The 2022 Executive Partnerships that Take Our Industry to Greater Heights
ESA’s 2022 Executive Strategic Partners invest annually in the Association to grow important initiatives, improve our members’ businesses, and take the industry to greater heights. Without these partnerships, ESA, which is a nonprofit organization, would not be able to fulfill its mission of providing high quality resources, advocacy, connections, and education for electronic security and life safety professionals.
These visionary partners are helping their customers and prospective customers to grow and optimize their businesses, ensuring the oldest trade association in the industry continues to gain traction as an advocate for the pro-installing community. They have been a huge support to ESA and the industry at large for years, especially throughout the difficulties of the recent pandemic.
ESA wants to honor these partners for their support and recognize their efforts in our Executive Strategic Partnership Program by sharing some words they have for our community.
The 2022 Diamond Executive Strategic Partner:
“We’re proud to continue to be a strategic partner of the Electronic Security Association, and to help provide resources, advocacy, connections and education for electronic security and life safety professionals,” says Scott Harkins, Vice President of Sales, Resideo. “As families and businesses continue to recover from a turbulent couple of years – with additional uncertainty ahead, supporting our professional industry with trends, education and resources is essential as they continue to protect what matters most.”
The 2022 Platinum Executive Strategic Partner:
“We’ve been an ESP for many years. 2022 marked our second year as the exclusive Platinum Level Executive Strategic Partner with ESA, showing our support in even stronger, farther-reaching ways, and we saw tremendous value in being a partner” says George Brody, President of Telguard. “Security services are essential, and the ESA organization is a key partner that helps us support the professional security industry. Our alarm communication expertise ensures first responders get life-saving fire and intrusion signals that our dealers rely on. Dealers help their customers protect what’s most important to them, and we make sure our dealers get all the support they need. We look forward to our partnership with ESA moving forward. If it’s worth protecting, it’s worth investing in the best.”
The 2022 Gold Executive Strategic Partners:
“ESA is a great resource for security professionals who want to continue to learn and grow. As Steve Jobs once said, “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work.” In the same way, I believe NAPCO Security Technologies and ESA are committed to furthering the great impact security & security professionals can make in this ever-changing world.”
“Security America is happy to continue supporting ESA and the industry at large through the strategic partnership program. We are an industry-focused insurance program, specializing in the needs of security integration and monitoring companies. Our industry expertise means we understand the unique problems that ESA’s members might face: injury to workers, property damage, lawsuits and more. Our partnership with ESA ensures that we can continue to reach and help educate ESA members on the savings they can receive on their insurance policies.”
“We’re pleased to partner with ESA again and share the common goal of helping integrators adapt to a dynamic industry while growing their business. By partnering with ESA, we’re able to highlight Snap One’s customer first approach, expanded product offering with over 10,000 SKUs, and our ability as a manufacturer to drive higher profits for partners with our product lines to a very engaged and loyal membership.”
The 2022 Silver Executive Strategic Partners:
“Altronix is proud to support ESA as a Strategic Partner to help in promoting all the resources that are offered to the security industry. As a longstanding partner, we continue to see the growth and value ESA brings to our peers as well as educating all the new security industry members.” – Vincent Pancaldo, Marketing & Creative Director – Altronix
DMP – Digital Monitoring Products:
“Once again the ESA provides us with the ability to engage with dealers, which allows us to focus on delivering the products and services that they need to be successful,” Mark Hillenburg, VP of Industry Relations at DMP, says. “ESA is a real asset to not only the industry as a whole, but also to companies that are looking to service or sell into the security industry. All the best companies know it’s smart to support associations. It’s an honor to be a part of the ESA Strategic Partnership Program.”
The 2022 First Time Strategic Partners:
“ICT is proud to partner with ESA,” says Damon Standish, President – ICT USA. “As we continue to build our presence in North America and beyond, we strongly feel that being a part of an organization, like ESA, that nurtures and grows the security industry is of the upmost importance. Our partners tell us that the training, support, and opportunities they receive via ESA are world class. We look forward to working together as we continue to bring more unified access and intrusion solutions to integrators and customers across the USA.”
Kings III Emergency Communications:
“At Kings III, we have been specializing in emergency elevator communications for over three decades, but just in the past few years we launched our Dealer Program targeting fire and security integrators. During that time, our partnership with ESA has been a large factor in growing our Dealer Program at higher– than– expected rates. ESA has given us opportunities to grow our brand quickly in a new vertical as well as make real relationships and connections with industry peers, which is why we look forward to continuing our partnership with ESA – we know the value is there.”
NMC – National Monitoring Center:
“2022 marks ten years that NMC has been a member of the Electronic Security Association. As the industry has continued to overcome challenges throughout the past few years brought on by the pandemic and supply chain issues, ESA has been diligent in providing the latest research, trends, and skills necessary to combat issues by offering events, training, and more. Partnering with ESA empowers NMC to succeed in our customer-first approach and brings greater visibility to our brand and mission.” - Woodie Andrawos, President of the National Monitoring Center
“For more than 20 years, Telit has delivered award-winning secure and integrated IoT solutions for our customers. We pioneered an end-to-end system approach to ensure all the pieces work together and continue to invest in technologies and services that push the industry forward. We are excited to partner with ESA and share their interest in furthering the electronic security and life safety industry.”
“In 2022, we successfully introduced Western Digital’s WD Purple™ smart video storage solutions to the ESA community that support a widening array of use cases, from smarter cities and factories to more secure homes thanks to smart video doorbells” says Sherman Tam, NA Partner Success Lead. Enabled by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), an emerging class of smart video applications now goes beyond just surveillance. With the adoption of new technologies like smart video analytics (which can be deployed across cameras, cloud, and hybrid environments), video surveillance storage solutions must also evolve. Western Digital is looking forward in partnering with more ESA members in 2023.”
Additionally, we would like to honor AlarMax and Omnilert for their support as 2022-2023 First Time Executive Strategic Partners.
We are incredibly thankful for all these companies do to contribute to the industry that we all love and share, and we want to give them a huge thank you for their partnership and support throughout 2022.
