Robert Kilfoyle, Director of Public Safety and Emergency Management at Humber College, has been named Security Director of the Year 2019 by Canadian Security magazine. Kilfoyle was selected for the award by Canadian Security’s editorial advisory board based his nomination, which was submitted by colleagues.

Kilfoyle’s nomination stressed his commitment to mentorship, loyalty and team spirit in his department at Toronto-based Humber. Kilfoyle challenged his entire administrative team (including himself) to attain a level of certification through OMMI (Ontario Municipal Managers Institute) and OACUSA (Ontario Association of College and University Security Administrators). Kilfoyle made certification part of his team’s annual performance review, and provided the means and support for each team member to achieve this goal. Eight of the department staff achieved their certification, with a ninth currently working towards an ASIS Certified Protection Professional (CPP) designation.

In November 2018, Kilfoyle achieved the highest professional certification of CMM III through the OMMI, along with the specialty security endorsement of “Security Executive” from OACUSA. He is one of only three OACUSA members in the province to achieve this designation.

Kilfoyle has more than 30 years experience in the security industry. He has worked at Humber for the last six years and has also held senior security roles at York University in Toronto, and at the University of the Fraser Valley and Vancouver General Hospital in B.C.
