NSCA’s (National Systems Contractors Association) new executive committee and board of directors officially took the reins Sunday, with new president Josh Shanahan, president and CEO of Sport View Technologies, taking the baton from Kelly McCarthy of Genesis Integration to highlight several changes.
“NSCA members are facing a tremendous amount of competition and change,” says Shanahan in the NSCA announcement.
“I’m hoping to help NSCA remain extremely relevant to its members as we provide products, resources, and advisers that can help them navigate their way to success.”
McCarthy, president and CEO of Genesis Integration, will serve as the executive committee’s immediate past president after his two-year stint as president, replacing Michael Hester of Beacon Communications.
Hester will continue to serve NSCA by joining its Leadership Development Committee, helping weigh in on long-range planning decisions.

- Mike Boettcher, CEO at New Era Technologies, will move from secretary to vice president
- Dave Ferlino, regional operations manager at Whitlock, will transition from treasurer to secretary
- Anne Sellers, managing principal at Sensory Technologies, will now serve as treasurer

Rob Simopoulos, the co-founder of cybersecurity firm Defendify, saw his three-year board term ends on June 30. Simopoulos will continue to serve the National Systems Contractors Association as part of the Business Accelerator program.
“The NSCA Board of Directors for 2018-2019 represent the diversity of our membership very well when it comes to managed services, company size and location, and the types of industry challenges they face,” says NSCA executive director Chuck Wilson.
“Josh Shanahan is becoming NSCA president at a crucial time. As a result, NSCA will be well-positioned to expand its offerings for integrators and manufacturers as their needs change along with the industry.”
