(YORK, Pa) — TransGard LLC, a leading provider of animal-deterrent equipment to substations, announced today that William Marks has joined the company as its Director of Sales for the eastern U.S.
In his new position, Marks will service customers in South and North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, New York, New Jersey, and all of New England.
Marks brings more than 30 years of experience as a successful sales and management professional serving both national and regional level companies as a direct sales contributor, sales team leader, and senior manager. His base of operation will be in York, Pennsylvania.
TransGard provides proven animal-deterrent systems for the power distribution industry and other critical utility sectors. The company manufactures the only patented substation fencing that deters climbing animals by delivering a mild, non-lethal electric shock.
TransGard is also the exclusive distributor of the hi-tech Laser Bird Defense, which uses a concentrated beam of light to prevent birds from entering or roosting in electrical substations and other sites.
“We’re excited to gain Bill’s experience and passion for strategic selling and generating market growth,” said Greg Burkholder, TransGard’s CEO. “He has a proven track record of making strong sales decisions that will benefit our customers as well as our company. We look forward to his contributions and continued success with our team.”
TransGard has been protecting the electric power generation industry from animal incursions since the early 1990s, and in recent years has begun to expand animal-deterrent services into other sectors like manufacturing centers and the oil and gas industry.
