GenNx360 Holding, GVI Security Solutions welcomes new board members

Lloyd Trotter, Ken Boyda, Rena Clark, David Schuldt, Steven Walin and Joseph Restivo named to board


While at Interlogix, Inc. and predecessor company SLC Technologies, Inc., Boyda defined and led the formation of today's GE Security business by engineering the merger and acquisition of more than 40 companies over a period of 15 years. This tremendous undertaking created what is now a multi-billion dollar wholly owned subsidiary of the General Electric Company (NYSE:GE).

In 2006, Boyda was inducted into the SSI (Security Solutions International) Security Industry Hall of Fame, a lifetime achievement award that recognizes individuals whose distinguished careers have helped shape the security industry.

Mr. Boyda received an A.B. degree in Government from Harvard College and an MBA from the Harvard Graduate School of Business.

Rena Clark is a Partner at GenNx360 Capital Partners and joined the firm in 2007. She brings over 20 years of general management and entrepreneurial experience to GenNx360 GVI Holding, Inc.

Prior to joining GenNx, Rena led a distressed middle market manufacturing company’s turnaround as CEO and President; the firm was eventually successfully divested to a strategic acquirer. In addition, she was responsible for creating a profitable standalone operating company carved out from a large international corporation in the specialty chemicals industry partnering with a private equity sponsor.

Clark has also served as vice president for the Kraft Sports Group (the New England Patriots) where she oversaw all corporate giving and strategic partnerships and initiatives with the organization’s top corporate sponsors. She has also served as the director and chief operating officer for Harvard Business School’s MBA Program with responsibility for admissions, financial aid and all student services. Earlier in her career, she gained management consulting experience while working at Bain & Co. and held positions in manufacturing operations at GE.

Clark volunteers with a number of non-profit organizations and was recently honored by the Johnson Publishing Co. for her excellences in the community. She was also recently recognized by the African American students and alumni of Harvard Business School with the alumni award for community service.

Clark earned a B.S. in mechanical engineering with honors from Lamar University and an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School.

David Schuldt has most recently served as a Member of the Board of Directors, and management advisor to Deister Electronics, GmbH, Barsinghausen, Germany, a leading world wide supplier of advanced RFID and security products. Over the past five years, he has also acted as an advisor to several Venture Capital firms as they pursued investments in the security and personal identification markets.

Previously, Mr. Schuldt was the Senior V.P. of SLC Technologies, Inc., a company focused on providing sophisticated electronic security solutions to a worldwide market through its eight operating companies. Mr. Schuldt joined SLC as a result of their purchase of Casi-Rusco, Inc. SLC was subsequently acquired by General Electric in 2002.

From 1990 to 1997, Mr. Schuldt was the President and CEO of Casi-Rusco, Inc., with headquarters in Boca Raton, FL, and 20 field sales and support offices around the world. Casi-Rusco was a leading developer and manufacturer of electronic access control, RF identification and security information systems. Mr. Schuldt, company management and Venture Capital investors purchased this company from Figgie International in 1994 and, after four years of continued rapid sales and profit growth, successfully sold it to SLC Technologies where he continued with the company in the senior corporate role described above.

Prior to his term at Casi-Rusco, Schuldt served as President and principal founder of DTI Security, Inc., a Silicon Valley based manufacturer of residential and commercial security, fire and access control equipment. In 1988 he sold the company to Cerberus A.G. of Mannendorf, Switzerland.
