BTX Announces Appointment of Industry Veteran Frank Brady as Representative Channel Manager

HAWTHORNE, N.Y. Aug. 30, 2007 BTX Technologies, Inc. today announced the appointment of industry veteran Frank Brady to the position of representative channel manager. Brady's role is to complete the company's manufacturer representative channels in the commercial A/V, home cinema, and security markets, as well as to maximize existing manufacturer representative participation in the promotion and sales of BTX products.

In addition, the company is committed to developing the expertise of its employees through training and certification programs to give its customers the best products and service. This is a winning combination."
