Cabling Icon has announced that Dan Dosch is the winner of the 2012 Cabling Icon contest, and will receive the $6,000 cash prize, the event's Golden Punch Down award, an embroidered Cabling Icon leather vest, bragging rights, and an all-expenses paid trip to Disneyworld. The award was given at the BICSI 2012 Winter Conference & Exhibition by Dennis Mazaris, Cabling Icon creator and judge, Dan Morris, the chair of the BICSI Installation Committee, and David Richards, the chair of the BICSI Cabling Skills Challenge.
As the 2012 Cabling Icon, Dan goes on to compete in the 2012 BICSI Cabling Skills Challenge with a grand prize of $5,000 and the bragging rights as 2012 BICSI Installer of the year.
"Dan has taken the initiative to earn professional accreditations and designations from recognized and respected organizations, indicating he has a long-term view of his future and has the knowledge necessary to make career out of cabling-infrastructure installation. His video portfolio showcases his hands-on ability," commented Patrick McLaughlin, chief editor of Cabling Installation & Maintenance magazine and judge of the Cabling Icon contest.
In his Cabling Icon videos throughout the multiple rounds, Dan emphasized the importance of safety on the job, as he demonstrated various techniques that can only be learned from years of experience in the low voltage cabling industry. Dan proved to the voters and audience of the 2012 Cabling Icon contest that he takes pride in his work, going above and beyond with his detail-oriented video editing--something Betsy Conroy, industry writer and Cabling Icon judge, pointed out in her comments from his Round 1 video.
"Dan put a lot of time and effort into his videos to make sure they reflect a typical day-to-day scenario, giving his videos the quality of a training video and earning Dan an edge in the contest. You can tell that Dan is passionate about his career," commented Dennis Mazaris, president of Concert Technologies and creator/judge of Cabling Icon.
Pictures of the presentation of the check and award are posted at the Cabling Icon website. The BICSI 2012 Winter Conference & Exhibition is being held February 12-16 at the Disney Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, FL.
