Shure Chairman Presented with NSCA Lifetime Acheivement Award
Shure Inc. chairman, Rose L. Shure, has been honored with the 2010 Per Haugen Lifetime Achievement Award from the NSCA (National Systems Contractors Association). The award was presented earlier this month at the InfoComm trade show in Las Vegas.
“I’m very honored to have been given this award,” Mrs. Shure says. “Really, it doesn’t belong to me; it should go to my husband [Sidney N. Shure], who founded and built this Company. I am pleased to accept this in his memory.”
Mrs. Shure’s career at Shure began more than 60 years ago. She helped Shure grow from a small microphone and phonograph cartridges Company to a leading global audio electronics manufacturer with the diversified product line it is today.
“Over the years, Mrs. Shure’s private life, her philanthropic activities, and her professional life were one,” says Shure President and CEO Sandy LaMantia. “She is devoted to our Company and to our Associates. Her ongoing support and leadership demonstrate what it is to serve faithfully and with humility, intelligence, and compassion.”
Shure has been actively involved with the NSCA, the leading not-for-profit association representing the commercial electronic systems industry, for more than 20 years.
“It is an honor to award Mrs. Shure with the 2010 NSCA Per Haugen Lifetime Achievement Award,” says Chuck Wilson, NSCA Executive Director. “The commitment Mrs. Shure and the late Mr. Shure made to the Company’s high expectations are exemplified through the professionalism of Shure employees and products. She sets an amazing example of what future leaders in our industry should strive for. Under her leadership, Shure has become a premier manufacturer in the industry and an outstanding advocate for wireless microphone users.”
