NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Electronic Security Association (ESA) installed Marshall Marinace, owner of Yorktown Heights, N.Y.-based Marshall Alarm Systems, as president for 2014-2016 during its annual membership meeting, held here during the Electronic Security Expo (ESX).

“Having been involved with association boards and committees for the past 30 years and counting, my personal goal is to continue the legacy and ongoing development of strong leadership that has made ESA the foremost industry association,” he says. “I am therefore honored and humbled to have been given the opportunity to fill the role as ESA president for the next term.”
