The appointment fortifies and expands the company’s reach, providing a greater platform to meet increasing industry demand for service.


Erdman, who broke into the industry while employed as a general staffing specialist, spent a decade at Sentrynet earning the title of National Sales Director. Following Sentrynet, he was hired as an Account Executive at COPS furthering his vast industry experience within the Southeast region of the country.  


Kurtis is an outstanding leader with a proven track record of building customer partnerships, developing high performing sales teams and creating a winning culture,” said Sharon Elder, Vice President of Sales. “His knowledge, strong analytical skill set, and natural ability to create lasting and positive relationships within the industry, make him a great fit for this role.”


The choice to join the team at NMC was a clear one, according to Erdman.


I’m happy to be joining such a well-respected organization, and to expand the company’s footprint into the South Eastern region,” he stated. “NMC is an industry-leading company with a long-standing reputation for serving the dealer with customizable options and adapting to customer needs, rather than making the customer fit rigid offerings.”

NMC is the perfect fit for me, in size, offerings, philosophy of service, and willingness to position themselves as a leader in forward-thinking technological offerings. The company’s video monitoring capability, for example, is a real game changer that gives dealers a huge edge. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to join a team known for putting dealers and subscribers first and look forward to supporting dealers throughout the eastern region.”

The Monitoring Association and Security Sales & Integration recognizes NMC with top honor of “best adoption of new technology to advance your business”.


NMC is extremely honored to announce that it has just been selected as the 2018 Marvel Award winner, co-sponsored by The Monitoring Association (formerly CSAA) and Security Sales & Integration.
