“Ray Dean has always put the industry first through his career and as a member of the SIA Board of Directors,” said Don Erickson, CEO of SIA, in a prepared statement. “The entire SIA community admires his accomplishments and strong efforts to foster collaboration within the security industry.”
A member of the SIA board of directors, Dean has also served as secretary, vice chairman and chairman of the New York City Chapter of ASIS, and remains chairman of the ASIS New York City Annual Trade Show.
