Rutherford Controls’ Owner/HR Director to Retire
Rutherford Controls Int’l Corp. (RCI), a global, privately held organization established in 1923, providing the security, locksmith, architectural hardware and OEM markets with electrified locking solutions, announces the retirement of one of its owners, Tracey Rutherford, director of human resources, effective Aug. 31.
RCI has evolved from a small regional family business to an international designer and manufacturer during Rutherford’s 30-year career.
In 1990, Rutherford relocated to the United States in her role as director of operations and was actively involved in opening the Virginia Beach facility, where she continued to work and reside for 15 years.

Rutherford looks forward to pursuing her passions; spending her time volunteering with local charities, playing more golf and traveling around the world.
