NSCA added three new officers to its 2017-2018 board of directors: Dale Bottcher, senior VP of sales and marketing at AVI-SPL; Brad Caron, president and owner of SIGNET Electronic Systems; and Christina De Bono, president of ClearTech Media.
Bottcher, Caron and De Bono began their three-year terms as board members July 1, joining Ray Bailey, president at Lone Star Communications; Anne Sellers, managing principal at Sensory Technologies; and Rob Simopoulos, partner at Launch Security.
Signet was the subject of CI’s first cover profile in January 2011, AVI-SPL was CI’s first Integrator of the Year in 2011 and ClearTech became CI’s first cover profile with a female president in May 2017.
Bottcher “has helped AV and IT technology managers realize their visions in all types of applications and environments – from large-scale training centers to flexible huddle rooms,” according to the NSCA announcement. He currently leads AVI-SPL’s sales strategy with enterprise accounts and public sector clients.
In his 30 years in the industry, Caron “has overseen SIGNET’s growth from $1.8 million to more than $30 million in annual revenue,” according to the press release. “He identifies future strategies, ways to recognize existing and recruit new talent, and ideas for leveraging the experience and expertise of SIGNET’s vice presidential team.”
De Bono’s background “involves handling high-profile videoconferencing and AV projects with corporations and higher-education institutions,” according to the NSCA announcement. “In the past two years, she has dedicated her time to leading ClearTech’s successful transition to a service-based revenue model.”
All NSCA board of directors executive committee members continue their positions from 2016-2017: president Kelly McCarthy, president of Genesis Integration; immediate past president Michael Hester, founder of Beacon Communications; vice president Josh Shanahan, president and CEO of Sport View Technologies; secretary Michael Boettcher, CEO of Advanced AV; and treasurer Dave Ferlino, regional operations manager at Whitlock.
“The NSCA Board of Directors for 2017-2018 is a very solid team,” says NSCA executive director Chuck Wilson in the association announcement. “They represent our membership well in terms of size, location, and technology offerings. With these varying viewpoints represented, NSCA will be well-positioned to continue to offer services for integrators with different needs. The board plans to spend its time making sure that NSCA is a valuable resource for any integrator, no matter its size.”
