Peter J. O'Neil has been chosen as the new executive vice-president and CEO of ASIS International, replacing Michael Stack, who retired at the end of 2015 following a 22-year tenure as the organization's CEO.

“Peter is definitely the leader we need at this point in time to take our organization forward,” said ASIS president Dave Tyson. “It is a critical time for our association and our industry-at-large as unique threat scenarios continue to arise globally driven by world events and advances in technology.”

O’Neil was previously the CEO of the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), an international professional society representing 10,000 occupational and environmental health and safety professionals.

“ASIS is an outstanding organization with a solid, rich history of achievement and exceptional resources,” observed O’Neil. “I am honored to have this opportunity to lead a talented staff of professionals and to collaborate with a vibrant global network of volunteer leaders and members to advance and grow the association in the months and years ahead.”

He is an author and frequently presents, facilitates and speaks at various conferences.
