Pamela Petrow

Vector Security Holdings Inc., Philadelphia, announced two promotions designed to ensure long-term leadership. Pamela Petrow, formerly Vector’s executive vice president, was promoted to chief operating officer, while Michael Grady left his position as senior vice president and stepped into the role vacated by Petrow.

Petrow and Grady have been with Vector many years, rising through the ranks over time. Petrow began her career with Vector 26 years ago as a sales trainee, while Grady began his career at Vector Security in 1983 as a commercial sales representative. John Murphy, Vector’s president and CEO believes these changes in management are setting a strong course for Vector’s long-term future.

“Both Pam and Michael have worked alongside me for many years and bring a long career experience within the electronic security industry and within Vector Security to their new responsibilities,” Murphy said. “The combination of their core competencies and commitment creates a unique balance for Vector, effectively merging our strong operational reputation with new approaches to our sales and marketing initiatives.”

Petrow and Grady report to Murphy and join him on Vector’s executive committee, which oversees all aspects of Vector’s operations.

Vector, ranked seventh on the SDM 100, is a supplier of electronic security, fire alarm, video surveillance and access control systems, and is the largest privately held company in the industry.
