SIA names Allegion and Feenics as 2021 SIA Members of the Year
The Security Industry Association (SIA) has announced that Allegion and Feenics will each receive a 2021 SIA Member of the Year Award. SIA will present Allegion and Feenics with their awards at The Advance, SIA’s annual membership meeting, which will be hosted March 23 as a virtual event.
“SIA commends Allegion and Feenics for their exceptional involvement in and contributions to SIA and the security industry as a whole and is proud to honor these innovative, engaged companies as the 2021 SIA Members of the Year,” said Pierre Trapanese, chair of the SIA Board of Directors, in a prepared statement.
Allegion is a long-time SIA corporate member that participates in a variety of SIA programs, events, products and services.
“Allegion is honoured to accept this award on behalf of our employees, who truly are the foundation of our partnership with SIA,” said Tim Eckersley, senior vice-president of Allegion International. “Since our inception, Allegion has worked with and through SIA to make a difference on the issues that not only matter to our industry but also to our customers. We’re thankful for engagement opportunities through groups like SIA RISE and the Women in Security Forum, as well as affiliate organizations like the Partner Alliance for Safer Schools (PASS), among others, that facilitate critical conversations, networking and idea sharing.”
Feenics has been a SIA member since 2015. The company’s employees have participated in the SIA RISE Scholarship program, and the firm was an event sponsor of AcceleRISE 2020.
“Feenics is honored to be presented with a SIA Member of the Year Award. We have been a SIA member since our founding and have always benefited from the reciprocal value of contributing to the association and drawing from its impressive array of resources,” said Denis Hébert, president of Feenics and former chair of the SIA Board of Directors. “Participating in events, on committees, on the Board of Directors and in the training, as well as contributing to events, training or surveys, in addition to benefiting from valuable publications and research, provides any member with an invaluable return on investment.”
