BICSI Installer of the Year Wins for Second Time

May 28, 2009

For the second year in a row, Jessie Spearman of Vision Technologies (Glen Burnie, MD) was named winner of BICSI's Installer Of the Year competition held at the association's spring conference in Baltimore. 

"I couldn't believe that I won again," says Spearman. "But win or lose, being here is a great experience. Before the competition, I thought BICSI was just a training organization, but through these conferences I've learned BICSI is more about career development and helping people grow. Since the last competition, I was promoted from foreman to supervisor, and now I oversee Vision Technology's Virginia office operations."
