Morgan Hertel, vice president of technology and innovation for Rapid Response Monitoring Services, Inc., was awarded The Monitoring Association (TMA)’s highest honor, the Stanley C. Lott Memorial Award for Exemplary Service, at the 2017 Annual Meeting in Scottsdale, Ariz., on October 11.

This award was created to honor the memory of Stanley C. Lott, a TMA (CSAA) past president renowned for his above-and-beyond efforts to lead and financially support the association.

“Morgan is someone who gives tirelessly of his time through committee work, responding on our digital community board, and in one-to-one consultation, all in an effort to improve our association and to educate others in the industry…including his competitors,” said Pamela J. Petrow, then-president of TMA, who presented the award.

Hertel has been with Rapid Response since 2012. He is the chair of TMA’s Contract Monitoring Council and, in June 2017, was elected to the position of vice president on the TMA board of directors.
