January 2014

Happy New Year! The 2014 new year is in full swing and I am hopeful that everyone had a wonderful holiday season and finished off 2013 in good spirits!

As your 2013 President, this will be my last official President’s Message to all of you. I wish to thank each of you for your continued support to me, my Board and most of all to the EIG of Southern California Industry Group! Without everyone’s membership dues, event involvement and consistent attendance in our monthly lunch meetings this EIGSC Industry Group would not be possible and are able sustain year after year! I also wanted to personally thank my 2013 Board of Directors: VP/Ralph Lawson (Retired); Treasurer/Angelika Carry (Smoke Guard CA); and Secretary/Jason Thibodeau (Sunstate Equipment) for their hard work and dedication that they provided throughout the year.

It is now with great enthusiasm that I introduce your newly elected 2014 EIGSC Board of Directors:

President: Ray Miller / Prysmian Group & Draka Elevator Products

Vice President: Ralph Lawson / Retired

Treasurer: Jason Thibodeau / Sunstate Equipment

Secretary: Greg Moore / Hyundai Elevator Co. & CNS Automation

Congratulations to each of you and I know that you will all do a fine job for our EIGSC Industry Group in 2014!

As the outgoing President, I am proud to introduce your incoming 2014 EIGSC President, Ray Miller of Prysmian Group/Draka Elevator Products:

Ray Miller grew up in Tampa, Florida and attended college at Florida State University where he majored in Business Management and minored in Psychology. Ray began his career in the Elevator Industry as a customer service representative for SEES (Southern Elevator & Electric Supply) in Pompano Beach, FL before becoming their West Coast Sales Manager and moving out to Los Angeles, CA.
