WOMEN IN SECURITY FEATURE: BRIGITTE F. DANIEL, WILCO ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS
YARMOUTH, Maine—As part of Security Systems News’ and the Security Industry Association (SIA) Women in Security Forum’s (WISF’s) partnership to highlight the contributions of women in security, this month’s feature is on Brigitte F. Daniel, Esq., executive vice president, Wilco Electronic Systems, Inc., which has been dedicated to providing cable television, telecom, broadband and technology services to underserved communities and various class levels of multifamily housing developments for more than 40 years.
“After the acquisition of Wilco’s cable division by Comcast in 2017, we pivoted the company’s focus and began to head forward back to our roots, the integration of security access and technology systems,” Daniel told SSN. “However, now armed with leadership of 2nd generation family and fueled with new cloud-based technology platforms, we have become a modern and unique integrator sitting at the epicenter between the convergence of real estate, technology and impact.”
The most recent “sustained inspiration,” she noted, has been growing over the last five years. “We started to see that the home was becoming a tech hub and representing so much more than just housing, particularly through the integration and augmentation of smart technology,” she explained. “Housing meant health, housing meant smart energy, housing meant new opportunities for empowering families, communities and cities.”
