I am pleased to make the following organizational announcements:
David Malefsky has been promoted to Executive Vice President. David has been with Cambridge from almost the very beginning. He developed and initially managed our National Command Center. He was instrumental in developing both our retail and special operations divisions in the northeast and throughout the United States. While continuing to manage and build this business, David also oversees many of the residential accounts in NYC.
Marco Lopez has been promoted to Sr. Vice President in charge of business expansion. Several years ago, Marco established the South Florida operations of Cambridge and has been instrumental in growing it into a successful division for the company. Under Marco’s leadership we are now establishing a foothold in the Orlando market. Most recently, Marco is in charge of our expansion into the southwestern United States where he has been busy establishing Las Vegas, Nevada as our headquarters for that region. Marco is relinquishing his operational duties to focus on the business expansion of Cambridge.
Jim D’Arcy, who is presently a Vice President of the company, will be relocating to Florida to manage operations there. As some of you already know, Jim has been splitting his time between New Jersey and Florida helping to sell and get a major account with a large, national grocery chain up and running. Jim will continue to travel between the two states for the immediate future, but will relocate to Florida after the school year. Jim’s extensive background in both law enforcement and as the former vice president of all operations for the Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company makes him an ideal candidate for this position and responsibility.
Ralph Martell who is currently a Sr. Vice President and Director of our New York operations will now add to his responsibilities the directorship of our New Jersey operations. In this dual role, Ralph will be in charge of all regular security operations for Cambridge and will oversee all of the account managers and inspectors, as well as all of the security officers who work under them. Ralph will continue to manage our in-house training program for all field supervisors and inspectors.
Please join me in congratulating our leadership in their new roles as we continue to grow our organization.
