July 6, 2015 Hikvision, the world’s leading provider of innovative, award-winning video surveillance products and solutions, was honored as an Executive Strategic Partner of the Electronic Security Association (ESA) at a special event on June 24, 2015.
Established in 1948, ESA is the largest trade association representing the electronic life safety and security industry. Member companies install, integrate, monitor, and/or manufacture intrusion and fire detection, video surveillance and electronic access control systems for commercial, residential, industrial and governmental clients. ESA established the Executive Strategic Partnership (ESP) program in 2008 to provide funding and support for ESA programs that promote and augment the security industry.
Hikvision’s commitment to innovative security technology and enrichment opportunities for their customers make them a well-suited partner to ESA, which provides leading industry education and valuable benefits to security installing member companies, enhances public safety, and serves as a leader in the industry.
A special reception, ESA Celebrates, was held in Baltimore on June 24, the first evening of the Electronic Security Expo (ESX) there. This event provided an opportunity to network and celebrated the contributions of ESA volunteers, committees, professional groups and Executive Strategic Partners. The reception also provided attendees the chance to learn more about ESA’s annual philanthropy project, ESA Gives Back, and their chosen charity for 2015: The Green Beret Foundation. The event included recognition for ESA’s Executive Strategic Partners and Professional Group Sponsors. Alex Asnovich, Director of Marketing for Hikvision USA, accepted a plaque on behalf of Hikvision.
“Hikvision is proud to support ESA and we are thrilled to be recognized as one of their most valuable partners,” Mr. Asnovich stated. “As Hikvision continues its rapid growth in North America, we are dedicated to cultivating strong relationships with industry-leading organizations such as ESA.”
“On behalf of all of our members, I would like to thank Hikvision for their support and commitment to ESA and the industry,” said ESA president Marshall Marinace. “Hikvision’s financial support as a Silver Executive Strategic Partner of ESA ensures that we are able to continue to raise the bar for our members and offer valuable member benefits. We look forward to working with Hikvision as part of our ESP program for years to come.”
