The Security Industry Association (SIA) has named Lee Odess, CEO of Access Control Executive Brief, as the 2023 recipient of the SIA Committee Chair of the Year Award.

SIA will present Odess with the award at The Advance, SIA’s annual membership meeting, which will be held March 28 during ISC West.

According to the association, Odess was instrumental in launching SIA’s Proptech Advisory Board in 2022; he also serves as the group’s chair.

“Being recognized as SIA’s Committee Chair of the Year is an honour. I accept it on behalf of the 80 individuals, their companies and Edison Shen, who have worked tirelessly to get the Proptech Advisory Board off the ground and rolling. We have only gotten started,” said Odess in a statement. “I also want to recognize Don Erickson, the SIA Board of Directors, John Mack and Steve Van Till for supporting the effort from idea to execution. It shows SIA’s vision, high level of curiosity and leadership. Thank you all for the trust and opportunity. I do not take it lightly, and it is a great honour. Thank you.”


Under Odess’ leadership, the SIA Proptech Advisory Board has held a variety of in-person and virtual meetings. Additionally, Odess has authored and collaborated on several proptech-related articles for SIA, helped produce a series of practitioner conversations with leaders in commercial real estate and led the efforts around SIA’s Proptech Report, produced in partnership with CREtech, which evaluates proptech trends, market size and buying interests affiliated with security solutions in commercial real estate, including office environments and multifamily housing. Additionally, he assisted in kickstarting the Proptech Advisory Board Speaker Series and in developing the “Definition of Proptech” video.
