Tessco’s Therese O’Brien was honored with the Chairman’s Coin recognizing her contributions to the wireless industry and the National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE) at the organization’s annual event, NATE Unite, in Grapevine, Texas.
O’Brien was presented with the Chairman’s Coin at an awards luncheon on February 6. Each year, the Chairman of the NATE Board of Directors selects “individuals who have shown excellent dedication and service to the mission of NATE and to encourage continued involvement.”
“We are extremely pleased to see Therese recognized by NATE for her tireless work on behalf the organization and the industry,” said Charles Kriete, Tessco Sr. VP of Commercial Sales, Product Marketing & Supply Chain. “It’s a testament to her dedication beyond Tessco, to the wireless industry as a whole, and we couldn’t be prouder to have her as a part of the Tessco team.”
“Therese is always there, always working, never stopping,” said former NATE Chairman Jim Tracy, who presented the award. “She is a wonderful Tessco example of service above self.”
O’Brien’s involvement with NATE spans the organization’s entire history, as she attended the first ever NATE Conference and Expo. She has previously served on the NATE Trade Show Committee for 13 years and currently serves on the NATE Member Services Committee, along with her role as the Atlantic Coast Regional Ambassador for NATE WIN and a member of the Women of NATE.
