Three New Officers Join Home Safety Council's Board
The Home Safety Council has added new officers to its board of directors: Chief Dennis Compton, who will chair the board; Marshall A. Croom, vice chair; and Walter W. Becky II, secretary-treasurer. They will serve two-year terms.
Compton is with the International Fire Service Training Association and Fire Protection Publications at Oklahoma State University; he previously chaired the Congressional Fire Services Institute's National Advisory Committee and the International Fire Service Training Association's Executive Board. Croom, CPA, is senior vice president of Merchandising and Store Operations Support at Lowe's Companies, Inc. and previously worked for more than a decade at Ernst & Young. Becky is president of Morton Salt, where he has worked since 1974. In 1999, when Rohm and Haas purchased Morton Salt, he was elected vice president of the Leadership Council.
"This diverse team brings valuable experience, injury-prevention knowledge, business acumen, and leadership skills to HSC's board," Home Safety Council President Meri-K Appy said July 12. "We welcome the opportunity to advance our mission with the benefit of their wise counsel and oversight." Visit www.homesafetycouncil.org for information. "My association with the Home Safety Council continues to be one of the most rewarding affiliations of my career," said Compton. "It's an honor to have been elected chair of this exceptional organization, and I look forward to working with the outstanding staff and board members as we continue to advance the Home Safety Council's critical life safety mission."
