During his career, Williams has been a key player in taking new technologies like industrial computers, industrial-grade human machine interface (HMI), fieldbus devices and industrial wireless from early to mainstream adoption in the automation industries.

In a move to strengthen its position in the security market, signal transmission provider Belden purchased Byres Security in September.

Most recently Williams was chief executive of ELPRO Technologies Pty Ltd., an industrial wireless products developer and president and chief executive of Action Instruments, a global supplier of single conditioners, measurement and data acquisition solutions for industrial and process businesses.

“Industrial cyber security is the next major impactful technology to hit the automation and process control industries,” Williams said.

“We are very excited to have Frank join our team,” said Joann Byres, vice president and general manager of Byres Security. “He adds a wealth of automation industry business and management experience into our group, and he will be invaluable as we ramp up development and sales channels as part of Belden.”
