Irving, Texas, March 15, 2010 - The Electronic Security Association (ESA) is pleased to announce that RSI Video Technologies, Kleinbard, Bell & Brecker and System Sensor have agreed to become a 2010 Young Security Professionals (YSP) Partner Member.
As YSP Partner Members, RSI Video Technologies, Kleinbard, Bell & Brecker, and System Sensor earn the unique opportunity to participate in events tailored specifically to YSP. YSP is a group of young professionals between the ages of 25 and 45 who are currently, or are up-and-coming, managers and executives in companies that sell, install, service or monitor electronic security and life safety systems. As Partner Members, RSI Video Technologies and System Sensor will gain exposure to qualified prospects and decision-makers through print and electronic media, YSP events and the ESA Web site. Additionally, in their Partner Member roles, the two companies will have the benefit of networking with these young professionals at YSP-specific events to build relationships with this next generation of industry leaders.
When asked for their reasons behind sponsoring the two-year-old group, the sponsors had this to say:
Keith Jentoft, president of Videofied - RSI Video Technologies, said, "Young Security Professionals are already pursuing tomorrow’s expectations with emerging technologies and processes. Concepts like priority law enforcement response to enhanced video alarms are fresh ideas the YSP can use to create new value in the industry. Videofied has succeeded by partnering with innovators to create new incremental security markets in copper theft, construction and outdoor security. We are excited to officially partner with YSP and work to maximize the value of new technologies and new ideas with this dynamic group.”
Eric Pritchard, partner and YSP legal counsel at Kleinbard, Bell & Brecker, said, "Partnering with the YSP is one of the most enjoyable and fulfilling experiences I've had working in the security industry. YSP members have fresh ideas, determination to put their ideas into action and the persistence to guarantee their success. It's comforting to see the future of our industry in their hands,"
"In order to advance our industry, I have always believed we can accomplish more collectively than we do as individual companies,” said Dave Lyons, vice president of sales for System Sensor. "The industry associations and their corresponding meetings, programs and activities are great venues to bring companies together for the common good, whether it is for codes and standards development, training, or government relations. System Sensor is pleased to invest in ESA and our future leaders via our support of YSP.”
