Doyle Security Systems CEO Kevin Stone to lead ESA finance committee

Sept. 22, 2022

Kevin Stone, CEO of Doyle Security Systems in Rochester, NY, who has recently been appointed as Treasurer on the Electronic Security Association’s Board of Directors, additionally becomes chair of ESA’s Finance Committee.  

“My goal is to make things even better. Anything we can do to increase ESA membership is very good for the industry and obviously a lot of our revenue comes from there so that’s important.” Stone continues. 

The Electronic Security Association’s Finance Committee meets quarterly and oversees the finances and investment portfolio of the association. It is also responsible for reviewing the annual operating budget, supporting internal controls compliance, and approving the independent auditor’s report.  

“First of all, ESA is in tremendous shape already. Coming out of the pandemic I was a little concerned about what the finances might look like, and what I found was that ESA is a very healthy organization that’s already in a great position.” says Kevin Stone, Chair of ESA’s Finance Committee  

The Finance Committee also provides governance for ESA’s investment programs, and with their industry expertise, they bring ideas to build the Association’s revenue to become more financially stable. These programs are incredibly beneficial to the industry, such as the Security America insurance program as well as their biggest event, The Electronic Security Expo.  

The committee has also recently selected new members including Jennifer Holloway from CIBC Bank who brings in extensive knowledge of the alarm industry and Brian Duffy from Per Mar Security.
