A global security manufacturer has further strengthened its team with the appointment of two industry experts focussed on strengthening the federal landscape.

With 65 years of industry experience, Jeff Fields and Paul Haake join Gallagher as Director and Senior Systems Engineer respectively.

A world of change

Fields and Haake will play a key role in leading the company’s new Federal Government Program.

Both new appointments expect that Gallagher’s program will lay a foundation that will ‘lead the way into a much wider change across verticals in the security industry’.

Fields commented: “There are so many changes from the cyber world coming by way of force. Right now, we’re being challenged at every corner from multiple countries continuing to push the envelope from a data and cybersecurity perspective.

“Compliance, and being able to meet specific certifications within the federal government, is going to cascade into other markets.

“Everyone is now taking a pathway to adopt the same protocols that the federal government is setting as standard.”

Bringing a new mindset

After learning more about the company’s PIV, Haake explained that he was amazed by Gallagher’s level of innovation and what the company was capable of delivering to market.

“From an industry perspective, we’ve got the tools, resources and products that can drive the industry to new heights. Our value proposition in creating this program is that we don’t see Gallagher as just an access control company.

“That just happens to be a product and service we provide, but we’re innovative and we’re an entire ecosystem that takes disparate products operating in their own shell and brings them into our single solution capable of achieving the results government bodies are looking for.

“That’s the mindset I’m bringing to our Federal team.”
