Ben Cornett, president and CEO of Honeywell Security, Syosset, N.Y., received the 2006 Stanley C. Lott Award during the annual Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA) meeting in Rome, Italy. The award was presented to recognize Cornett’s support and leadership throughout his many years of involvement with the CSAA. “This is truly a great honor,” Cornett said when receiving the award. “I thank the CSAA and I feel privileged to be part of such a wonderful industry.” The Lott Award recognizes those individuals whose contributions to the CSAA and the industry are exceptional, and is the CSAA’s highest recognition of leadership and support.

“Ben Cornett’s always-available support mirrors Stan Lott’s memorable effort to assist CSAA. Ben’s many contributions include serving for over six years on the CSAA’s board of directors and serving as the chairman of the associate members’ liaison committee. In particular, his willingness to step up and address difficult decisions makes him a most worthy recipient,” said John Murphy, CSAA president.

Cornett became president of Honeywell Security in November 2002. Earlier, he served as president of ADEMCO Group, executive vice president of sales for ADEMCO Group, and president of ADEMCO Sensor Co., (ASC). Before joining ADEMCO in 1995, Cornett held the position of president and CEO of Intellisense and executive vice president of Blue Grass Electronics.
