DULUTH, Ga.—Systems integrator Tech Systems Inc., based here, is actively working to expand its business in Canada and has hired Antoinette Modica as GM of TSI Canada to work with current TSI Canadian customers and to oversee the expansion across the country.

Modica is based in Toronto. Before joining Tech Systems, Modica held management roles with Mitsubishi Electric Sales, Samsung Techwin, and Panasonic, all in Canada.

Daryl Keeler, TSI founder, CEO and chairman of the board told Security Systems New in an email interview that "TSI has been providing onsite service to clients across the U.S. for several years along with project management and professional services on a global level. As our clients have expanded and/or have requested our support in Canada we performed a significant amount of due diligence."

"After much careful planning we are in the position to provide our FOCUS Support Services in Canada. The first step was to find the right leader for that initiative and Antoinette was the answer," Keeler said. "We look forward to continuing to grow our presence and deliver our client centric services to the Canadian market."

Tech Systems recently became an ESOP; in November, Wayne Smith was named president of the company.

In a prepared statement, Modica said: "I lead with the mindset that we need to provide a customer-first attitude, and ensure that we all do our best to not give up on any challenge or presented task. The end goal is our customers' satisfaction."

"With my 35-plus years of experience in business, which includes 25-plus years in the security industry, I focus on doing the right thing, while using best practices. On the customer relations side, building and cultivating strong relationships both internally and externally is crucial. Listen to your clients' needs, try your best to deliver and the result is a strong network of clients," she added.
