SHDA's Value -         Sean Steinmann

John Burke (left) and Sean Steinmann (right)

I initially joined the SHDA committees and board to volunteer for and support the association and the annual Summit that had added value to our company. Only after being involved in SHDA at this level did I realize the vital function it had in helping to keep our channel viable and strong. I developed the belief that no matter how well we run our business, we will be in trouble if security hardware distributors aren’t seen as the most effective way to get products to market. Because of this, I believe that while volunteering because “it’s the right thing to do” is still extremely valid, the more pressing reason for someone in my position to become involved can be indirectly tied to the long term success of their company.
