CEDAR RAPIDS, IA--The NSCA Board of Directors recently changed leadership during its annual member meeting in June during InfoComm 2010. Taking over as president of the NSCA Board is Ron Pusey, president/CEO of Communications Specialists, Inc. Additionally, Ingolf de Jong, president of General Communications, Inc., has moved to the vice-president position; Ray Bailey, president of Lone Star Communications, Inc., is the new treasurer; and Kelly McCarthy, president of Genesis Integration, Inc., was named the new secretary. All have been appointed to two-year terms.
“We are at a pivotal junction within the industry,” Pusey said. “During the next two years, NSCA will have the opportunity to focus on changing technologies and systems, and what that means to traditional systems integration companies. This will help us show our members how to take advantage of these changes as well as understand the issues surrounding them.”
Newly appointed to the Board of Directors is Paul Cronin, president/CEO of Atrion Networking Corporation, a 1nService Company. With more than 25 years of experience in the IT industry, Cronin represents the changing scope of the commercial electronic systems industry. His experience in both IT and physical security will allow NSCA to expand its member services to benefit these technology sectors of the industry. Cronin will also provide his broad knowledge of new revenue channels and business opportunities.
“I look forward to leveraging my 25 years of industry experience to provide innovative ideas that will help to expand the diversification of NSCA’s members and programs,” Cronin said.
Pusey’s focus for the association is directly related to buildling better integrators through the association and the services it provides. He plans to focus on cost-saving programs such as NSCA’s SystemsPlus Insurance Solutions, create more engaged and knowledgeable business owners, and highlight NSCA as the voice of the industry through its advocacy efforts.
