Jeff Cahill is a 35-year industry veteran with extensive backgrounds in both the mechanical locking and electronic access industries. He began his career by establishing a start-up distribution business selling commercial locking systems and built it into the number one sales/distribution office for Best Access Systems (later Stanley). Jeff followed this success by becoming one of the founders/partners for XceedID Corporation, an RFID card and reader company in the access control industry specializing in contactless smart card technology. XceedID was eventually sold to Ingersoll-Rand Corporation. More recently, Jeff has accelerated his entrepreneurial experience by purchasing majority ownership of Marlow White Corporation and holds minority and board positions in StreetWise CADLink and DATA, Inc. (Software Developers).
Ownership and board positions in several companies and past management positions with Best Access and Ingersoll-Rand uniquely qualify Jeff to build a team of experts in the RFID electronic security, locking hardware, and software industries.
