SSI Industry Hall of Fame Inductees

The SSI Industry Hall of Fame was founded in 2004 to represent the highest accolade for going above and beyond in professionalism, conduct and achievement in the security industry.

Established by Security Sales & Integration in 2004 to represent the ultimate recognition for performance excellence, the SSI Industry Hall of Fame annually enshrines those uncommon people who have etched out an indelible impression within the profession, sustained over the course of an entire career. These rare persons’ dedication and accomplishments make them uniquely irreplaceable. They are the business and technology innovators and humanitarians whose impact has molded and transformed the industry into the thriving, vibrant business it is today.

Honorees are chosen by the SSI Industry Hall of Fame Selection Committee, which under the oversight of Dan Ferrisi, Emerald commercial and security group editor,  is comprised of previous inductees and other industry leaders representative of the full spectrum of market sectors. Worthy candidates from any area of the electronic security industry (dealers, integrators, manufacturers, distributors, monitoring, business, etc.) are eligible for election. In addition, any industry professional may recommend a person to be considered by the Selection Committee.
