Marlon C. Wilson has been welcomed as public safety director at Huntington Place, Detroit. He has immediately taken on the senior leadership responsibilities of overall direction, coordination and evaluation of the department of public safety and security at the ASM Global-managed venue.

"Safety is one of the top concerns for meeting planners," said Karen Totaro, general manager for Huntington Place/ASM Global. "Having the depth of Marlon Wilson's experience along with his ability to articulate plans in a way that makes our clients feel safe and cared for will be instrumental to our future."

Wilson comes to the venue with 26 years of law enforcement and critical management experience. Most recently, Wilson served as deputy chief of the Detroit Police Department (DPD) and as executive officer in both the Major Crimes and Organized Crime divisions.

Public safety is increasingly becoming a top priority for convention centres and other venues. Wilson will be working to train Huntington Place staff on the latest safety and security protocols for venues in conjunction with the International Association of Venue Managers (IAVM) later this year. "I look forward to continuing my mission of the highest standard of safety and security for every team member, patron, and vendor who visits and interacts with Huntington Place," Wilson added. "I plan to use my longstanding law enforcement background to implement protocols and procedures that create the safest and most conducive environment possible for all."
