Eva was highlighted in this annual program showcasing 100 women who are role models, leaders, innovators and influencers in the global security industry.
SILVER SPRING, Md. – The Security Industry Association (SIA) has named Eva Mach, President, CEO and Employee Owner of Pro-Tec Design to the 2023 honoree list for the SIA Women in Security Forum Power 100. This initiative, presented by the SIA Women in Security Forum, honors 100 women in the security industry each year who are role models for actively advancing diversity, inclusion, innovation and leadership in the community.
Eva brought her 20 years of industry experience to Pro-Tec in 2010. Beginning as the company’s CFO, she assumed the role of President and CEO in 2016. A champion of creating a high-level, focused vision, promoting a dynamic culture and staying ahead of industry and market changes, Eva is leading the company into its next phase. As the security industry rapidly transforms from physical to virtual, Eva is responsible for guiding the short and long-term strategic planning. Under her guidance, she has assembled a strong leadership and operations team that focuses on protecting their clients’ business and security needs with the latest industry technology.
Since her arrival, she has taken the company from privately held to employee-owned through an ESOP, instituting a major cultural pivot transitioning employees to operate as owners. To drive the cultural and growth shifts associated with employee ownership, she implemented EOS Traction to build management team capacity and promote accountability throughout the organization.
Eva serves as the ultimate decision making and point person on strategic initiatives including products, services and maintaining strategic relationships with Pro-Tec’s key vendors and partners.
Acting as a true open-door CEO, Eva leads the daily charge manifesting Pro-Tec’s vision of Making Our World Safer.
