16 Security Business / / May 2019 SECURITY WATCH ISC WEST RECAP Select Security Headlines Honorees at 2019 Fast50 Awards Security Business magazine unveiled its eighth annual Fast50 at ISC West, where Select Security of Lancaster, Pa., was named as the fastest-growing security integrator in North America. The magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Paul Rothman, also revealed the full list of 50 fast-growing firms, and honored the top five companies on stage at the event, which was sponsored by the Security Industry Association. Select Security rose to the top of the rankings thanks to an aggressive M&A strategy coupled with healthy organic growth; in fact, the company has made 15 acquisitions in the past two years, including purchasing all of the U.S.-based accounts from AlarmForce in 2017. “A company of the size we are today is a very different animal than when I started Select Security in 2003,” says Patrick Egan, CEO of Select Security. “Who would have thought that 16 years later, we would have more than 80,000 customers and 24 branch offices.” Select Security President Steve Firestone accepted the award on behalf of the company. The rest of the top five fastest-growing security integrators were also honored on stage. They included: Alexander Schuil of No. 2 Briscoe Protective Systems, Centereach, N.Y.; VP Mike Kuhn of No. 3 Convergint Technologies; the entire physcial security team for No. 4 Presidio Technologies, led by VP of Physical Security Tom Montes; and Jamie Bumgardner, COO of No. 5-ranked Prime Communications.
