FAIR LAWN, N.J., May 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Henry Bros. Electronics, Inc. , a turnkey provider of technology-based integrated electronic security solutions, today announced the appointment of John Seckman as General Manager of its Colorado Region replacing Jeffrey Marcus who is leaving to pursue other interests. Additionally, the Company has changed the name of its Colorado-based subsidiary from Securus, Inc. to Henry Bros. Electronics, Inc. These changes are effective immediately.
Seckman brings thirty years of management experience within the security industry, having held positions in law enforcement, corporate security, and security integration. Prior to joining Henry Bros., Seckman served as Vice President of ISR Solutions, a national security integration firm, where he helped to transform the company's Denver office into the largest and most profitable ISR office in the country. In his role as Vice President, Seckman put together the two largest projects in ISR's history.
Seckman has also served as an Executive Vice President with Info Graphic Systems Corp, where he negotiated the national OEM relationship between Info Graphics and Siemens (Cerberus), accounting for over 30% of company sales. Additionally, Seckman was instrumental in the founding and development of eColorado Systems, Integrated Security Control Systems, Inc., Security Systems International and Security Control Corporation.
Jim Henry, Chief Executive Officer of Henry Bros., said, "We are very pleased to have added a candidate of John's caliber to our Colorado team. John has an entrepreneurial spirit like few individuals that I have ever encountered, and brings decades of managerial experience in our industry. He knows the area well and has built strategic relationships over the years that will undoubtedly benefit our company."
Henry continued, "We would also like to thank Jeff Marcus for his many years of dedicated service to the Company and wish him well in his new endeavors. Bringing John in to lead the Colorado region comes at a very significant time for our Company. With this appointment, we are also changing the name of the Colorado region from Securus, Inc., to Henry Brothers Electronics Inc., as we have fully integrated this business into our portfolio of security operations to bring to the market one of the country's most comprehensive integrated security companies. With a broad national footprint, we are serving markets that present the most vital need for security solutions. We believe that we will continue to see strong growth from our Colorado region as more and more large agencies and enterprises turn to Henry Bros. to solve their various security needs."
Henry Bros. acquired Securus, Inc., a privately held Colorado-based security systems integrator in October 2005. Since acquiring the company, Henry Bros. has worked on several large security projects in the Colorado area, including Ball Corporation, Centura/St. Francis Medical Center, Hostpera, Beaver Creek Resorts and the Jefferson County Courthouse.
