After rebranding earlier this year, launching the SafetySmart™ platform, and recently acquiring SafePointe, SoundThinking has expanded its leadership team to position itself for the expanding growth opportunities it believes it has ahead.

Greg Holifield, founder and CEO of SafePointe, has joined SoundThinking’s leadership team as Managing Director. SafePointe is an intelligent weapons detection system that provides secure, low-friction screening for workplaces, museums, schools, casinos, financial institutions, and hospitals.

New hires include:

Additionally, the Marketing and Product organizations will now be separated to provide senior leadership and focus in these two strategic areas.

  • Sam Klepper, previously SVP of Marketing and Product, has been named Senior Vice President, Product Management and Corporate Development. Sam has been instrumental in building the ShotSpotter and SoundThinking brands over the last 5 years and will now lead a dedicated team to help drive innovation and expand the SafetySmart platform. His previous experience includes roles at Intuit, Microsoft, eMeter and Bain Consulting.
  • Gregg Makuch, previously the Interim SVP of Marketing and Product, has been named Senior Vice President, Marketing. Gregg recently joined SoundThinking during Sam’s leave of absence and will now lead a dedicated team to embrace digital opportunities to further build awareness and drive demand for the SafetySmart platform. His previous experience includes roles at PricewaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte, RealNetworks, and aQuantive.

Finally, Nasim Golzadeh, in addition to her role as Managing Director of Technologic (formerly LEEDS), has been promoted to Executive Vice President, Engineering for Investigative Solutions. Nasim will bring her broad expertise and experience honed over 30 years managing complex engineering and service organizations. Her previous experience includes roles at Central Square and TriTech.
