Gallagher has appointed Jeff Fields as Director and Paul Haake as Senior Systems Engineer of its newly formed Federal Government Program.
“There are so many changes from the cyber world coming by way of force,” says Fields, who made his debut as Federal Director at ISC West in Las Vegas in March. “Right now, we’re being challenged at every corner from multiple countries continuing to push the envelope from a data and cybersecurity perspective. Compliance, and being able to meet specific certifications within the federal government, is going to cascade into other markets,” he predicts, a feat Gallagher has already achieved above and beyond federal mandate. “Everyone is now taking a pathway to adopt the same protocols that the federal government is setting as standard.”
“I was at the FICAM Lab in D.C. when I first learned about Gallagher’s PIV solution, and I was blown away by what it could do,” says Haake. “After learning more, I was completely sold on the incredible potential and magnitude of innovation that Gallagher is capable of delivering. From an industry perspective, we’ve got the tools, resources, and products that can drive the industry to new heights.”
“Our value proposition in creating this program is that we don’t see Gallagher as just an access control company. That just happens to be a product and service we provide, but we’re innovative, and we’re an entire ecosystem that takes disparate products operating in their own shell and brings them into our single solution capable of achieving the results government bodies are looking for. And that’s the mindset I’m bringing to our Federal team.”
