Centrallo, the creator of Groupdolists, a leading next-generation crisis management platform, is pleased to announce the formation of the Groupdolists Security Advisory Council. Groupdolists is a game changer for security operations and emergency management teams, who must protect employees and assets during unexpected disruptions. Groupdolists’ Security Advisory Council members have an unprecedented combination of former crisis leadership roles, including the FBI, US Secret Service, Fortune 1000 Chief Security Officers, and United States Federal Government emergency management.
“We have assembled an all-star Security Advisory Council who believe in our mission and support our vision of helping organizations and agencies become less vulnerable to unexpected incidents such as cyber or ransomware attacks, active shooter incidents, power outages, severe weather, or the countless number of other situations that threaten the safety and security of employees, assets, brands, supply chains, and reputations,” said Michael J. Sher, founder and CEO. “This group has managed through and coordinated response teams for almost every kind of incident, attack, or disaster. To have them by our side, providing product roadmap advice, making high-level introductions, and more is a testament to the resonant value Groupdolists has for crisis management’s best and brightest. This Council will help us realize our long-term vision of making a difference.”
The Groupdolists Security Advisory Council includes:
Ty Richmond, President of Integrated Solutions and Technology at Allied Universal
Kevin Donovan, former Chief Security Officer at Johnson & Johnson
Stevan Bernard, former Chief Security Officer at Sony Pictures
Peter Dowling, former Chief Security Officer at AXA Insurance
Michael Lowder, former Director of Emergency Management at US Department of Transportation
Mark Lex, former Director of Security at Abbott Labs, Grainger and Kraft Foods
Lynn Mattice, President, National Security Alliance
Brian Mcllavrey – former CEO at PPM
“I am honored to be a member of and lead the Groupdolists Security Advisory Council, joining such an esteemed group of leaders from the public and private sectors,” said Ty Richmond, Advisory Council Chair. “The experience and background that has been assembled is a testament to the value of Groupdolists’ technology, and its mission to mitigate crises, emergency events, and critical incidents in general through coordination, accountability, and transparent, timely, and precise information for decision makers.”
“Groupdolists is already making a difference for those managing corporate and government front lines, with the expectation that we will help protect and (in some cases) save lives. We are driven to help dramatically improve operational efficiencies for emergency managers, security directors, and others who coordinate crisis response teams and recover from unexpected threats and incidents,” said Sher.
New York City-based Centrallo, the creator of Groupdolists, has assembled all-star leadership and advisory teams, many of whom helped build and grow the pioneering emergency notification service Send Word Now (SWN Communications Inc.). Send Word Now began right after 9/11 and was acquired in May of 2017 by OnSolve, formerly ECN (Emergency Communications Network). The DNA of Groupdolists dates back 17 years, developing communication solutions specifically for the emergency and incident management markets. Groupdolists takes the next step beyond emergency notification.
