Nicholasville, KY – (July 10, 2014) – Sargent and Greenleaf, Inc. (S&G), a division of STANLEY Security, announces the retirement of W.F. (Bill) Dempsey, President and COO, in October 2014.
Dempsey joined S&G in April 2003 as Executive Vice President and was promoted to President and COO in early 2004 when S&G began seeking a new partner for business. Since partnering with STANLEY Security in January 2005, Dempsey has enabled revenues at S&G to more than double, and has become a valuable major player within the Stanley Black and Decker portfolio.
“Bill’s dedicated, honest and ethical approach to both customers and employees has driven our company to become the global competitor that it is today,” said Chris Casazza, President, STANLEY Mechanical Solutions at STANLEY Security. “We wish him all the best in his retirement.”
STANLEY Security and S&G are actively engaged in a search for Dempsey’s replacement.
