The Loss Prevention Foundation (LPF) has added to new members to the Loss Prevention Foundation Advisory Council (LPFAC): Hedgie Bartol, LPC, senior director of retail business development at Auror, and Jonathon Burris, LPC, senior regional asset protection specialist at Whole Foods.
“I am honored and humbled to be chosen to serve on the LPF Advisory Council,” Bartol said. “Having been a supporter of the LPF since its inception, I am looking forward to being a part of its continued growth and the professional development of LP professionals. The work the LPF has done in bringing our industry together and finding ways to provide greater value to retailers and solution providers alike has been a critical component in making a difference in our stores and communities.”
Burris added, “I’m very excited to be joining the LPF Advisory Council and its wealth of talented and passionate professionals. During my 20-plus-year career, my vision has always been to be an advocate for the loss prevention industry and I look forward to continuing that vision with the LPFAC.”
Created in 2018, the purpose of the LPFAC is to advise, assist, and support the LPF Board, as well as advocate for the loss prevention industry. Members of the Advisory Council offer recommendations for new topics and improvement of the current LPF certification curriculums and serve as liaisons between the LPF and retailers and solution providers. The Advisory Council also makes recommendations to the LPF Board of Directors on topics including, but not limited to, diversity, membership, scholarships, and LPF special projects.
“We’re excited that Hedgie and Jonathon have agreed to join the LPF Advisory Council,” said Terry Sullivan, LPC, president of the LPF. “We know they will be an asset to this dedicated group of LP professionals who work tirelessly to help us make the LPF the outstanding organization that it is.”
