Napco Sr. VP of Sales Dave Sheffey Retiring After 31+ Years With the Company
Sheffey started his tenure spanning more than three decades with Napco as western VP before being elevated to senior VP of sales.
After more than years with Napco Security Technologies, first as western VP and later as senior VP of sales for all Napco regional sales managers across North America, Dave Sheffey is retiring, having handed over the reins and team to VP Michael Venoit earlier this year.
Sheffey “has long been a key part of Napco Security sales management, an accomplished leader, industry icon and driver of Napco security sales and distribution channels,” according to the company announcement.
“Anyone who knows Dave, as most in the industry do, recognize the amiable, modest, super-intelligent guy who is comfortable speaking to virtually everyone, and always knows how to get things done and with whom,” the company announcement says.
“Never one to shrink away from a challenge, Dave is extremely knowledgeable and well-versed in all aspects of technology, applications, and product (as well as science, astronomy, and fine art, too),” according to the announcement. “Dave’s extensive security experience and industry knowledge have served him, his accounts, and NAPCO well.”
Why Dave Sheffey Thrived at Napco
Two of Sheffey’s idiomatic phrases sum up much of what may be his work philosophy: “I have a curiosity” and “Don’t poke a sleeping bear.” For those who know Sheffey, he seemingly always knows which to apply and when.
After decades of traveling across the U.S. and Canada representing Napco, attending countless trade shows and events, and visiting and supporting security professionals and distributors, Sheffey is literally going to motor off into the sunset of the Great Lakes on his boat with his wife Beth.
“On behalf of all of us at NAPCO, it’s been our pleasure to work with you,” says Stephen Spinelli, senior VP of sales for NAPCO Security Technologies.
