Remembering Tim Feury, Altec Systems

 - 
Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Like many in the security industry, I was saddened to learn about the death June 12 of Tim Feury, president of systems integration firm Altec Systems. Feury was 56 and died of complications of heart failure, according to an obituary in the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

I've interviewed Tim and his wife and business partner, Mary Feury, several times and enjoyed getting to know them at various events, especially PSA Security events. I have been in touch with Mary this week and plan to publish a more detailed remembrance of Tim once she and I have a chance to talk in the next few weeks.

In the meantime, here are a couple of links to stories I've written about Tim and Mary and Altec Systems. In this story from March, they were getting ready to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Altec systems (and their 10-year wedding anniversary as well.) And here's one from 2011 that talks about how Mary brought IT services to Altec Systems.

Tim Feury graduated from James Caldwell High School in New Jersey and moved to Atlanta in the early 1980s. In addition to his wife, Tim Feury is survived by sons, Andrew Feury of Atlanta, Matthew Feury of Atlanta, and Ryan Feury of Marietta; sisters, Patricia Borys of Marietta , MaryAnn Baker of Flanders, N.J. and Elizabeth Feury of Mount Olive Township, N.J.; brothers, John Feury of Verona, N.J. and Robert Feury of Lincoln Park, N.J.; and one grandchild.

MARIETTA, Ga.—Altec Systems President Tim Feury calls his business “still a work in progress,” even though it’s celebrating 20 years in business this year.

Making the shift to managed services

Why are some integrators dragging their feet, while others are reaping rewards of the managed services model?

The security industry can be just like any other when it comes to transitions, adaptations, market trends or the next big thing. Especially when the next big thing looks a lot smaller.

MARIETTA, Ga.—Altec Systems “dipped its toe in the water” of managed services about four years ago, and today it offers not only hosted access control and remote guarding, but a number of IT services, such as hosted desktop, phone, email and servers as well.
