ACRE strengthens management team with two key hires

LAS VEGAS—ACRE announced the addition of Jim Kelly as chief revenue officer starting on March 1, 2020, and Chuck O'Leary as president of Open Options, an ACRE company based in Addison, Texas.

Kelly brings a wealth of experience having had successful positions at Software House, Sensormatic, Tyco International and Johnson Controls. While at Software House, he led the sales and marketing efforts to build the business from $2 million to $120 million in North America. While at Johnson Controls, he was responsible for developing sales plans to achieve revenue goals for more than a dozen brands in the JCI Security Products division.

“Hiring Jim will add depth at the ACRE management level that can help catapult us to the next level,” ACRE CEO Joseph Grillo said in the announcement. “The ACRE brands have a well-established reputation for world-class service and support; therefore, Jim's focus will be to devise marketing, sales and channel strategies to accelerate the growth and build on the successes already achieved within the businesses.”

O'Leary's successful track record includes 25 years of sales leadership, including managing the sales organizations at Honeywell, Stanley Security Solutions and consistently leading the LenelS2 business to record results.

 “Chuck's sales and management skills are perfectly suited to assure Open Options achieves its goal of doubling the business over the next 5 years,” current Open Options President Steve Wagner said. “I look forward to working with him as we transition the leadership of this great company.”
