The new team members have wide-ranging experience in Fortune 500 companies, healthcare and law enforcement to help commercial organizations focus on business continuity, resiliency and adoption of best practices in disruptive and uncertain times. 

“Today’s unprecedented eternal pressures expose businesses to new risks that require thoughtful planning and expert counsel in public safety, communications, risk, resilience and security,” Ed Bacco, vice president of ADT Commercial’s eSRG said in the announcement. “These accomplished professionals represent the unparalleled commitment and resources of ADT Commercial’s eSRG and are true innovators who have served in roles similar to many of our customers.

In his new role, Fowler will provide insights for commercial customers in evaluating strategies and solutions to boost incident response efficiency, optimize environmental design and develop crisis management plans. 
  • Patricia Coureas, eSRG principal consultant, brings 30 years of experience with the FBI as well as a proven track record of success in building and managing global security for a Fortune 500 organization.
