FutureNet unit hires sales exec

FutureNet Security Solutions, the Franklin-based manufacturer formerly known as Smith & Wesson Security Solutions and Universal Safety Response, has hired Terry Young as regional sales director for the Midwest. Young, who is based in Dallas, has spent more than 16 years in the security sector, including six years as a physical security director in the U.S. Marine Corps. He has marketed security products to military, petrochemical, federal government and other commercial buyers.

“Terry’s security systems expertise, understanding of the industry’s governing regulations, and proven client-focused approach make him a tremendous addition to FNSS and an invaluable resource to our clients,” said FutureNet Security President Wes Foss.

The local security barrier business was acquired this summer by Michigan-based FutureNet, which runs a number of other businesses that specialize in government contracting.
