Abloy UK announced two new additions to its Critical Infrastructure (CI) division, broadening the skills and experience within its team and reinforcing its position in the industry.
David Rock and Rob Turner have been appointed as Market Development Managers for Critical Infrastructure at Abloy, with David specialising in Transport and Rob targeting the Communications sector.
Rock will focus on logistics, UK ports and airports, and brings 13 years of experience to the role, having worked in the industrial sector with products including door systems.
Well versed in liaising with end-users, contractors and architects, he is keen to develop relationships with key decision-makers and influencers in the Transport sector to discuss critical issues and how Abloy solutions can help.
Rock explained, “It’s vital that I understand individual needs within different departments of a business, so we can tailor bespoke solutions to help collectively address all of the challenges they face. We work in partnership with our clients and offer trust and peace of mind to exceed their expectations.
Turner has over 20 years of sales experience, most recently with a time and attendance hardware and software provider. This role gave him a consultative approach to software and a strong understanding of issues in this field, such as duplication of data and the need for integration.
He’s keen to build relationships and engage with people in the Communications sector.
Turner comments, “We’ve seen Telecoms companies catapulted 5-10 years ahead of where they were predicted thanks to the pandemic, but often we see that although they may have many disparate sites and assets across the UK, security isn’t front of mind.
“BEAT is a product that I’m especially excited about for my particular industry; it’s set to be a massive success. BEAT is a keyless solution that combines a digital key, a mobile app and a heavy-duty, Bluetooth padlock, offering flexible access rights and audit trails amongst a raft of other features.”
