Bill Bozeman, president and chief executive officer of PSA Security Network, was named the 2012 recipient of the George R. Lippert Memorial Award. The award, which was first presented by the Security Industry Association (SIA) in 1989, recognizes outstanding contributions to SIA and the security industry. Bozeman was chosen to receive the award by a unanimous vote of former winners.

Throughout his career, Bozeman directed sophisticated electronic security projects for corporate America, the U.S. government and private institutions. In 2005, he was inducted into the Security Integration Hall of Fame, a lifetime achievement award that recognizes individuals whose distinguished careers helped shape the electronic security industry. In 2006, Bozeman was recognized as one of the security industry's 25 Most Influential Security Executives.

Bozeman is one of the most exceptional leaders within our industry, SIA stated. Among his strongest attributes is his genuine interest in working collaboratively with SIA to help grow the security industry and facilitate new opportunities for businesses to succeed, the association added.

The George R. Lippert Memorial Award will be presented at the SIA Security Week Gala, which will be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 30, 2012 at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers, New York.
