Security 101, a national provider of full-service commercial security solutions, announced the addition of industry veteran Tim Whall as a strategic board advisor.

Whall brings decades of experience to Security 101 and his distinct style of teaching leaders has delivered transformative results across the industry. He determines the behaviors required to achieve operational excellence and improve the customer experience, as well as how to define and measure success.

Tim has had the opportunity to apply his strengths to nearly every operational position from family-owned company technician to publicly traded ADT CEO. He has since enjoyed lending his characteristic candor in consultative roles, and very much looks forward to this opportunity.

“Our industry and company are in the midst of a period of unprecedented change and opportunity,” said Steve Crespo, CEO of Security 101. “The strategic and operational experience and passion that Tim brings to our organization will be invaluable in accelerating our vision of building a high-quality organization that puts customers first and serves as home for our industry’s leading talent.”

Founded in 2007, Security 101 is a franchisor and self-perform provider of integrated security solutions to a diversified set of commercial customers across multiple end markets, including healthcare, education, financial, and government, among others. The company delivers a full-service offering of security services and products including the design, installation, and maintenance of access control, video surveillance, intrusion detection, visitor management, and managed service solutions.

“Steve and the Security 101 team have built a nationally recognized security company with an envious local touch that customers of all size appreciate,” Whall said. “It’s obvious to me that Security 101’s fanatical customer service and values-based culture run deep across the organization. They have a tremendous growth opportunity and I’m excited to partner with Steve and the team to make it happen.”
