Electronic Security Association Welcomes Jamie Vos as President
Vos, general manager of Bellingham, Wash.-based Security Solutions NW, will serve a two-year term as president of ESA.
DALLAS — The Electronic Security Association (ESA) recently introduced Jamie Vos as its incoming president.
Vos is general manager of Bellingham, Wash.-based Security Solutions NW. He assumed the role as president of ESA on July 1, succeeding Chris Mosley, president and CEO of Complete Security Systems in New Jersey. Vos’s two-year term will run to June 30, 2022.
Vos entered the security business in 1994 when he joined his father’s locksmithing company, Bellingham Lock and Safe. After working in various roles at the company, he eventually became general manager of the electronic security division.
Along with his brother, Toby Vos, the pair changed the name of the company to Security Solutions and grew the business from less than 15 employees to more than 60 in about a decade, according to an ESA member feature published on esaweb.org. The company still maintains the locksmith division, in addition to providing a variety of security and fire/life-safety services for residential and commercial clients.
“I have an awesome team surrounding me,” says Vos in the article. “We have a set of three core values: positive attitude, willingness to learn and problem solving. Holding to those three values and hiring and terminating based on those core values has really led to a cohesive group of people that want to be at Security Solutions. We really promote and value teamwork. We try to keep it engaging and keep that team and family mentality.”
Vos’s industry participation includes serving as president of WAESA, the state association of Washington, which led to his involvement as part of the Executive Committee at the national level.
“Jamie will bring new light to the association and I am excited for him. He is enthusiastic and energetic – something that ESA and its members will definitely benefit from,” Mosley states in the ESA member article. “Jamie is a seasoned veteran in our industry and his experience serving on the Executive Committee is a great advantage. He will have a great team behind him and together, with Jamie’s leadership, the association will thrive. He has my support and I have no doubt that Jamie will succeed in this role.”
Vos says his focus will be on driving ESA membership and proving the value of the association, along with buttressing workforce development and other core initiatives.
“I want to come alongside [ESA Executive Director & CEO Merlin Guilbeau] and work with the board to provide the necessary resources throughout this difficult time and, understanding that resources are limited, determine how we can allocate them in the best way for ESA to achieve its mission,” Vos says.
