Angela White Elected as ESA Vice President/President Elect by the ESA Board of Directors
White is the third female to be president of the ESA and NBFAA, and the first since 1988.
IRVING, Texas — Angela White with Central 1 Security was elected to ESA Vice President/President Elect of the Electronic Security Association (ESA). White will begin her term on July 1, 2016, and will serve in the position until the end of her term on June 30, 2018.
White was elected by the ESA Board of Directors on Nov. 5, 2015 following the resignation of Thomas G. Eggebrecht, Ph.D., from the position. Eggebrecht’s decision to resign was a difficult one, but in the end he felt it was in the best interest of the association. During the same board meeting, Director of Training & Licensing Compliance with Xfinity Home, Roy Pollack was also elected as a vice president, filling the vacancy created by Ms. White’s election.
“I would like to thank the ESA Board of Directors for electing me to this important position,” said White. “This is a very exciting time for ESA, our members and our industry, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to serve all. ESA volunteers and staff have been diligently working to position our association to be an indispensable resource for the industry. I look forward to serving as a president focused on delivering valuable resources, advocacy, connections and education to professionals in our electronic security and life safety industry.”

White will serve as the third female president in the history of ESA and the National Burglar and Fire Alarm Association (NBFAA), and the first female president since Patricia M. Smith took office in 1988. White brings 29 years of experience within the industry; her roles have ranged from technician to company ownership. She holds several Fire Alarm Licenses and NTS accreditations. White is the founder and previous owner of Pro-Tech Systems of Vermont and currently an equity partner and the executive vice president of Central 1 Security in Wisconsin. She is a past president of the Vermont Electronic Security Association and has served on ESA’s Executive Committee since 2014.
“Angela has been very involved at the chapter and national association levels for many years. She is well qualified for this position and her desire to serve our industry is second to none,” said ESA President Marshall Marinace. “I look forward to passing the baton to Angela next year as I know she will do great things for ESA and our industry.”
