The Loss Prevention Foundation (LPF) announced this week the creation of the Loss Prevention Foundation Advisory Council (LPFAC). This council was created to support the LPF and will be taking over the responsibilities of various LPF committees that have been dissolved.
“In the past, the LPF has had separate committees for all aspects of the Foundation,” said Terry Sullivan, LPC, president of the LPF. “After much discussion, the LPF board of directors decided it was time to take the LPF committees in a different direction. Thus, the creation of the Advisory Council.”
The purpose of the LPFAC will be to advise, assist and support the LPF Board, as well as, advocate for the loss prevention industry. Members of the Advisory Council will offer recommendations for new topics and improvement of the current LPF certification curriculums and will serve as liaisons between the LPF and retailers and solution providers. The Advisory Council will also make recommendations to the LPF Board of Directors on topics including, but not limited to, diversity, membership, scholarships and LPF special projects.
The Loss Prevention Foundation is proud to announce the following council members. All members will be volunteers and must be either LPQ or LPC certified. Currently, the Advisory Council members are:
- Chair – Cathy Langley, LPC, Senior Director, Loss Prevention – Rite Aid
- Vice Chair – Tyson Robertson, LPC, Regional Loss Prevention Manager, LP and Security – Amazon
- Melissa Wacha, LPQ, Director Asset Protection – Walmart
- Denise Wynn, LPC, Assistant Vice President Director of National Investigations – TJX
- Cita Doyle, LPQ, Director of Sales & Marketing – Instakey
- Kris Vece, LPQ, Vice President of Client Relations – Protos
- Todd Isenhour, LPC, Director Human Resources Field Operations – North Division – Lowes
- Mat Schriner, LPC, Director of Operations – LPF
“We could not ask for a better group of dedicated, professional loss prevention and solution provider executives to launch the LPFAC. Not only are all the council members LPQ or LPC certified, they have a passion for education and seeing certification succeed in our industry,” said Sullivan. “We know that this group of industry professionals are going to be an enormous asset to the LPF with their vast array of expert knowledge in the loss prevention industry.”
