SSI Establishes Industry Hall of Fame Induction Committee
Security Sales & Integration has formed a committee, whose members serve two-year terms, to administrate the process of selecting Hall of Fame inductees.
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. – Security Sales & Integration has established a selection committee process to identify inductees for the SSI Industry Hall of Fame. Previously, individuals were nominated for the Hall of Fame by Hall members and select industry peers.
Established 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.
The SSI Industry Hall of Fame Selection Committee, comprised of previous inductees and other industry leaders representative of the full spectrum of market sectors, will evaluate and choose a new class of special individuals to be honored. Worthy candidates from any area of the electronic security industry (dealers, integrators, manufacturers, distributors, monitoring, business, etc.) are eligible for election. In addition, anyone may recommend a person to be considered by the Selection Committee, whose members serve two-year terms.
“The SSI Industry Hall of Fame has established itself the past decade as the most important institution for recognizing special individuals for their great achievements and contributions to the electronic security industry, sustained over the course of a career,” says Editor-in-Chief/Associate Publisher Scott Goldfine. “I am delighted there is now an official selection committee, especially one comprised of highly distinguished Hall of Famers themselves, in place to generate nominations and help ensure the most worthy and deserving people are immortalized by induction into the Hall. This further entrenches the program as the standard to represent and promote our industry and its most important figures.”
The 2016-18 SSI Industry Hall of Fame Selection Committee members are:
- Bill Bozeman (systems integrators), President, PSA Security Network
- Alan Forman (suppliers), President, Altronix
- Ken Kirschenbaum (professional services), Principal, Kirschenbaum & Kirschenbaum
- Ralph Sevinor (alarm/security dealers), President, Wayne Alarm Systems
In addition to the committee, Ron Davis, president of Davis Mergers and Acquisitions Group, will serve as Chief Strategic Advisor. Davis, himself a Hall of Famer, is the emcee of the induction ceremony. Goldfine, who is founder and managing director of the Hall, will also assist in administrating the program.
SSI Industry Hall of Fame membership now totals 84. Go here to view a complete list of inductees. Each year SSI features the newly inducted class in its March ISC West Show Issue and hosts an official induction ceremony presentation during the SAMMYs event in Las Vegas on the eve of the industry’s biggest trade show. The 2017 program will be held April 4.
