June 2, 2022
PSA and Security Systems News developed the new Integrator of the Year and Bill Bozeman Awards in 2021 to identify the leading systems integrators within security, from smaller, local integrators all the way up to the big nationals. Integrators were nominated and judged on financial success, impact and involvement in the industry, commitment to community, commitment to diversity and inclusion and employee satisfaction.

 

The inaugural award ceremony was held at PSA TEC 2022 in Denver, Colorado, on May 16. PSA Vice President of Marketing and Events Candice Aragon and Security Systems News Managing Editor Cory Harris presented the Integrator of the Year awards and the overall winner, the Bill Bozeman Award. Founder of Bozeman Strategic Solutions and former PSA CEO Bill Bozeman was also in attendance to hand out awards including the one named in his honor to recognize his years of dedicated service to the industry.
