About ESA’s Weinstock Person of the Year Award 

Morris F. Weinstock was a pioneer in our industry, founding Morse Signal Devices in 1934 alongside his brother Jack in Cleveland before expanding operations to California. Recognizing the need for industry collaboration, he joined forces with Ben Call of Call’s Police Signal Corp. to establish the National Burglar & Fire Alarm Association (NBFAA) in 1948, now known as the Electronic Security Association (ESA). Since then, the Morris F. Weinstock Award has annually honored individuals who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and innovation in advancing the security industry. This prestigious accolade celebrates the trailblazers who have made significant contributions to our field since its inception in 1970. 


Each year, we pay tribute to Morris F. Weinstock, a visionary whose legacy underscores the importance of dedication, innovation, and purpose.” Says George De Marco, ESX Chairman. “True excellence extends beyond awards; it is found in the unwavering commitment to serve the industry and others selflessly. In our celebration at ESX, we will honor not merely an individual, but a legacy that ignites our collective drive to soar to greater heights.” 


Live Musical Performance by Aaron Bucks 

ESX is also pleased to announce that Aaron Bucks will be performing at the ESX Weinstock Celebration.
