When Tyler Ebnet joined CEC’s team earlier this year, we knew good things would soon follow.
For starters, Tyler brings with him more than 15 years of sales, process improvement, technology, and team development experience. His expertise is already helping CEC better support its customers, sales teams, and technology suites.
Better yet, he excels at creating streamlined processes that ultimately improve customer experiences and help our talented sales experts find answers to challenging productivity, safety, and communications questions. As the vice president of sales and marketing, Tyler ensures that you get the innovative, profitable solutions you need.
As he transforms many of our sales initiatives and practices – and we hope you’ll notice the difference it makes! – we wanted to help our customers get to know him a little better. Meet Tyler Ebnet!

A: 1) Challenging, 2) engaging, and 3) teamwork
Q: Which CEC initiative can you not wait to tackle?
A: Our customers are starting to acquire technology solutions differently than they have in the past. I’m really excited to create as-a-service models for our technology solution sets, including AV, fire and security, IT, healthcare communications, and two-way communications.

A: I spend time riding horses, which has been a hobby of mine since I was young. I also enjoy riding bike trails around Iowa, and my wife and I like to do construction projects.
