Kyla Bartle is a territory account manager for Koorsen Fire & Security, the largest privately owned company in the US of its kind, offering fire and life safety products, installation and service. Koorsen has kept homes and businesses safe for more than 65 years, she points out.
“My job as a territory account manager,” says Kyla, “allows me to do what I love! I am blessed with the opportunity to give my clients the best customer service they deserve along with helping them be certain they are completely covered in their fire and life safety needs. I care very much about my customer’s peace of mind and the relationship that we build together. I am happy to work for such a great company that allows me to do whatever needs to be done to offer the best business partnership with our customers!”
According to Kyla, every year, at least 70,000 U.S. workplaces experience a serious fire—adding up to property losses that total more than $2 billion. “Keeping your home or workplace safe means more than fire protection, and so we offer total protection that extends to monitoring, service, and security. In short: We keep lives and properties safe.”
“I sell fire safety products but I really focus more on inspection plans for fire extinguishers, fire alarm systems, sprinkler systems, kitchen fire suppression systems, clean agent suppression systems, etc.,” explains Kyla who has been with Koorsen for two years. “I also offer security systems and monitoring. I can assist building owners in making sure their buildings are up to NFPA standards and will pass a building inspection if they were to have a surprise visit from a fire inspector or an insurance company. I offer this service for free.”
She says Koorsen, with its five state locations, “offers one stop shopping for all fire safety needs.” Her unique selling point is “One point of contact for my customers—ME!”
Although Kyla works by appointments from 8-5 daily, she is available by phone for emergencies 24 hours daily. She says “be yourself and treat your customers like family.”
A past BNI member, she is now an active member of a local networking group, Community Business Connections, aka CBC Group. She also is a member of Yorktown Chamber, Muncie-Delaware County Chamber and Henry County Chamber.
The Yorktown resident says, “I do love my community and communities I serve. You will find me at any given networking event as I love to mingle with fellow community fans. I have a special place in my heart for not-for-profit organizations that serve our communities. I typically will volunteer to work at fund-raising events as a way to support their cause or organize an event at work that involves our employees. Most recently, I organized a food drive at work for Second Harvest Food Bank and I was a server at Texas Roadhouse in Anderson for the United Faith Housing benefit in June.”
The past Muncie Children’s Museum Guild member loves organizing parties and events.
Outside activities top her favorite list. Parents of Alexis, 15, and Brooklyn, 7, she and husband David love going to concerts and sporting events. “Our goal is to always obtain a meet and greet and also to get autographs to display on our game room walls,” says Kyla. Rounding out the family are Pumpkin and Baby Girl, both cats.
Kyla has an associate’s degree in accounting and management. Previously Kyla worked in banking for 15 years and then was development director for Muncie Downtown Development.
