(Atlanta, GA) March 15, 2022 – CENTEGIX, a company dedicated to innovating technology to simplify and speed incident response time, announces the appointment of Dr. Roderick Sams to the position of Chief Development Officer.
Dr. Sams has two decades of experience as an educator and school administrator and experience in business roles in education-related technology companies and partnerships for education non-profits.
In his role at CENTEGIX, Dr. Sams’ priorities include business development and building strategic partnerships to broaden access to CrisisAlert, whose demand increased nearly 300% in 2021.
The award-winning CrisisAlert solution empowers staff with the fastest and easiest way for teachers and staff to call for help in emergencies from the every day to the extreme. CrisisAlert is unique for its ability to deliver precise alert location, immediate audio and visual incident notifications (including lighted strobes, screen messages, and intercom integration) for campus-wide incidents, and 100% full campus coverage. With the simple push of a button on a wearable badge, an alert instantly reaches administrators and responders. In fall 2021, CrisisAlert was used in more than 25,000 school emergencies and drills.
“During my time as an educator, I understood that for students to achieve their potential in the classroom, we must provide a safe environment,” said Dr. Sams. “I know from experience the challenges staff have in getting help in any kind of emergency, and the negative impact such diversions have on the learning environment.”
Dr. Sams’ responsibilities also include driving CENTEGIX’s strategies for diversity, equality, and inclusion initiatives. “We are honored to have Dr. Sams join the CENTEGIX Leadership team. He is well respected by educators nationwide. He will be a powerful voice as we connect with school districts and support their efforts of creating safe and productive learning environments,” said CENTEGIX CEO Brent Cobb. “In addition, Dr. Sams expertise on diversity, equity, and inclusion is valuable to our team members and customers.”
