FJC Security Services announces new hires, promotion

Senior staff members to aid firm in national expansion efforts

Working out of FJC’s corporate office in Floral Park, New York and reporting to FJC Senior Vice President Mark Coffino is Mike Beckerich, 47, a security industry veteran. As vice president of Business Development, he will serve as the single point of contact for commercial real estate clients at existing FJC contract sites, as well as those looking to start service at new building locations. He will also oversee the firm’s Business Development Group, including FJC’s network of regional managers, telemarketers and proposal/bid specialists. In this role, he will lead the design and implementation of FJC’s new client relationship manager (CRM) program and of its new online, closed-loop quality assurance process. Prior to joining FJC, Beckerich spent many years as the managing director of an international security company’s New York area consulting and investigation practice, creating investigative solutions and addressing the informational needs of the firm’s Fortune 500 clientele. Subsequently, he served as the regional director of Sales for the US Northeast region of that same firm, leading the business development team to become the top performing sales team in the U.S. A graduate of Fordham University, Mr. Beckerich is a member of several trade organizations, including the American Society for Information Science (ASIS), Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement (IACLEA) and National Law Enforcement Associates (NLEA).

Adding to the pool of talent will be the newly promoted Michael Montemarano, 51, who will augment his role at FJC from senior director of its USO Division in New York, Long Island and Connecticut to Vice President of Operations. Reporting to Robert Hopes and working in the firm’s Long Island City, New York office, he will manage more than 90,000 hours of security coverage each week for clients, including government facilities, hospitals, educational institutions and private residential complexes. Montemarano will also directly supervise a large management staff and serve as a member of FJC’s Executive and Continuous Improvement Committees. Before joining FJC more than two years ago, he was the owner and operator of MCM Contracting, a general contracting firm he founded after retiring from a 20-year career with the New York City Police Department. Montemarano has a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice from St. John’s University.

Coffino concludes, "These key appointments and prominent promotion are timely given FJC’s plethora of high-profile contracts in the private and public sector and expanding leadership in the security services arena."
