Jeff Spivey, CPP, PSP, has advanced to the presidency of ASIS International effective Jan. 1, 2006. Spivey brings nearly 30 years of experience in law enforcement and the private security industry to the position, having spent the last 23 years working in and consulting to corporations on security management. Currently, Spivey is director of Security Risk Management Inc., Charlotte, N.C., a security consulting firm he founded in 1989.

Spivey said he would use 2006 to rededicate the society to its vision of “advancing security worldwide” by helping government and the security profession to develop effective strategies to address terrorism and other security issues, streamlining existing ASIS governance, and volunteer leadership structures and processes to better manage the key challenges and opportunities that arise within the security profession, developing guidelines and standards for the security profession and promoting certification as a professional competency standard.

As convergence has created a new paradigm for protecting corporate assets, Spivey will also lead an ASIS effort to ensure the successful integration of these two fields in the evolving body of knowledge in security.

Spivey is a graduate of the University of North Carolina with a B.S. in Criminal Justice Management. He has authored several articles in security trade journals and has been a featured speaker at various security, risk management, criminal investigation and counter-terrorism conferences throughout the country.
