BOCA RATON, Fla.--Devcon International announced in January the appointment of Ron Lakey as chief operating officer and president of Devcon Security Services, the company's security division. According to a release, this will allow chief executive officer Stephen Ruzika to focus on the strategic direction of the company, capital markets and investor relations.
Previously, Lakey was president of Devcon's Construction and Materials divisions. A deal this summer to sell the Construction division to Symonette Group for $12 million fell through in late August.
Lakey served as chief financial officer at Crime Control, then, after it was purchased by ADT, he headed up ADT's IT department and eventually had overall responsibility for the company's Canadian and European operations.
