Meridian Introduces New Vice President of Sales

Aberdeen, NC –  August 28, 2017 – Meridian Kiosks has named self-service industry expert,  Karla Guarino as Vice President of Sales. “Having someone that has this depth of industry expertise is invaluable to the company,” said Meridian founder and CEO, Chris Gilder.

“She understands the immense value of our capabilities and has the experience to effectively demonstrate that value to our partners and customers.”


Guarino brings with her over 20 years of self-service industry experience in both kiosk and digital signage hardware, software and turnkey solutions. “I’ve been through the ups and downs and pains of change in a very evolving industry,” said Guarino. “We’re now able to see and recognize that the world is ready for self-service technology, and it’s exciting to be with a company like Meridian that’s able to provide the highest quality technology in such a meaningful way.”


As Vice President of Sales, Guarino will guide the sales strategy and lead Meridian’s sales team. “I’m hoping that my background in technical consulting can really help strengthen Meridian’s message and shine a spotlight on our capabilities, of which most of the industry may not know about or understand.”


Guarino’s understanding of self-service technology provides an added element of experience to new projects. The new Vice President of Sales joins the team as Meridian positions itself to expand even further into the global self-service marketplace. “I would consider Meridian to be the best-kept secret in the self-service industry,” said Guarino. “I recognize the advantages of owning the entire manufacturing process. I’m able to walk outside of my office and see the complete fabrication, assembly and integration of kiosks happen continually. It’s very rare in this industry.”


As CEO and Vice President of Sales, Gilder and Guarino have established a mutual vision for company growth and understanding of industry direction. “We’re really just scratching the surface of where self-service is going, and teaming with like-minded individuals at Meridian is the most exciting part for me.”
