At the National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE) convention, NATE Unite, Therese O’Brien received the membership organization’s Chairman’s Coin recognizing her contributions to the wireless industry and NATE. O’Brien, a national account executive with Tessco Technologies, received the award at a luncheon on Feb. 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 senior vice president of commercial sales, product marketing and 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.”
Former NATE Chairman Jim Tracy, who presented the award to O’Brien, said: “Therese is always there, always working, never stopping. 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 served on the NATE Trade Show Committee for 13 years and serves on the NATE Member Services Committee, along with her role as the Atlantic Coast regional ambassador for the NATE Wireless Industry Network and as a member of Women of NATE.
