Tom Barnes Now in Charge of Entire Canadian Market
Due to Boon Edam’s fast-paced growth and vision for the future, the company must continuously align resources to meet customer needs in today’s dynamic market. To this end, Boon Edam has changed its sales structure in 2017 to allow sales teams to focus on either Security or Architectural product lines.
Tom Barnes has been appointed the new Business Development Manager for the entire Canadian market. Tom and his family make their home right outside of Toronto in Oakville Ontario, and he has been active in Eastern Canada since joining Boon Edam in July of 2016. Barnes has 25+ years in the security industry, working in various positions at companies such as Intercon Security Ltd., Tyco Advanced Integration and G4S Canada.
Barnes is responsible for all regional and national security sales and customer relations within Canada. For Architectural Products--Manual and Automatic Revolving Doors—Glen Tracy, National Sales Manager for Architectural Products will be in charge.
Barnes, commenting on his promotion to take charge of the entire Canadian market for Security Turnstiles, Gates, Revolving Doors and Security Portals, “Canada is a large, untapped market. We have seen a tremendous uptick in opportunities specific to this market. Key growth areas include the government and financial sectors. We have honed our product offerings for the Canadian market to those products that deal with specific countermeasures that fit within the Canadian culture. These include Tourlock security revolving doors, Circlelock mantrap portals and the amazing Speedlane Lifeline Swing optical turnstile with its beautiful design.” Out of the gate, Barnes plans to concentrate on the Greater Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and Alberta markets.
