Industry Veterans HiredKAYSVILLE, UT Feb. 5, 2015 — Grant Victor announces recent additions in two of its companies, OptConnect and ATMequipment.com. The additions comprise veterans in the ATM and wireless telecommunications space and represent an investment in ongoing growth for the two companies. Todd Hallenbeck and Wayne Vandekraak have joined OptConnect, and Bill Dunn has joined ATMequipment.com.

Vandekraak is an ATM industry veteran, actively involved in the retail ATM industry since 1999. In 2004 he founded Solvport, a leading ATM service company acquired by Burroughs, Inc. in 2012. He has most recently served as a VP of Business Development for Burroughs, Inc. Vandekraak’s wealth of experience and personal connections in the ATM industry is considered a valuable asset as a Business Development Manager for OptConnect.

“OptConnect has made significant investments in its products and support systems to provide a great quality of service to customers using wireless solutions,” noted Vandekraak. “Its great to be part of a company that is so innovative and values the customer experience so highly.”

Todd Hallenbeck has over 20 years of experience in the cellular industry, working for Verizon Wireless. Specializing in data and machine-to-machine (M2M) products, his talents are key to OptConnect’s rapid expansion plans.

Commented Hallenbeck, “Looking beyond ATM wireless service, OptConnect has huge opportunities to service the needs of other vertical markets. M2M will grow exponentially over the next several years, and I believe OptConnect has the right systems and people in place to service those industries.”

The growth continues at OptConnect’s sister company, ATMequipment.com. Long time industry veteran and thought leader Bill Dunn has joined the ATMequipment.com workforce. Dunn’s influence in the industry runs deep as a former co chair of ATMIA, the largest ATM association, and VP of Sales at Hantle/Tranax/Cross International.

“It’s great to be part of ATMequipment.com as they expand their reach in the retail and financial institution ATM marketplaces. I am happy to be part of an organization that has demonstrated such industry leadership and also is so dedicated to the success of their customers.” noted Dunn.

Grant Victor CEO Jeff Matthews commented on the recent hires, “We welcome these three wonderful additions to the Grant Victor team, and eagerly anticipate the positive impact they will have with our customers and partners.”
