Tyco Integrated Security Exec Named to Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain List

Don Hsieh Recognized as an Individual Shaping Safety and Driving Innovation in the Global Food Supply Chain

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - Mar 27, 2015) - Tyco Integrated Security, the leading security systems integrator, announced today that Food Logistics granted Don Hsieh, director of commercial and industrial marketing, the Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain award.

The inaugural award was developed as a way to recognize influential individuals in the food and beverage industry whose achievements, hard work and vision help to attain milestones in safety, efficiency, productivity and innovation throughout the global food supply chain. Hsieh, who brings more than 30 years of technology experience to his role at TycoIS, was recognized for the award due to his advocacy for and devotion to food defense.

Each year, one in six consumers get sick from contaminated food and 128,000 people are hospitalized. Hsieh hopes that his dedication to educating businesses on supply chain best practices will help to mitigate these food contamination risks.

"I'm honored to be recognized for this award for the work I'm doing at TycoIS to educate food manufacturers and distributors on ways to mitigate risks to the food supply chain," Hsieh said. "The food supply chain is particularly vulnerable due to its global nature and businesses that don't have the proper protocols in place to protect it are putting millions of consumers at risk. This recognition from Food Logistics affirms the success and momentum of our efforts in the industry."

TycoIS has a long history of providing security solutions to all levels of food manufacturers and distributors. Its industry-leading solutions for food and beverage organizations include intrusion detection, access control, video surveillance, fire and life safety, loss prevention, critical condition monitoring, emergency response planning and more.

"From early pioneers and entrepreneurs to non-conformist thinkers and executive standouts, this award aims to honor these leaders and their contributions to our industry," notes Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief at Food Logistics. "Moreover, leadership, innovation and influence reveals itself in numerous ways and not only at the executive level. This new award is our way of celebrating the talented trailblazers and inspirational mentors whose work deserves acknowledgement and appreciation."

Individuals who earned a place within the "Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain" award will be profiled in the March 2015 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
