CSAA Excellence Awards, ESA Weinstock and Jackson Awards Winners Announced
The winners of some of the industry's most prominent awards have been announced, as CSAA named the recipients of their annual Excellence Awards, sponsored by SDM Magazine, and ESA named the honorees of the 2012 Weinstock and Jackson Awards.
At Tuesday evening's Weinstock and Jackson Awards Celebration, ESA announced Dan Budinoff, president and owner of Security Specialists in Stamford, CT, as the Morris F. Weinstock Person of the Year, and Bob McVeigh, VP/General Manager of Security Solutions, Inc. as the Sara E. Jackson Memorial Award recipient.
Budinoff, who has supported ESA for more than 35 years and has served as a member of the education and training committee, as vice chairman of the NTS committee, and chairman of the election committee (2001-2004), won the Sara E. Jackson award in 2004.
“He has been passionate in the development of installation and service techniques which lead to the development of NTS and the Level 1 course. He is an avid advocate for workforce training in the industry," says last year's Morris F. Weinstock winner and immediate past president Mike Miller. "He's a feisty guy that supports ESA on a national and on the chartered chapter level. He has influenced others to participate and become part of the leadership.”
McVeigh, a former president of CASIA, has lead ESA's Industry Affairs committee since 2008. “ESA is truly fortunate to have Bob McVeigh as a committee chairman, and as one of our most active and influential volunteers,” says 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.”
