Pacheco, CA. April 6, 2016 – Two of Bay Alarm’s leading executives have been inducted into the Security Sales & Integration (SSI) Industry Hall of Fame. Bay Alarm CEO Roger Westphal and retired President and Chairman Bruce Westphal received the prestigious honor, which recognizes individuals who have contributed to advancements in the security industry through remarkable achievement and professionalism.
Roger and Bruce Westphal have each contributed more than 50 years to growing and managing Bay Alarm Co., which, as the largest independent security and burglar alarm company in the U.S, has provided security systems to California residents and businesses for over 70 years serving more than 130,000 customers. The brothers are well respected throughout the North American security community for their leadership in the industry, as well as for their focus on integrity and service.
From their dedication to early alarm system software programs in the ‘70s to their adoption of a recurring revenue model that has aided in the growth of the business, Bruce and Roger’s achievements form the bedrock of the company’s success. “More than 20 years ago, we established an advisory board made up of business leaders outside our industry,” Roger told SSI. “It has functioned as a board of directors and has provided forward-thinking advice and direction.”
“We have a management style that allows co-workers to lead and prosper while having full confidence they are in charge of both their responsibilities and their future,” Bruce added, citing another reason for the company’s prosperity.
Bay Alarm was founded by Roger and Bruce’s father, Everett Westphal, in 1946. Today, their sons serve as co-presidents and executive vice president, continuing the Bay Alarm family legacy.
