Leading control and automation manufacturer RTI announced today it is elevating its North America channel support with the hire of Randy Logan as Channel Management Director. In this newly created role Logan will focus on developing and managing RTI’s distribution partners to benefit all integrators working with RTI control solutions.

“We are fully committed to supporting our channel partners, helping them deliver the solutions and service in the territories where our partners have incredible relationships with their RTI dealers,” said RTI Chief Executive Officer Joe Roberts. “There is no better channel manager than Randy, especially in developing creative marketing programs that drive business for our distributor partners.”

Logan will be the point person for RTI distribution partners, many with which he has long relationships from his years in the industry. Prior to joining RTI, he was Director of Channel Marketing at Nortek Security & Control and before that, at Core Brands. Starting his career in computers and software, he has a strong retail background and has been the driver behind multiple national and global product launches.

“I am thrilled to join the team at RTI, working in this industry I love,” said Logan, “Everyone at RTI shares my customer-first philosophy, and with the new RTI Music and especially the new Integration Designer 11, we’re creating more opportunities than ever for integrators to deliver exceptional solutions with RTI.”

The RTI Inside Sales, Field Sales, and Sales Engineering teams, led by National Sales Director Jim Koenig will continue to grow and support RTI dealers. “Our goal is to be the best partner for everyone doing business with RTI,” concluded Roberts. “Randy’s joining the team helps us achieve this goal.”
