MAHWAH, N.J.—Nationwide wholesale security distributor eDist Security has promoted Nick Scarane to president. 

The plan, Scarane said, is to continue growing, expanding eDist’s IP camera, fire products, access control and intrusion offerings, while also maintaining the company’s technologically savvy customer support.

Scarane has spent 30 years in wholesale security, 14 of them with eDist Security, which is based here and markets and ships security technology products from more than 250 vendors to all 50 states. The company has seven locations across the country, Scarane said. 

“What sets us apart is that my team is made up of employees who’ve been with me for 20, 25 years,” Scarane said. “Our expertise is in being a very hands-on, very technical staff and knowing our distributors. This team is very tech savvy, very customer service oriented.” 

The company sends products out the same day and customizes its inventory to meet customers’ needs, said Scarane. 

Scarane replaces former president Quinn Ruelle, who is now CEO. As the company’s executive vice president, Scarane said he had already assumed many of the responsibilities he has as president—overseeing sales, marketing and operations.

“This is something we’ve been talking about,” said Scarane, of the recent management moves. “It’s been in our game plan.”

Further growth is part of that plan as well. “We plan to continue to expand. We look at markets all the time,” Scarane said. Historically, the company has grown organically, but Scarane said if the opportunity for an appropriate acquisition arose, eDist wouldn’t rule out a buy.
