ANSI Announces 2019 Board of Directors; Selects Industry Leaders from Private Companies, Associations
Alexandria, VA (December 17, 2018)—The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has appointed Susan Carioti, the vice president of certification, standards and guidelines at ASIS International, to a three-year term as a director-at-large on the ANSI board of directors.
As a director-at-large, Carioti will work with members of the board to determine and approve the policies and direction of ANSI’s strategic vision, and in close collaboration with stakeholders from industry and government, to identify and develop standards and conformance-based solutions to national, international and global priorities.
“The role at ANSI is quite an honor and recognizes ASIS’s commitment and grit as both an accredited standards development organization and certification body,” said Carioti. “I look forward to continuing this important work and raising the bar with ASIS members and the security community.”
Carioti joined ASIS more than a decade ago, and as an ANSI-accredited standards developer, established ASIS’s credible national standards development program. In addition to overseeing the ASIS standards program internationally by way of ISO security, risk and resilience activities, she provides strategic direction and management in advancing ASIS certification programs in conformance with ISO 17024 Personnel Certification accreditation requirements. An active participant in numerous ANSI groups for more than twenty years, Carioti currently serves on the ANSI appeals board and served many years on the ANSI executive standards council.
“Sue’s experience and expertise are a valuable addition to the ANSI Board,” said Fran Schrotter, Sr. VP & COO, ANSI. “She has demonstrated tremendous commitment and drive for excellence in ANSI standards and conformity assessment activities. We more than welcome her ideas and contributions.”
