The new Board Management Committee of the ASIS International Board of Directors was announced at Tuesday’s luncheon by ASIS President Geoffrey T. Craighead, CPP. The president in 2014 will be Richard E. Widup, Jr., CPP, senior director of corporate security for Purdue Pharma LP of Stamford, Connecticut. The new president-elect is Dave N. Tyson, CPP, senior director of global information security, business process and technology, S.C. Johnson & Son, Inc., of Racine, Wisconsin. The treasurer will be David C. Davis, CPP, senior manager, Northrup Grumman of San Bernadino, California, and the secretary will be Thomas J. Langer, CPP, vice president of security, BAE Systems, Inc., of Arlington, Virginia. Craighead will become the chairman of the Board of Directors in 2014.
Retiring from the chairmanship is Eduard J. Emde, CPP, development manager, Shell Oil, The Netherlands. “It has been my sincere privilege and honor serving ASIS International all these years,” said Emde.
Craighead then presented the Annual E. J. Cirscuoli, Jr., CPP, Volunteer Leadership Award to David B. Toon, CPP, senior account executive at Enterprise Security, Inc., of Phoenix, Arizona. Toon, said Craighead, had shown “remarkable dedication, perseverance, and commitment” during his 12-year membership that had “catapulted him up the volunteer leadership ladder. Within two years, he was Phoenix Chapter treasurer and within five years, he was the chapter chair. By 2010, he rose to become an assistant regional vice president and I predict that is not the end of his ascent.”
“We recognize this unique member’s selfless devotion to ASIS International, with special emphasis on the significant contributions made at the chapter level. While the Awards Committee was presented with many well-qualified candidates, this nominee stood above the rest,” Craighead stated.
After Toon accepted his award to audience applause, Craighead announced the winner of the Roy N. Bordes Council Member Award of Excellence. The award was established to recognize outstanding volunteer achievement and significant contribution to ASIS through council involvement.
This year’s winner, said Craighead, “has been a member of the ASIS Academic and Training Programs Council since 1997, and has served as its chair five times since 1998….His work with the council includes over a decade of organizing and leading the Annual Academic/Practitioner Symposium.” He then introduced Dave Gilmore, CPP, calling him “a security practitioner and educator, and his work ethic, professionalism, and accomplishments support him as a worthy recipient of the [award].”
