Telkonet Inc. named Mark Rehwald as its new director of marketing. Telkonet’s business divisions include EcoSmart, which provides intelligent energy management products; and EthoStream, a high-speed Internet access provider.

Company officials said that Rehwald’s sales results with global manufacturers such as SPX Corp., Johnson Controls, and Siemens Industry will bring significant value to Telkonet's rapidly expanding EcoSmart energy management division. Rehwald has experience in developing multi-media marketing programs, having directed numerous global product roll-outs, as well as managing over 100 national and international trade shows.  

"In strategic discussions with the executive team at Telkonet, it's clear that we have a significant opportunity to become the solution for energy management in several billion-dollar markets," said Rehwald.  "I am very excited to be part of a young, growing company that already has a reputation for delivering progressive and front-line technology to its customers.  My objectives are focused on delivering dynamic marketing and sales initiatives to accelerate the growth of Telkonet's customer base and brand recognition."

Gerrit Reinders, executive vice president of Telkonet, believes the timing couldn’t be better for welcoming Rehwald.  

“His industry experience is a great asset for a quick ramp up to productivity,” he said. “With the recent addition of the EcoSmart Virtual Engineer to our advanced energy management portfolio, coupled with the market's acknowledgment that our technology is an incredible resource for energy savings and operational improvements, the future looks overwhelmingly positive."
