SIA Honors Hirsch Electronics With Statesman Award


The Security Industry Association (SIA) has honored Hirsch Electronics’ Vice President of Marketing Rob Zivney with the SIA Statesman Award. The award was presented to Zivney for his work on Personal Identity Verification (PIV) related issues and recent congressional testimony, as well as his leadership role in SIA webinars and the SIA Government Summit.

“Rob has been instrumental in support of SIA’s government relations programs and initiatives,” says SIA Executive Director Richard Chace. “His extraordinary leadership has positioned SIA to address the public policy challenges impacting the electronic physical security industry.”

The award was presented during SIA’s 2008 Government Summit in Washington, D.C. It recognizes continued efforts to educate and establish working relationships with the federal government and industry leaders.

Zivney has spent more than 30 years in the security and building controls industries with expertise in access control and intelligent building systems. He serves on the SIA Board of Directors, chairs SIA’s PIV Working Group, and represents SIA to the Smart Card Interagency Advisory Board (IAB) Physical Access Committee.
