Jill Read Named National Sales Director for Impact Security

Impact Security, a nationally recognized manufacturer of forced-entry, bullet resistant and specialty retrofit glazing products, has announced the appointment of Jill Read to National Sales Director. Read brings more than a decade of sales and marketing experience to Impact Security.

Over the course of her career, Read has worked with large national retailers, restaurants, commercial contracts, architects, and project managers. Additionally, she has worked alongside several school districts in both Texas and Tennessee from building renovations and maintenance to glass and framing systems.

“The leaders at Impact Security have built an incredible team to help business owners, loss prevention teams and, most importantly, school boards understand how to best protect what’s most important,” said Jill Read of her new position. “I look forward to advancing this cause to make our schools, stores, and everything in between safer for everyone.”

In her previous role at Binswanger Glass, Read had the opportunity to offer Impact Security’s flagship product, DefenseLite®, to her national customers, making her uniquely qualified to lead the sales division of Impact Security.

“As a glass industry professional, I was skeptical about placing any product over storefront or curtainwall glass,” said Read. “After training with the DefenseLite team and fully understanding the meticulous engineering behind the DefenseLite products, I was excited to introduce it as an elite security solution to my national customers, especially retailers. DefenseLite’s engineering prowess and innovative culture was a win in my book.”

Read will take her first-hand experience to energize and direct the sales division how to best serve clients across the multitude of industries Impact Security serves.

“We’re so excited that Jill has joined the team at Impact Security,” said Mark Mineer, President of Impact Security.  “Her unique perspective, as well as her many years of experience, will be a huge benefit to Impact Security as the company continues to grow. And the timing of her joining the team couldn’t be better, as we just launched CaseShield™. As CaseShield was developed to help retailers protect their merchandise from smash-and-grab crime, Jill’s experience working with the retail industry adds even greater value to her new leadership role.”
