OTTAWA, Ontario, Canada. – Feenics, a provider of cloud-based access control and security management platform solutions, has appointed Denis HÃ©bert as president and equity partner. HÃ©bert previously served as president and CEO of HID Global from 2002-2015, as well as executive vice president for its parent company, ASSA ABLOY.
In a prepared statement, HÃ©bert said his focus will be to further enable the successes Feenics has achieved in bringing cloud-hosted solutions to market in the systems integration and value-added reseller communities.
“I am excited to be part of this journey with Feenics, as the access control paradigm shifts to cloud computing, providing a wealth of new service offerings to systems integrators and their customers. In every industry there are evolutions, and the cloud alternative to access control is a significant transformation in physical access management,” he said.
HÃ©bert currently holds the position of chairman of the board of the Security Industry Association (SIA). He formerly spent 17 years with Honeywell, having held executive positions in Canada, France and the United States.
