the Caribbean through a network of branches, authorized dealers and their ADS Security division.
