Woodstock, GA, August 16, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Python Safety, Inc., the leading provider in Fall Protection for Tools™ safety solutions for the utility and construction industries, today announced the continued explosive growth of the company. Python Safety has appointed Brian Lancaster as Vice President of North American Sales while also adding other sales and operations resources. In the past 12 months, Python Safety has grown the employee base 200% in an effort to keep up with the strong demand for its products.
Lancaster is responsible for Python Safety’s North American sales and distribution organization. He has held various executive sales management roles over the past 30 years, focusing on the growth of sales through distribution development strategies. Most recently, he was the Vice President of Sales for half of North America at Infor, the 3rd largest ERP software company in the world, focusing on manufacturing customers. Prior to Infor, Brian served in a similar role at SuccessFactors, a startup software-as-a-service company. During Brian’s tenure at SuccessFactors, the company completed a successful Initial Public Offering (IPO). Brian served in the United States Air Force for 8 years while obtaining his education through Barry University.
“Python Safety is an exciting company that is poised for strong growth in the market for the prevention of dropped objects,” said Lancaster. “The company’s industry-leading solutions are applicable to any industry that does work at height. We will continue to invest in growing our distribution strategy in order to meet the needs of the industry and our customers.”
“Brian brings the knowledge and experience to lead Python Safety to the next phase of sales growth,” said Mark Caldwell, chief executive officer for Python Safety. “We have seen tremendous acceptance due to the heightened sensitivity toward the prevention of dropped objects in many industries. We are committed to providing our distributors and customers with the highest quality, most innovative products and support by bringing on industry veterans like Brian to lead our sales team in the next phase of growth.”
Identifying the niche of Fall Protection for Tools™ in the utility and construction sectors has played an important role in driving Python Safety’s overall business growth in recent quarters. Industry regulations exist for the protection of people from falling, but no serious guidance exists for protecting individuals from dropped objects, the 4th highest cause of deaths in the workplace. Python Safety’s solutions uniquely address this major gap.
