He brings more than 30 years of corporate security management to this position. Currently, Consalvo is the manager of corporate security for the State Farm Insurance Companies. In that role, he provides executive leadership and directs the security program for the State Farm Enterprise, which includes security operations in multiple locations throughout the United States. Consalvo brings no “pet projects” to the table, believing that being the president of ASIS or any organization is about “what we accomplish as a group of leaders for our Society and our profession,” but he does have priorities. Chief among these are the development and promulgation of guidelines for the security industry, as well as implementing business management concepts and implications into all the Society’s educational programs. The latter dovetails with ASIS’ efforts to create educational programs for high-level security executives, such as a recently launched initiative with the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. “It’s a fantastic program,” Consalvo stresses. “An MBA-caliber program and a major accomplishment for ASIS.” Mr. Consalvo graduated with a bachelor’s degree in industrial and occupational safety with an emphasis in disaster planning, and a minor in business administration. He is board certified in security management as a Certified Protection Professional (CPP), a designation acknowledged throughout the world as the highest recognition accorded a security practitioner. Mr. Consalvo, his wife, Susan, and their daughter live in Bloomington, Ill.
