Sony security exec joins SIA’s board of directors
Mark Collett, General Manager of Sony Electronics’ Security Systems Division has joined the Security Industry Association’s (SIA) Board of Directors.
Collett has a background in developing standards for Ethernet as well as network and system management, plus broad experience in the IT industry. He joined Sony Electronics in August 2010, charged with spearheading the Security Systems Division’s transition from a product‐centric focus to that of a total solutions provider, redefining the group’s go‐to‐market strategy. Collett’s 20‐plus years of industry experience include a recent position as managing principal and business strategist for IBM’s Digital Video Surveillance business, where he defined and led its partnering strategy.
“This is a tremendous honour, and I am excited to serve alongside many of our industry’s leaders,” said Collett. “This is a period of rapid change in the security business, and SIA’s efforts are now more important than ever as we chart a course through uncertainty to opportunity.”
“During Mark’s tenure at Sony, he has demonstrated leadership in developing relationships with leading security innovators and technology developer,” said Don Erickson, CEO of the Security Industry Association. “We look forward to his participation on the Security Industry Association’s Board of Directors.”
