BEI Construction is a security integration leader in the Bay Area, and BEI Security General Manager Luis Valle is a key part of the BEI Security Team. Based out of our Alameda, California location, Valle brings his security installation and integration knowhow to BEI customers. He’s an expert when it comes to access control and video systems, intrusion detection, biometric technologies, and more. Valle’s passion for security drives him to be a successful leader in the security arena.
Valle’s professional history includes working with leading companies, such as Northland, Convergint, NetVersant, Cisco Systems, HP, and IBM. He developed his skill set by delivering customer initiatives in the following roles: program manager, senior IT PM, senior network engineer, and IT business consultant. However, he was drawn to security.
Valle explains: “I was working at Cisco developing and implementing global IT/engineering websites when 9/11 happened. I wanted to do something, and I realized that security, especially building security, was my calling.”
“I like to develop integrations that help companies help themselves in ways that fit with the people and culture of the company,” he says. “The goal is to protect people and assets without being obtrusive or adding inefficiencies to people’s work day.”
The evolution of BEI Security Integration Services
BEI entered the security arena as a local service provider. Our installation team worked with security companies on projects that usually involved installing cable. Over time, we added the security experts and partners that today make BEI a full-service Global Security Integrator. Our clients include many of the tech leaders based in the Bay Area, and we are working/partnering with these companies in the Asia Pacific region and the United Kingdom.
“Our security team provides installation and integration services, and we can help clients find the technology that’s right for their needs,” says BEI Principal Gary Chelini. “Because we offer security integration, audio/visual, and telecom/data services, we can integrate a broad array of systems. Few other companies match the number of services we can bring together on a single project.”
The BEI team can also service and maintain the systems we install. Clients can use our 800 number or web portal to reach us when they have questions. We even host quarterly meetings with our clients’ security managers to keep them informed of the latest threats.
“I joined BEI because of its focus on client success,” says Valle. “Relationships with clients are important to the whole team. Threats are always evolving, and we work with clients to help them stay vigilant and secure.”
