In a previous life Adam spent many years in the wireless industry helping clients adopt and implement new technologies in the mobile device space. In his free time, he can be found coaching youth basketball and lacrosse.

Outside of the office, Sam enjoys relaxing with his family at the lake, diligently completing tasks on his handyman "honey-do list" and taking his motorcycle out for a summer ride.

Karen Helland

Account Executive
Karen joined the RJS team in January of 2011 as an entry-level sales representative assisting the security, management and software departments. As a self-starter and eager learner, she has quickly advanced at RJS and has found a home as an Account Executive for RJS Smart Security. Karen graduated with honors from Minnesota State University, Mankato and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. During her free time she mentors young women as a volleyball coach.

Leigh Reimers

Technical Engineer
If RJS Smart Security employed “The Most Interesting Man in the World,” one could argue our very own Network Security Engineer, Leigh Reimers, just might fit the bill. Leigh is a black-belt karate master and former United States Army tough guy. A “jack-of-all-trades,” Leigh often assists with product installation and support on the off-chance he isn’t solving more complex security conundrums as a certified Sophos Advanced Sales and Technology Engineer.

Josh Williams

Marketing Manager
A proud graduate of Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota, Josh develops and manages all marketing initiatives for RJS Smart Security. He also serves as Editor-in-Chief of our blog and regularly contributes RJS Smart Security news and interesting technology notes. Prior to joining RJS, Josh worked at the Ronald McDonald House in Minneapolis where he was a finalist for the American Marketing Association's "Non-Profit Marketer of the Year." Outside of work, Josh enjoys the outdoors, fantasy football, classic movies, baseball and wine.
