ESA Eye Opener Breakfast to Name SSN's 20 Under 40 at ESX
April 9, 2012 - During the ESA Eye Opener Breakfast at the Electronic Security Expo (ESX), Security Systems News (SSN) will name the 2012 members of its 20 Under 40 group, highlighting the security industry's next generation of leaders. The breakfast, sponsored by the Electronic Security Association's Young Security Professionals (YSP) Group, will be held on Tuesday, June 26 at 9 a.m. at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel.
"This breakfast is set to be an invaluable networking opportunity," says Todd Gaito, chair of ESA's YSP Group. "Not only that, but isn't it inspiring to hear from some of the most successful young people in our industry and capture some tips for developing a prosperous career? So much of success is attributed to who you know and this is a prime event to make those industry connections. We're really looking forward to this."
"We are very excited to be joining the YSP group to honor our 20 Under 40 Class of 2012," says Tim Purpura, publisher of SSN.
The group is chosen by the editors of SSN based upon the nominee's dedication to the security industry and leadership abilities.
"It will be the leadership of this next generation that will continue the legacy of strength, determination and innovation that made the industry what it is today," says Purpura.
For the first time, SSN will also be honoring mentors of the 20 Under 40 group, chosen by the editors of SSN after conducting interviews with group members.
"Some of the most remarkable '20 Under 40' winners have attributed their success to the guidance of a mentor," says Martha Entwistle, editor of SSN.
The breakfast will include an awards ceremony and panel presentation featuring a current 20 Under 40 winner, a 20 Under 40 alum and a mentor. Panelists will share their success stories, experiences and tips for a prosperous career in the industry.
YSP events are sponsored by Interlogix, Honeywell, Telguard, Tri-Ed Northern Video Distribution, ADI, Altronix, Security America Risk Retention Group, System Sensor, Axis Communications and Vivint.
