The first Niagara Community award winners include: John Leslie, MGM International Resorts; James Johnson, VYKON; Paul Quinn, Duke Realty; Dan Drury, HVAC Concepts; Noel Courtney, Airmaster; Terry Swope, Lynxspring; Dr. Gert-Ulrich Vack, Sysmik; Rodrigo Garcia, R&R Controls; and Paul Oswald, ESI.

In presenting the awards, Marc Petock, vice president, global marketing and communications for Tridium, congratulated the winners and thanked them for their outstanding contribution to the Niagara community. β€œA community is important and cannot be created by one individual,” Petock said. β€œIt takes many to develop, nurture, and grow a thriving community. Nowhere is this more evident than within the Niagara Community. We are delighted to recognize this group of individuals who constantly get involved and stay involved.”
