Security Partners hires new operations manager

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Security Partners has hired Richard Bosley III, formerly of AlarmWATCH, to be its new operations manager, a position in which he will oversee the company's development in the wake of acquiring its second central station.

Bosley held multiple positions over an 18-year stint at his former company where he said, at one time or another, he worked “every position,” doing everything from service calls, IT and data entry to marketing and dealer support.

Bosley said his top priority at Security Partners remains on track: to get the Lancaster central station and the San Antonio facility, which it acquired in August, “fully, 100 percent hot redundant.” This involves switching both centrals to the Tadiran phone system and adding Bold’s Manitou servers to the San Antonio central. The two-fold process is scheduled to be completed sometime in January. 

Beyond the primary goal of redundancy, Bosley hopes to use his experience in a diverse range of positions to strengthen the critical relationships between Security Partners and its dealers, and between dealers and end users. “When [dealers] grow, we grow,” he said, adding that Security Partners plans to “refocus the central station to give some customer service training and backup support, and be able to offer services that Security Partners might not have thought about in the past.”

Another major area of emphasis, he said, will be helping dealers grow and market themselves, thereby forging stronger relationships with customers. “If you’re not reaching out to your customers we almost guarantee another alarm company is,” Bosley noted. “We really want to help dealers become more acquainted with end users instead of just installing alarms and collecting checks each month.”
