ADT CEO Naren Gursahaney, Chairman Bruce Gordon, and Chief Financial Officer Kathryn Mikells will be joined on the New York Stock Exchange podium by longtime customers Tom and Kathi Guarino of Glen Head, N.Y., whose ADT home security system helped to save their lives. They will be accompanied by members of the Nassau County, N.Y. emergency medical services and fire and police departments, including Tom McGillicuddy, chief of the Glenwood Volunteer Fire Department and Wally Zeins, Glenwood EMT. McGillicuddy and Zeins are representing the volunteer firefighters that were dispatched to the Guarino’s home after dangerous levels of carbon monoxide were detected.
ADT employees will also help celebrate this important milestone in the company’s nearly 140-year history. “I am pleased to stand among my colleagues and these remarkable individuals to celebrate this important day for ADT,” said Gursahaney. “They represent the core of what we do — we help save lives.”
Joining her colleagues on the podium will be Brea Juntenen, an emergency dispatch operator from Rochester, N.Y. Juntenen, a fire victim herself, was chosen by ADT leaders to represent the company at the New York Stock Exchange after learning through a company-wide essay contest how she applies that experience to her work every day.
