Tim Eckersley named as SVP of Allegion International
New business unit to consolidate EMEA and Asia-Pacific regions
Allegion plc has announced the appointment of Tim Eckersley as senior vice-president of Allegion International, reporting to David Petratis, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Allegion.
The newly formed business unit, Allegion International, will be created on Jan. 1, 2021, and is a consolidation of the current EMEA and Asia-Pacific operating segments. Eckersley is currently senior vice president of Allegion’s Americas region.
“This business unit is designed to drive speed and efficiency, simplify our operating segments and optimize our non-U.S. operations,” said Petratis in a prepared statement. “Tim’s deep experience and leadership will help us accelerate momentum in electronics growth, software and seamless access, and further develop Allegion International flagship brands, like SimonsVoss, Interflex, CISA and Gainsborough.”
The company will continue to report under the existing structure for the remainder of 2020 and begin reporting under the new structure in 2021. Additional financial information will be provided when the company reports fourth-quarter earnings.
At a later date, Allegion will name Eckersley’s successor as leader of the Americas region. In the interim, Petratis will lead the region in addition to his current role.
Eckersley received a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Texas at Arlington.
