Meet the Team

Passing on decades of knowledge to empower a new generation of door and hardware professionals.

MEET TOM SEIDEL, AHC, CSI
ASSA ABLOY Academy trainersTom is ASSA ABLOY Academy’s Manager of Training and Education for Door Security Solutions.His depth of experience in the door and hardware industry started over 28 years ago. We’re happy to say he’s been with us at ASSA ABLOY more than 17 of those years. During that time, he has explored multiple roles within the organization including Distribution Representative, Architectural Consultant, Specification Writer, and Training Specialist.

Armed with that breadth of background, Tom is more than well versed in product nomenclature and applications, as well as access control technologies. In his role, he enjoys interacting with the current and next generation of industry experts. To that end, Tom was instrumental in the development of several instructor-led courses, but he is most proud of his work with Foundation Training, a six-week industry immersion program for new door openings professionals.

He loves that there is always more to learn. That keeps things fresh and keeps him engaged. As he says, “This industry changes and evolves very quickly, and you must keep up to maintain the passion. I may be a little biased, but I feel that we offer some of the best industry training available.”Now that’s commitment.
