The Electronic Security Association (ESA), Irving, Texas, announced that David Koenig, partner of Capital Fire & Security, Madison, Wis., is the winner of the 2012 Morris F. Weinstock Person of the Year. The announcement came during the association’s 2013 ESA Leadership Summit in Orlando, Fla. The Weinstock award recognizes an individual for outstanding achievement and ongoing efforts on behalf of the association.
Koenig’s dedication to the security industry, his distinguished performance for the advancement of the industry, his leadership roles on both the national and state levels, his work on several ESA committees, and his tireless support of the association have led to his selection as this year’s Morris F. Weinstock Person of the Year, ESA said.
In 1981, Koenig became involved with the security industry as a central station dispatcher for Mid-Wisconsin Security. Subsequently, he held a number of management positions in firms large and small that provided a variety of security services. His experience over the years includes sales, system installation, project management, design, budgeting, consulting and business management. Koenig’s leadership role in association activities resulted in the 2010 Sara E. Jackson Memorial Award. That award was named in honor of the 1950-51 ESA President Sara E. Jackson, and is presented to an ESA committee chair who has displayed outstanding leadership. Over the years, Koenig’s involvement in ESA included chairing the Budget/Audit and Investment committees as well as serving on the Executive, Education and Political Action committees.
He has served as treasurer of ESA since 2007.
“David’s knowledge, experience, and leadership have had a significant impact on our association and the industry,” said ESA president John Knox. “We are proud to honor David with this award for the countless hours he has dedicated to ESA as a volunteer leader.”
This year’s ESA Weinstock/Jackson Award celebration will be held in Nashville, Tenn., on June 18, 2013.
