ABLOY USA Critical Infrastructure Promotes Shayne Spears
Spears, the vertical market manager for ABLOY’s Oil & Gas unit, will now serve in a dual role as national accounts manager.
IRVING, Texas — One year after ABLOY USA Critical Infrastructure hired Shayne Spears as the new vertical market manager for Oil & Gas, he has been promoted and will now serve in a dual role as national accounts manager.
Based in Texas, Spears continues reporting to Managing Director Jerry Burhans.
With his new responsibilities, Spears will be working with Ray Marquis, ABLOY’s vertical market manager – Distribution & OEM, to develop national accounts. He will also continue promoting the brand to ABLOY’s channel partners, working specifically with larger integrators and distributors throughout the U.S.
“I’m looking forward to utilizing our distributor network and educating them about our CI capabilities,” says Spears. He joined ABLOY USA Critical Infrastructure in 2019 after accumulating 10 years of technical sales and business development experience and working for an oil and gas product manufacturing facility. “I think we can have a similar level of success that the Oil & Gas side of the business is experiencing.”
Spears referenced a key point when the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) last May recognized ABLOY’s high security PL340 padlock for meeting the regulations as a locking device for securing explosives magazines.
“To my knowledge we are the only security lock company that had ATF inspect and verify their cylinder design. That recognition has opened the doors for opportunities and we have several trials taking place with end-users at this time.”
ABLOY USA Critical Infrastructure provides critical asset security and remote access management solutions, minimizing security risks and increasing the efficiency of processes at critical infrastructure owned by governments and businesses globally.
