“ESA has meant so much to me and done so much to help my business. Being president gives me the opportunity to give back to the industry and the association. I hope to support the industry and other businesses in the same way that I’ve been supported,” said D’Ascoli.

Mike Horgan, owner of H&S Protection Systems Inc. in Stevens Point, Wisc., was elected to a two-year term as vice president.  John Knox, president/co-owner, Life & Property Security Systems Inc. of Knoxville, Tenn., was elected for a two-year term as vice president and Marshall Marinace, president, Marshall Alarm Systems of Yorktown, N.Y., was re-elected to a two-year term as vice president.

It is their obligation to act for and on behalf of the association and to maintain and adhere to the highest standards of ethical conduct,” said Pittsburgh Fire Chief Darryl Jones, who swore in the new members.

The new terms begin July 1. Current president, Michael A. Miller, will continue to serve on the Executive Committee for two years as immediate past president.
