Leadership change at Stanley


In the second leadership change at Stanley CSS in 16 months, Marty Schnurr—who was named president of Stanley CSS North America in May 2012—has moved to a new non-security role at Stanley Black & Decker.

Brett Bontrager is acting head of Stanley CSS, along with running Stanley Security Solutions, according to John Nemerofsky, Stanley VP Global Vertical Market Solutions.

Asked about the leadership change, Nemerofsky told me that Bontrager is expected to stay in a dual role for “four to six months” until a new CSS president is named.

Asked details about a search for a new president Nemorofsky said “no search was taking place.”

An internal candidate will be announced within that time frame, he said.  

Schnurr’s reappointment was announced in an internal memo in at the beginning of the September.

Schnurr replaced Tony Byerly as president of CSS. Although he had worked with Stanley for 16 years, Schnurr had not worked in the physical security industry before being named president of Stanley CSS. He was president of Stanely Hydraulic Tools at the time of that appointment.
