Raefield to lead Mace
HORSHAM, Pa.--Roughly six weeks after parting ways with former CEO Lou Paolino, the Mace Security International board has appointed security industry veteran Dennis Raefield as CEO and president.
Raefield, whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been a Mace board member since October 2007, will resign his post as president of Reach Systems (formerly Edge Integration) to assume his role at Mace, and becoming a Reach board member. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been president of Ademco and Honeywell Access, and president of Pinkerton Systems Integration, and came out of retirement in late 2007 to lead Reach, a maker of IP access control systems.
Raefield said his immediate goals for Mace when he begins work Aug. 18 are to raise top line revenue and to increase MaceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s brand recognition within the electronic security space.
Current interim CEO Gerald LaFlamme will step down from his post and resume his position on the Mace board.
