“A true visionary not only creates products that meet customer needs, but also changes an industry. He reshaped three markets in the process of founding four companies.”

“Over the years, the association often sought out his advice, as he was one of the visionaries in our industry. His insight into people and companies was always amazing.”

“His endowment to the business is characterized by his unending willingness to openly and unselfishly engage with his peers for the betterment of all security companies.”

“A tireless supporter of CSAA, she chaired our education committee during the formation of our most successful online education program, and was the catalyst during the formation of our Fall Central Station Operations Conference.”

“He has provided strong leadership to our industry, serves on the Board of CSAA, and actively supports SIAC in word, deed and financial contributions.”

The reverential comments to the left were among the many ringing endorsements voters lavished upon the five very special individuals whose accolades and accomplishments have propelled them into the SECURITY SALES & INTEGRATION Hall of Fame. In alphabetical order and matching the sequence of quotes, 2012’s Hall of Fame class is: Ted Geiszler, John Mabry, Joe Nuccio, Pam Petrow and Ron Rothman.

Founded in 2004 to represent the apogee of honor for extraordinary professionalism, conduct and achievement, each year SSI‘s Hall of Fame pays tribute to those remarkable people who have had an unforgettable impact on the industry, continuously sustained over the duration of a long and illustrious career. Honorees are recognized in an official induction ceremony held during the SAMMY Awards on the eve of ISC West (March 27) at the Venetian Hotel.

This year’s group encompasses a broad swatch of excellence from many walks of the electronic security industry. This includes access control innovation (Geiszler); trade association and business management (Mabry); acquisition mastery, and generosity to industry and community (Nuccio); alarm communications, training and company leadership (Petrow); and providing dealers products/solutions and opportunities (Rothman).

Nominated by past inductees and other luminaries, these five now join 57 others in the industry’s pantheon. The following profiles encapsulate how each one of them met challenges head-on, and enriched themselves, those with whom they have associated and the industry at large. SSI is pleased to officially welcome these exemplary and distinguished members of the security community into the Hall of Fame.
