Louroe Electronics CEO Chairs 2015 SIA Government Summit

Richard Brent, Louroe Electronics CEO and recently elected member to the Security Industry Association's (SIA) Board of Directors, is chairing the 2015 SIA Government Summit, taking place in Washington, D.C. from June 8-10, 2015. Over the last several months, Brent has overseen the SIA Government Summit Planning Committee and has worked tirelessly with SIA staff to ensure this year’s conference would be on of SIA’s best.

“We are truly looking forward to this year’s Government Summit, which is expected to have record-breaking attendance,” said Richard Brent, CEO of Louroe Electronics. “To see change and growth in our industry, it is vital that security leaders learn from and develop great relationships with policy makers. I’m so appreciative of SIA for providing an opportunity for us to do that this week and for giving me the opportunity to spearhead the planning for this conference.”

Brent brings deep experience in security and government relations to the SIA Government Summit Planning Committee. He has led Louroe Electronics, world leader in audio monitoring technologies within the security industry, for the past six years. During that time, Louroe Electronics has grown to export its durable audio solutions to more than 50 countries and today has more than 800,000 signature Verifact microphones in use. Before joining Louroe Electronics, Brent worked for Solar Turbines, A Caterpillar Company, in which he spent 12 years as director of government affairs based in Washington, D.C. influencing multiple energy policies.

The SIA Government Summit brings together all facets of the security industry: executives, integrators, sales and marketing, and government relations professionals. Panels are geared towards doing business with government and gaining a better understanding of the trends facing the industry, and the event provides one-on-one networking time with government and private sector insiders.
