Security Systems News asked him five questions. Are you married? Kids? I have been married to my wife Eileen for 26 years. We have two kids. My daughter, Kate, just got married a month ago, and she is a Georgetown graduate. My son, Michael, is currently in Fort Lee, Va., for his training; he went through ROTC at Oregon State and is a second lieutenant in the Oregon National Guard. What are some of your hobbies? Living in the Pacific Northwest, my wife and I do a lot of biking when it is not the rainy season, and I fish a lot and also like to do some running. It is a pretty nice place to live. How did you first get started in security? I was part of General Electric and I worked for the financial services division and I lived in Phoenix for most of my life. Then my mom and sister moved to Oregon, and I saw that GE had completed an acquisition that was to be known as GE Interlogix, so I was one of the first GE people to come in as an operations leader in the company's Tualatin, Oregon, site, which is how I ended up in Oregon. What do like most about the security industry? I love the security industry—it is what I am passionate about! And it is tied into the fact that what we do makes a difference, however clichéd that might sound. I am really excited to be working with [ACRE CEO] Joe Grillo, as he knows the industry so well and really understands where technology is going. Have you read any good books lately? Recently, I read Crazy Horse and Custer by Steven E. Ambrose. My wife and I completed a long trek this past summer in South Dakota, so I got to see where the Battle of Little Bighorn was. Another good book I read recently is Endurance by Alfred Lansing, which is about [British explorer Ernest] Shackleton's voyage to reach the South Pole … getting caught in the ice, saving his crew. —Paul Ragusa Five Questions COMPANY (ticker) Price Previous 52-WK HIGH 52-WK LOW EPS ADT (ADT) 9.03 11.94 13.02 8.70 -0.59 (ALRM) 38.90 37.07 49.49 29.70 0.59 Allegion (ALLE) 85.37 80.80 89.81 73.93 2.85 Ascent Capital Group (ASCMA) 4.80 6.41 17.84 4.72 -8.82 Avigilon (AVO.TO) 26.97 26.83 27.07 13.15 0.63 Cisco Systems Inc.
