Who Are We?


Diane Riddle has been with A. L. Odom Locksmiths for over 10 years. She understands locksmithing and the ever-changing needs to be secure and safe in your home or business.

Diane started as the bookkeeper but you may know her for her other many hats: sometimes a safe tech, other times an operations manager, or maybe even a chef. “I was known to cook a meal or two in the shop.” But these days, Diane is back to bookkeeping for both companies. You can usually find her ear deep in paperwork.

She, along with her husband Gene, purchased the fire safety portion of the company back in 2013 (Riddle Fire Safety Group) and have seen it grow ever since. When Allen decided to retire early in 2014, it was only fitting to own the locksmithing part as well. And let's not forget about Marianne. She stuck around to oversee the shop and training. Boy! is she a book of knowledge.

Gene oversees the daily operations of A. L. Odom Locksmiths and Riddle Fire Safety Group. Chances are when you call the shop he will be your first point of contact as he loves to speak directly with every customer. His motto has always been to get to know your customer and make them feel at ease. And if you come by the shop, he will always greet you with a hot cup of coffee.
