FALLS CHURCH, Va. — Kastle Systems Int’l (KSI), a leading provider of managed security solutions and services, has appointed Haniel Lynn as CEO, effective immediately.
Lynn will assume the new role of CEO across KSI’s family of five security companies including Kastle Systems, Mutual Security, Stat Land Security, Urban Alarm and CheckVideo. Former CEO Piyush Sodha will continue to be actively involved in the business, serving as co-chairman and co-owner, alongside Chairman and Majority Owner Mark Ein.
Lynn has more than 25 years of global operating and executive management experience growing and scaling enterprises from startup to $1 billion, leveraging his distinctive strengths in strategy, innovation, leadership and operations, according to an announcement. He most recently served as group president of CEB, now Gartner’s Best Practices & Decision Support business, and member of the company’s executive leadership team. Formerly, he held roles at GE Information Services, McKinsey & Co., and LYTE, a technology startup.
“I am very pleased to be joining Kastle as CEO and look forward to driving the development and execution of our growth strategy moving forward. Security has never been more important than it is today, and it is a privilege to lead Kastle during this important time in its history,” states Lynn.
KSI staffs more than 500 employees in 11 locations. The company also operates four geo-dispersed central monitoring centers. Kastle maintains TMA Five Diamond certification and UL Listings, and annually handles millions of signals.
Ein states that Lynn’s extensive experience, combined with his strong core values, makes him the perfect choice to lead Kastle as the company embarks on the next phase of its journey.
“I can think of no one better than Haniel to lead Kastle in our next stage of growth and advancement. We’ve selected a very strong leader at a time when Kastle is in a very strong position,” Ein says. “Today’s pace of change is exponential and Kastle’s role in the transformation of the security industry has never been more important. Haniel is unique in his ability to translate vision and strategy into world-class execution, bringing together teams and partners to drive results while inspiring a culture of teamwork.”
