LANCASTER, Pa.—Security Partners, a wholesale monitoring company with four centers through the United States, today announced that Randy Hall will take over as the company’s president.

“This is a huge opportunity for us. Randy is an industry veteran,” Patrick Egan, Security Partners CEO, told Security Systems News. “[Hall] has been in the field and dealing with a significant dealer base in his past responsibilities and we’re just excited to have him on board.”

Most recently, Hall served as the director of corporate development at Alarmax Distributors. He joined the industry in 1986 and has worked with C&K Systems, The Systems Depot and Contractors Wire & Cable.

"I'm really excited," Hall told SSN. "I think the core elements of the business are there. It's time to get the team focused ... [and] put the customer first."

Hall comes with a perspective different from the company’s previous president Mike Bodnar, Egan noted, as Hall has experience in distribution as well as wholesale monitoring. “We think he’s going to bring a [really] strong sales perspective to Security Partners,” Egan said.

“Security Partners has experienced really nice growth in the past couple of years under Mike's watch; we are now poised to take it to the next level,” Egan added.

Egan was pleased with the timing: Hall’s first official day is today and previous president Bodnar continued to serve the company through Friday, June 9. “The timing is perfect to have Randy start at the ESX show. With hundreds of dealers that will be there, it’s a great way to introduce him as the new president,” Egan said.

The search for a new president began about six weeks ago, said Egan. “We were very systematic in our approach and we’ve interviewed a number of people in the last couple of months.”

Security Partners has 135 employees, more than 600 dealers and it monitors for more than 250,000 customers. The company has monitoring centers in Lancaster, Pa., Anaheim, Calif., Las Vegas and San Antonio.
