Thorburn Associates Welcomes Senior Associate Jackie Daniels


Lisa Thorburn, president of Thorburn Associates states “We are excited to have Jackie join our team!  She brings a wealth of experience and knowledge of security systems to TA. Her insights to the market requirements related to these systems are just one of her strengths.

Jackie comes to Thorburn Associates with more than 34 years of in-depth education, sales and management experience, helping companies choose the best solutions for securing and managing their physical assets.  Her experience gained in community college instruction led to her first position with ADP Dealer Services Division where she was instrumental in designing and implementing the curriculum and classes held for automotive dealership personnel as well as the ADP sales force.  In 1983, she became a partner in a company, Auto Trak, Inc.  In 1988, Jackie and three partners formed another company Key Trak, Inc., the first electronic key control software and hardware product in the world.  Primarily designed for the automotive market, Jackie took on the responsibility to show Multi-Family operators that they needed to secure apartment keys and protect themselves from lawsuits arising from misuse of keys.  The move into other markets such as the hotel, casino and government facilities soon followed.  The Key Trak name is now synonymous with all key control systems, much as Kleenex is with tissues.

Steve Thorburn, principal of Thorburn Associates adds:” Jackie will be instrumental in helping clients during the planning stages of a project, to make sure they are one step ahead of their competition in offering solutions that their competitors do not have knowledge of and has the ability to recommend solutions that are necessary in today’s fast paced society.”
