Comtech Telecommunications promoted Timothy Jenkins to president of its safety and security technologies product group, effective June 1.

Jenkins has been with Comtech for more than three years, joining the company through its 2019 acquisition of the state and local government next-generation 9-1-1 business from General Dynamics Information Technology. Most recently, he has served as group vice president and general manager within the safety and security technologies organization, leading the implementation of next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) capabilities for customers across the United States. Jenkins has been involved in the public-safety and 9-1-1 industry for more than 28 years, serving in leadership positions at Ameritech, SBC Communications and Intrado.

Kent Hellebust, the current president of Comtech’s safety and security technologies product group, will be retiring as of May 31, after serving in the role since April 2018. This culminates Hellebust’s decade of service at Comtech after joining in January 2012 and holding a variety of leadership roles related to the 911 business.

“Tim has played a key role in the growth and development of our next-generation 9-1-1 product line,” said Comtech President and CEO Mike Porcelain. “He has been an invaluable contributor to the organization, leading customer operations and support. I look forward to Tim’s continued leadership and contributions to Comtech as he assumes the role of president. We want to thank Kent for his outstanding leadership, significant contributions and dedicated commitment to Comtech throughout his distinguished career. Kent has worked diligently to lead, support and grow our next-generation 9-1-1 product line throughout his time at Comtech. We wish Kent the very best as he retires and moves into the next chapter.”
