Raleigh, NC, United States, 2009/11/03 - Jeff Cathcart has been named director of compliance services at Sunstates Security, responsible for the company's strategic quality assurance programs.
One of Cathcart’s main goals is to lead Sunstates to ISO 9001-2008 certification within two years. The company currently is ISO 9001-2008 compliant.
“ISO 9000” certification – as maintained by the International Organization for Standardization – is globally recognized as an indicator of operational excellence. In becoming certified, a company demonstrates that it has formal and effective quality-related procedures in place for all business processes, and that it pursues continuous quality improvement within all operations.
“Most of Sunstates’ global clients are certified or working hard to get it, so standards that are critical for our partners and their business success are critical for us, as well,” said Glenn Burrell, president. “Jeff has significant experience and knowledge in continuous quality improvement. I am confident that he will help Sunstates achieve certification that will serve as yet another important differentiator for us in the marketplace.”
Cathcart has spent nearly his entire career managing, educating and training security personnel.
Previously, Cathcart served as chief of security for the Christian Broadcast Network, the campus of Regent University and the home of former Presidential candidate and The 700 Club host Pat Robertson.
Working at CBN when the 9/11 attacks occurred, Cathcart took a year-long leave of absence to become director for a U.S. Military Police Academy responsible for training Navy specialists in law enforcement before their deployment to the Middle East. There, he developed curriculum, oversaw instructors and trained 500-plus students in counter terrorism, defensive strategies and basic law enforcement procedures.
Cathcart rose to the rank of Master Training Specialist while serving in the U.S. Navy from 1982 to 1992, during which he received the Navy Commendation Medal and two Navy Achievement Medals. He holds a master’s degree in criminal justice.
