IDN-Canada Announces New President, Celebrates 80th Anniversary

IDN-Canada announces the retirement of President Steve Dyson. Dyson had been leading IDN-Canada for over 30 years, serving first as general manager, then moving into the role of president in the mid 1990s. Dyson joined IDN-Canada after a number of years as a sales representative for Dominion Lock. We wish him all the best in the future.

Mark Johnston has succeeded Steve Dyson as president of IDN-Canada, effective January 1, 2014. Johnston brings with him almost 20 years of experience with IDN, including roles as director of business development and general manager. Brent Logue has succeeded  Johnston as the director of business development.

In addition, 2014 marks IDN-Canada’s 80th Anniversary. Over the years, IDN-Canada has grown from a single location in Toronto to a national distributor with eight locations throughout Canada. It is because of our loyal and valued customers, as well as our devoted employees, that IDN-Canada has achieved this milestone.

IDN-Canada is part of the International Distribution Network (IDN), which provides security products, access control solutions, and related services to security professionals through its six regional business hubs and associated distribution centers located in North America. With a wholesale distribution network of more than 50 locations, IDN offers customers the strength and buying power of a national organization along with local product availability and personal, customized service.
