Rockford has also recently added several key positions to the safety and security group, including JF Cleroux, director of product development; Orlando Sanchez, vehicle application technician; and Brad Marvin, marketing product specialist, to strengthen the company’s Crimestopper team.
“As the Crimestopper business continues to grow, we have been implementing the overall brand strategy, which includes putting together a comprehensive sales, marketing, and support team for this category,” explained Bill Jackson, Rockford Corp. president and CEO. “As meeting the needs of our customers is always a fluid process, we now have the key people in place to meet that goal and to move Crimestopper forward with these strong additions to the Rockford family.”
Klement, Crimestopper national sales manager, started in consumer electronics sales at the retail level working for Audio Express in North Carolina where he progressed through the ranks to store manager and eventually general manager of the 13-store chain.

He started in 1996 at Code Alarm and was most recently with Epsilon. “Ronnie also has a ton of experience in the security and remote starts category, which makes him an ideal Crimestopper sales manager,” Jackson concluded.
