I am interested into getting into the field of corporate security for
high tech research companies, or similar ones like that.  In what
little I have found, there are cutting edge companies that are in the
area of Los Alamos, NM.  I would be interested in that area.  When I
say corporate security, I don't mean the guy at the guard gate,
sitting at the desk, or walking around in a security guard uniform.  I
mean the well trained (which in law enforcement, security, and
investigations, I am) person that is basically a special agent for the
company.  I guess what I need to know is if there are a lot of
companies like that in that area, and how I could get the addresses
and names of the security directors so i can pursue that career.

Hello jpron,

As I'm sure you know, New Mexico is not the home to a great many large
corporate headquarters.  In fact, only one of the Fortune 1000
companies calls New Mexico its home.

However, as you noted, there are a number of high-tech companies in
the state, particularly in the Los Alamos area.  I can offer you a
list of such companies, along with general contact information.

A typical listing would look like this:


Avanza Technologies, Inc.
Category: Computer Software 
Location: Los Alamos 
Fax: (505) 663-5601 
Description: Software R&D firm specializing in identity-based
information management technology
Contact: Philippe Richard 

The listings do NOT specifically identify corporate security personnel
-- nor do they even indicate if the company has such a function.  But
they do offer a starting point of contact for you, if that would be of

Let me know if this would serve as a useful answer to your question,
and if so, I will post the listing of the high-tech companies in the

Good luck in your efforts.

I guess that would have to be a starting point for what I'm looking
for.  Let's go ahead and start there.  Thx

Hello again, jpron-ga.

Here's the list I mentioned earlier.  It's extracted from information
at the members database of the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce:

There are a few large, well-known companies included on the list, as
well as a fair number of lesser-known companies that, nevertheless,
seem to have substantial operations in and around Los Alamos.  Many of
the companies work as service suppliers to the Los Alamos National
Laboratory (LANL).

Below the list, I've included some additional information on
security-related resources.

I hope this is what you need, and wish you the best of luck in your
search.  If anything here is unclear, just post a Request for
Clarification and let me know how I can help you further.

There's no contact list of who the executives are (though you might
want to contact Foushee directly and inquire).  But the companies
themselves are listed, and may be worth contacting:

Security Distributing and Marketing Magazine lists several New Mexico
companies directly involved in supplying security systems (alarms,
etc).  I thought these might be of interest to you:

Integrated Controls USA Inc. $4.30M million revenue   38 employees
Albuquerque, N.M.    

SCI Inc. $2.30 M  13 employees
Albuquerque, N.M. 

Energy Control Inc. (ECI) $5.4M  38 employees
Albuquerque, N.M. 


Lastly, you may want to explore the ISMA site:

This is the home of the International Security Management Association,
which descirbes itself as "...a premier international security
association of senior security executives from major business
organizations located worldwide."

The site does not list who its members are.  But perhaps if you
contacted ISMA directly, they could steer to some appropriate contacts
in New Mexico.  Their contact information is given as:


ATTN: Susan W. Pohlmann
Consulting Business Manager
Post Office Box 623
Buffalo, IA 52728

Telephone: 1-800-368-1894
FAX: 1-800-568-1894

If calling from outside U.S.:
Telephone: 563-381-4008

FAX: 563-381-4283



Best of luck.  Let me know if anything here is unclear, or if you need
additional information.
