Security Industry Pro Holley Hunt Joins Alcatraz as Director of Business Development

Holley Hunt has joined Alcatraz as director of Business Development. Hunt leads Alcatraz in discovering and pursuing new business opportunities and partnerships as the technology security startup carves out a new industry – autonomous access control.

“As a leader in the security space, Holley is an excellent addition to the Alcatraz team in this critical time of our go-to-market strategy and execution. She has impressive security industry business development experience with world-renowned security leaders. What’s also impressive is that, throughout her career, Holley has taken the extra step of serving as a mentor to her peers in the industry and also in encouraging young women to get into STEM fields to help create future leaders,” said Tina D’Agostin, chief revenue officer at Alcatraz.

Prior to joining Alcatraz, Hunt served as director of business development and global strategic account executive for Johnson Controls. She also was business development manager for Qognify, director of strategic partnerships for The Kepler Group, and regional sales manager for Bosch Security Systems. She has served in a variety of volunteer roles, including: mentor-protege chair for the ASIS San Diego Chapter, board member of the San Diego Security and the Orange County Alarm associations; and president of the Inland Empire Alarm Association. 

Hunt created an active global networking group called Cool Peers Rock for practitioners to connect and benchmark best practices. She also developed School of ROCC, a program for high school STEM students that helps create future leaders in Risk, Operations, Cyber and Controls.

“With Alcatraz, I’m starting a new chapter and it’s all about the rock. And by rock, I mean several things – a foundation to set my future and an opportunity to focus on the Alcatraz Rock autonomous access control platform,” said Hunt. “The Alcatraz Rock is just what’s needed for security in general, access control in particular, and during this time when we need to create a touchless experience for our business environments. With the Alcatraz Rock, your face is your badge and that delivers an impressive level of security.”
