BearCom Continues Canadian Acquisition Streak with Red Deer Dealer, Hires Notter
Thursday, March 15, 2018 | Comments

BearCom Group acquired Communications Group Red Deer in Red Deer, Alberta. Terms of the transaction were not announced. BearCom also hired Ken Notter to run the firm’s Canadian business.

The latest acquisition extends BearCom’s presence in western Canada, which began last December with the acquisition of Vector Communications in Grande Prairie, Alberta. In January, BearCom purchased Mobile Business Communications, which has four Canadian locations and a principal office in Toronto.

For more than 25 years, Communications Group Red Deer has provided communications solutions for voice and data. Communications Group Red Deer is a member of the RiiFT Wireless Group, an independent dealer network across Canada.

As an authorized dealer for Motorola Solutions and Kenwood, the company provides sales, rentals and services for two-way radios, and is an authorized Garmin dealer for GPS navigation systems in central Alberta. In addition, the company offers the latest TELUS cellular phones, as well as smartphones, satellite phones and data solutions.

“Welcoming Communications Group Red Deer to the BearCom family is a vital addition to our operations in western Canada,” said Mark Kroh, CEO of BearCom. “The combination of Communications Group Red Deer’s technical expertise, customer service and depth of portfolio to meet any customer’s wireless communication needs, fits squarely with BearCom’s core competencies. Communications Group Red Deer perfectly complements our business model and customer-first strategy.”

Current customers of Communications Group Red Deer will see the same levels of service and support, a statement said.

Last month, BearCom hired Notter as vice president and general manager of BearCom Canada. Notter is 35-year veteran of the wireless industry and has worked in the Canadian market in multiple roles since 1999. In his last role with Motorola Solutions, Notter served as vice president and director of sales, leading the Canadian channel business, as well as providing system strategy for the North America channel team.

“Ken’s responsibilities will include developing new opportunities that will bring incremental value to BearCom Canada and our partner community while also helping to deliver and execute on our strategic growth initiatives,” Kroh said.

BearCom also has more than 40 branch offices in the United States.
