iluminar, a specialty security lighting manufacturer, announced that its CEO, Eddie Reynolds, has been selected to speak on a panel at ISC West 2019. Taking place April 9-12, 2019, ISC West will welcome over 30,000 security professionals and 1,000 exhibiting companies at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.

Reynolds will join a female-driven panel at ISC West on April 9 called “Being a Woman Owned Business Owner in the Security Industry is an Advantage, not a Disadvantage.” The discussion will center on the task of starting a business within the security industry, traditionally seen as male dominated. The panel of female entrepreneurs represent a security supplier, security integrator, security recruitment firm and a government security contracting consultant. Each woman will share what led her to start her own business as well as best practices for success.

“I am honored to speak alongside such exemplary women and discuss information and tools that can empower women to start their own businesses in the security industry,” Reynolds said. “I hope this panel inspires more women to be self-starters and leaders because a diverse workforce helps the entire industry to thrive."

The panel will feature the following executives: Maureen Carlo, business development manager at BCDVideo; Christine Lanning, president of Integrated Security Technologies; Rebecca Bayne, president of Bayne Consulting & Search Inc.; Lynn De Seve, president of GSA Schedules Inc.; and Eddie Reynolds, CEO and co-founder of iluminar Inc.
