Security-Net, a global provider of security integration services, elected Jim Coleman to the leadership role of president of its Board of Directors for the next two years. Coleman, who serves president of Operational Security Systems, Atlanta, will become president of Security-Net in January 2014. He will replace Joe Liguori, who has been president since 2011.

Security-Net holds its election of officers once every two years, with a representative from each member company casting a vote during the election process. The election of officers for the 2014-2015 term took place in Chicago during a two-day meeting of Security-Net members held prior to the start of the ASIS International Annual Seminar & Exhibits held in September 2013.

“This year represents Security-Net 20th anniversary as an organization,” Coleman said. “As the newly elected president, I look forward to continuing to strengthen the organization and national accounts business, where we have experienced considerable growth serving large corporations, financial institutions and Fortune 500 companies.”

Security-Net is celebrating its 20th anniversary since it was founded by a small group of systems integrators who wanted to formally share best practices as business owners. Today, it has grown to include 20 independent systems integrators located throughout North America, plus three systems integrators internationally.

The group has formed several working committees, including one called Tech-Net that regularly reviews the latest technologies in the market and shares the best methods to address technology issues. Another committee, called Sales-Net, serves as a sales resource for project lead generation and strategies about how to build relationships with the customer.

As part of its election of a new board, Security-Net members also elected Skip Sampson, president of Koorsen Security Technology, Indianapolis, as vice president. Steve Morefield, president of Firstline Security Integration, Anaheim, Calif., was elected to the position of treasurer of Security-Net’s board of directors. Mike Painter, vice president of AlphaCorp Security, West Valley City, Utah, was elected to a two-year term as secretary.

Security-Net focuses on the integration of end-to-end security solutions including technologies such as access control, video surveillance, emergency mass notification and perimeter detection systems in aerospace, commercial offices, university campuses, airports, government, utilities, hospitals and pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities. Individual member companies, which make up the company’s regional locations, regularly share design solutions, troubleshooting tips, technology updates and marketing ideas to provide the most effective, up to date security management system for customers.
