SDI

Chicago integrator expands again

 - 
Tuesday, December 31, 2013

Chicago-based integrator SDI is going to Atlanta—with the hire of security veteran Bob Carter, who will serve as director of sales for the Southeast region of the country.

He’ll be working closely with X7 staff, a Washington, D.C.-based integration firm that was acquired by SDI in August. 

Carter comes to Iron Sky, where he has general manager and helped “build city surveillance, LPR and data integration solutions for public safety and police departments.” Before that he was with Sentry Technology and also served as a Deputy United States Marshal.

SDI redesigned its sales organization and opened a Texas office in October.

“We’ve had our eye on Atlanta,” Dawn Pfeiffer, SDI CMO told me. IN addition to the critical infrastructure and government opportunities, there are a lot of commercial opportunities in Atlanta, she said.

SDI has had a very active year. In June it acquired i-sys  and one month later it acquired X7.

SDI specializes in complex technology systems and network infrastructure for critical infrastructure. SDI customers include airports, utilities, schools, 911 centers and public transit and toll authorities. Since June of 2012, it has been owned by LLR partners, a $2 billion investment firm.

The company will continue to be acquisitive, Pfeiffer said. “We’re looking to add a third acquisition within the next six months.”
