Dempsey joined S&G as Executive Vice President and was promoted to President and COO in early 2004 Sargent and Greenleaf, Inc. (S&G), a division of STANLEY Security, announces the retirement of W.F. (Bill) Dempsey, President and COO, in October 2014. Dempsey joined S&G in April 2003 as Executive Vice President and was promoted to President and COO in early 2004 when S&G began seeking a new partner for business.
