GenNx360 Holding Inc., and GVI Security Solutions, the Carrollton, Texas-based provider of video security surveillance solutions, yesterday welcomed Lloyd Trotter, Ken Boyda, Rena Clark and David Schuldt to the board of directors of GenNx360 GVI Holding Inc. They join Steven Walin, CEO, and Joseph Restivo COO/CFO, on the board.
“We are very pleased to welcome Lloyd, Ken, Rena, and David to the board,” Walin said. “The wealth of experience they bring to the table in building and running highly successful businesses through acquisitions and organic growth will provide invaluable guidance as we move forward to aggressively expand our presence in the security industry.”
Trotter became managing partner of GenNx360 Capital Partners after a nearly 40-year career with General Electric that was capped with his being appointed a vice chairman of the company in August 2006. He was a founding member of GE's African-American Forum and is actively involved in professional and community organizations. He has served on the boards of the National Association of Manufacturers, the National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering, the National Electrical Manufacturers Association, and the GE Foundation.
Boyda most recently held the position of president and CEO of GE Security, a $2 billion global business focused on communication and information technologies for security, safety and lifestyle enhancements.
Clark is a partner at GenNx360 Capital Partners, having joined the firm in 2007. She brings more than 20 years of general management and entrepreneurial experience. She has served as the director and chief operating officer for Harvard Business School’s MBA program, with responsibility for admissions, financial aid and all student services. She also volunteers with a number of non-profit organizations and was recently honored by Johnson Publishing Company for excellence in the community.
Schuldt most recently served on the board of directors and as a management advisor to Deister Electronics GmbH, Barsinghausen, Germany. He has been a member of numerous professional associations, including the Electronics Association of California, the American Electronics Association and the Security Industry Association
“Video security surveillance is increasingly becoming the nexus of modern security systems, providing a core structure around which a host of security technologies, including access control and other complementary technologies, can be grouped to create a fully integrated security solution,” Walin said. “As we move forward to build a fully integrated security business, our new board members’ knowledge and experience will help us focus on the most promising acquisitions and growth opportunities,” he added.
