Salient Systems, a provider of open architecture video management software solutions, has named Keith Aubele as the company’s first ever chief security officer. Aubele brings decades of experience at leading retail organizations to the CSO role.
A former director of loss prevention for Walmart Stores Inc, and senior vice president of loss prevention for The Home Depot, Aubele will guide Salient’s approach to customer needs in the rapidly changing security landscape, as well as provide overall leadership and direction on corporate risk assessment, strategic planning, and global initiatives on behalf of Salient. Aubele serves on the Asset Protection Council with ASIS International and holds a Certified Protection Professional (CPP) with ASIS, and a Loss Prevention Professional certification (LPP) from Missouri Southern University. He has also worked with top Fortune 500 clients while leading his consulting firm, Nav1gate.
“Keith’s depth of expertise and industry reputation in corporate security management and loss prevention leadership will continue to guide Salient in our ongoing efforts to expand the value of our platform to customers and how we best deliver that value,” said Dave Hood, chief executive officer, Salient Systems. “His C-suite experience at two of the world’s largest companies will bring additional strength and perspective to our executive team.”
The CSO role is the first of its kind for Salient and follows a host of key executive leadership announcements to support the company’s ongoing growth as an enterprise software provider. These newly created positions will further support the company’s initiatives in deepening the functionality and open platform approach of CompleteView, Salient’s Open Cloud Video Data Platform, and future roadmap development for current and future customers.
“I am excited to contribute to the already significant knowledge base at Salient as well as be a voice of security leadership and deployment best practices to the industry on behalf of Salient,” Aubele said. “We are committed to providing our customers the tools they need to successfully mitigate loss and risk so they can make impacts in other areas of their business.”
