Votaw joins the team at their Coppell, Texas, location as Senior Vice President and General Manager, responsible for all aspects of the business.
Tim has considerable go-to-market experience, with integrated technology solutions, in his prior roles with Par Technology, Apple, Honeywell and Iomega.

Effective June 3, Votaw will lead the company’s American Locker division, reporting to Frederick Cook, Chief Executive Officer.
“We are very enthusiastic about having Tim join our team,” says Cook. “Tim has proven himself time and again as a true leader for companies like ours with complex, multi-tiered channel and distribution environments.”
Votaw has a history of success during his career, having been at the executive level across the spectrum from start-up to Fortune 1000. It’s that range of experience that will be easily applied to addressing the diverse and varied needs of American Locker’s customers.
“Bringing Tim onboard is a vital strategic move for our evolving organization,” notes Andrew Cashin, the company’s Chief Financial Officer. “As our organization has grown rapidly, we found the need to augment our team with proven leadership from an accomplished and experienced leader who understands the complexities of our unique operations. Tim will be utilizing his experience in the development of performance management processes, enablement tools, and revenue cycle management to properly motivate our selling teams, and achieve and sustain results.”
