NILES, IL, June 24, 2010 — Shure Incorporated announced that 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 to an industry leader who has proven to be a dedicated and sincere champion for the electronics and communications markets.
“I’m very honored to have been given this award,” Mrs. Shure said. “Really, it doesn’t belong to me; it should go to my husband [S. N. Shure], who founded and built this Company. I am pleased to accept this in his memory.”
Mrs. Shure’s career at Shure Incorporated began more than 60 years ago. She helped Shure grow from a small microphone and phonograph cartridges Company to the leading global audio electronics manufacturer with the strong and diversified product line it is today. Shure products are now used and publicly endorsed by prominent musicians, public speakers, sound contractors, and audio engineers around the world.
“Over the years, Mrs. Shure’s private life, her philanthropic activities, and her professional life were one,” said 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.”
Business integrity, respect, and fair treatment for all continue to be her motivators, according to LaMantia.
“High among her goals is to provide an environment for creativity, pride in making products of the highest quality, and reaching one’s own potential,” he said. “After all, the best Associates develop, manufacture, market, and sell the best products.”
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," said 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."
