“Awarded To: Andrew Seybold, For your outstanding vision, commitment and contributions to the critical communications industry”
I am deeply humbled to have been only the second person to receive this lifetime achievement award, especially since Chief Harlin McEwen (Ret.) was the first and there could be no one better to follow.
Since the day I was invited to join the group seeking spectrum from Washington DC for a nationwide public safety broadband network, FirstNet has become my life’s work and Band 14 has been its greatest reward.
I am thankful to IWCE’s dedicated staff, the Public Safety Broadband Technology Association (PSBTA), and Dick Mirgon, a founding member of the Public Safety Alliance who has long served the wireless communications industry, for moderating the panel during which this award was presented.
Unfortunately, I was not able to be there, but I listened and was honored by the number of people who chose to attend this session. I thank everyone who has supported me over the years and I look forward to continuing with my life’s work of improving and expanding wireless communications for public safety.
