DOTHAN, ALA. (November 19, 2020) – DSI Security Services, a national leader in the security service industry for more than 50 years, is proud to announce that Eddie Sorrells has been named to ASIS International’s Global Board of Directors. The company’s long-time Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel has been selected for a three-year At Large Director term beginning in 2021
“We salute Eddie on this well-deserved global distinction,” said Marty Clark, president of DSI Security Services. “We at DSI have seen how he brings so much energy and expertise to work every day in serving and elevating our company over three decades. Now ASI International will also benefit from those efforts and talents, and the security management industry will be all the better for it.”
The new directors of the Global Board were selected in October by a nominating committee consisting of 2019 ASIS President Christina Duffey, CPP; Global Board members Timothy McCreight, CPP, and Jaime P. Owens, CPP; and member-elected representatives Melissa Mack, CPP, Gary L. Miller, CPP, PCI, PSP, and Werner Cooreman, CPP, PSP. The committee evaluated candidates according to core ASIS values and competencies, which include management experience, knowledge of ASIS and the security profession, strategy development and visionary thinking, leadership skills, and cultural intelligence. The global board approved the new director slate on November 10th.
In addition to his decades of service to DSI, Sorrells is an author, a frequent speaker and expert industry source on security and legal topics. He wrote Security Litigation: Best Practices for Managing and Preventing Security-Related Lawsuits, published in 2015. In September, Sorrells was named a 2020 IFSEC Global Influencer, being recognized in the Commercial Security – Association Figures/Academics/Thought Leaders category. The triple-certified attorney — CPP, PSP, and PCI — started his career at DSI in 1991 as a security guard.
“An opportunity to serve in and help lead the world’s largest association for security management professionals is really special,” said Sorrells. “ASIS International does so much to promote learning, networking, standards and research in our industry, which are critical for its growth and those generations that will eventually fill our shoes.”
DSI’s dependability and continued growth stem from its DWYSYWD motto — Do What You Say You Will Do — reflecting its strong commitment to clients to promise and deliver service superiority. DSI delivers daily on its core belief in relationship building, quality assurance and partnering for success, and, as Sorrells so aptly demonstrates, the company’s efforts extend to thought and industry leadership.
