There has been a change in leadership at Stanley Convergent Security Solutions (CSS) as the company recently announced that Marty Schnurr has been named president of the systems integration firm. Schnurr, a company veteran who has served in leadership positions at both Emhart and Hydraulic Tools, succeeds Tony Byerly, who had served as president of Stanley CSS since the company merged its U.S. and Canadian operations together in 2009.
In a statement, Brett Bontrager, senior vice president and group executive at Stanley Security Solutions, thanked Byerly for his service, but didn’t give an explanation for the change in leadership.
Bontrager’s full statement read:
“I would like to thank Tony Byerly, who has truly been a consummate industry professional. Tony has been instrumental in building CSS into what it is today, a North American leader in commercial security systems integration and monitoring. We are pleased to welcome Marty, who has been with the company for more than 16 years as a business development and integration leader at Emhart and a business president at Hydraulic Tools, to the CSS business. I’ve personally seen what Marty can do at two different business units within Stanley Black & Decker, and we’re excited that he can begin making contributions to the growth of CSS immediately.”
Earlier this year at ISC West, Stanley CSS introduced its new senior management team with executives joining the company as a result of its integration with Niscayah, which was acquired in a $1.2 billion deal in late 2011.
