Terry has been with RACOM since 2001 and is responsible for all sales, marketing, and business development throughout RACOM. Some of his largest projects include the SARA P25 Systems across Iowa and into Illinois, the (Sprint-Nextel) rebanding of RACOM's 800 MHz network, and the establishment of RACOM as a Harris Regional Center of Excellence and Tait Master Distributor covering the western half of the United States.
Other areas of leadership include RACOM's turnkey implementation, maintenance and 24x7 monitoring of Iowa's E9-1-1 Shared Services project with Zetron and their MAX Call-Taking NextGen E911 solution. He has been a member of Zetron's Advisory Board for all control room solutions since 2011. Narrowbanding, which was completed by 2013, resulted in devastating coverage losses for fire departments and this led to a partnership with Swissphone to bring enhanced digital alerting solutions to the US. RACOM is a master distributor for the west and has led the nation's first Swissphone installations in several counties in Iowa.
