The Sara E. Jackson Award – named in honor of ESA’s president from
1950-51 – goes annually to a committee chairperson who displays outstanding
leadership, but Bob McVeigh’s role as a leader at ESA extends far beyond his
position as chair of the Industry Affairs committee. He also serves as a
knowledgeable industry spokesperson on a wide range of topics, and consistently
provides insight not only to colleagues, but also to media representatives
seeking to make sense of the latest industry news.
During more than 20 years in the industry, McVeigh’s career has covered
everything from sales operations and marketing to full responsibility for operations.
His volunteer work extends beyond ESA; for example, from 2008 to 2010, he served
as president of the Connecticut Alarm and Systems Integrators Association
(CASIA), which earned Chartered Chapter of the Year under his leadership in
"ESA is truly fortunate to have Bob McVeigh as a committee
chairman, and as one of our most active and influential volunteers,” said ESA
President Dom D’Ascoli. "He’s knowledgeable, he’s reliable, he cares about the
association, and he stands for everything you could ask for from a volunteer at
any level. Bob’s willing to give the most of his time and effort, and that
makes ESA stronger as a whole.”
Bob received the award during the Weinstock Jackson Awards Celebration on June 26 at ESX in Nashville. The Sara E. Jackson Award is graciously sponsored by
Honeywell, ESA’s exclusive Platinum Executive Strategic Partner.
