PSA announced today its president, Ric McCullough, has joined the Executive Council for the Security Industry Association. McCullough, who has over 35 years experience in the security industry, has been with PSA for over seven years and was promoted from the role of chief operating officer to president in July of this year.

“SIA is honored to have Ric join the Executive Council,” SIA CEO Don Erickson said. “Ric’s extensive business experience as president of PSA Security Network was a natural fit for the Council. He brings the unique perspective of an organization that connects security and AV integrators with solutions from many member companies, while concurrently offering education and training programs that are widely respected.”

SIA’s Executive Council is a diverse group of senior executives from SIA member companies who provide input on material changes within the security industry and who deliver feedback to help guide and validate SIA’s programs and initiatives. The Executive Council offers a chance for leaders to share ideas, confer on trends shaping their businesses and directly provide perspectives to SIA’s leadership on the needs of their member companies.

“I feel privileged to be invited to join such a prestigious group of executives as both SIA and its Executive Council are thought leaders in the security industry.” said McCullough. “SIA and PSA have long been partners and our relationship brings value to the members of both organizations.”

McCullough will join the Executive Council for his first meeting at SIA’s Securing New Ground this week in New York.
