Hugo Draye, datacom cabling product manager for Fluke Networks, and Bob Jensen, the firm’s standards and technology development manager, have both been awarded the 2008 Harry J. Pfister Award for Excellence in the Telecommunications Industry.
Draye and Jensen received their recognition during an awards banquet Wednesday at the BICSI Winter Conference in Orlando, Fla.
“Hugo Draye is an extremely well respected icon in the communications cabling industry,” said Frank Bisbee, founder and President of the Communication Planning Corporation and industry commentator.
“His educational presentations have helped literally thousands of BICSI members upgrade the quality of their cabling projects and value to their customers.”
Bisbee nominated Draye for the award, largely for his work with BICSI.
Jensen was selected for his work in establishing critical industry standards including the two terms he served as Chair of the TIA Cabling Standards Committee (TR-42) and the TR-42.2 Subcommittee for Residential Infrastructure.
Harry J. Pfister of General Telephone Company of Florida organized the first Building Industry Consultant Conference, which eventually became BICSI. The University of South Florida has presented the award annually since 1982.
