Identive Group, which is cutting across the spectrum of identity management markets with their RFID-centric, Secure ID platforms, broke the news today that they have tapped 25-year security industry veteran and previously VP/GM of the company’s Access Control and Security division, Stephen Healy (BS in Business Management, Marketing and Finance, Westfield State University), for the company’s executive management team, where he will serve as the Exec. VP of Access Control and Security.
Healy will continue to manage INVE’s Physical Access Control operations where he has helped to make their HIRSCH brand of wide ranging, integrated security offerings an established industry standard for a global client-base that spans government and critical infrastructure, as well as education, enterprise, and healthcare. Healey had over 18 years with UTC Fire and Security under his belt already, doing sales management for their Kidde-Fenwal division, before he migrated to the now subsumed Hirsch Electronics that makes up INVE’s Access Control and Security division.
Chairman and CEO of the expansive INVE, Ayman S. Ashour, pointing to the last two years of dedicated service by Healy and assured shareholders that he was the ideal candidate for the role, possessing both the requisite in-depth knowledge of the security industry, as well as the creative ingenuity needed to break new ground in emergent control system areas like near field communication and cloud-based content delivery. There is a ton of revenue to be generated in high-security focused U.S. Government markets and Healy is just the guy to take access control solutions to the next level in this space for INVE, fusing rigorous protocols with intuitive/efficient designs that will please user and administrator alike.
Ashour made special note of how Healy has taken the reins when it comes to transitioning clientele to next-gen platform architectures and overseeing new product development, with particular adeptness shown in helping to handle a challenging budget environment in the U.S. Government sector, employing a combination of direct work with Federal agency customers and the opening up of more commercial territory, both at home and abroad. Healy’s proven capacity for expanding markets and bringing new solutions to the fore will serve INVE well as the company looks to grow their security market considerably this year and on into 2014.
