Chad Callaghan Named as Safety and Security Consultant for the AH&LA


Washington, November 2, 2011 — Chad Callaghan, CPP, CSC, CLSD, has been retained as a safety and security consultant for the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA). 
 
Callaghan, who spent 35 years with Marriott International, is the principal for Premises Liability Consultants, a sole proprietorship that provides consulting services and litigation support to commercial facilities and law firms.  At Marriott, he served as vice president, Global Safety & Security – Americas, with responsibility for the safety and security for all Marriott businesses and brands in the U.S., Latin America, and the Caribbean. 
 
“Chad will provide an immense benefit for AH&LA members, in particular those members with no safety and security expertise or resources,” said AH&LA President/CEO Joe McInerney.  “As a long-time and active member of the hospitality security community, we’re thrilled to have someone of Chad’s caliber on board,”
 
Callaghan has served as chair of the Lodging Sector for the Department of Homeland Security Commercial Facilities Coordinating Council, co-chair of the ASIS Guidelines and Standards Commission, chair of the AH&LA Loss Prevention Committee, and chaired the Security Planning Councils for the Atlanta and Salt Lake Olympic Games. 
 
He currently serves on the board of directors for ASIS International and is a member of the Council on Litigation Management and the CSO Roundtable. He was recently named to the Henley-Putnam University Strategic Security & Protection Management Program’s advisory board.
 
Callaghan has been a Certified Protection Professional (CPP) since 1984, a Certified Lodging Security Director (CLSD) since 1999, and attained the Certified Security Consultant (CSC) designation in 2006. 
 
In 2001, Callaghan received the Raymond C. Ellis Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Hospitality Industry and, in 2002, received the Presidential Award of Merit, both from ASIS International.  In 2007, he was recognized as one of the “Top 25 Most Influential People in the Security Industry” by Security Magazine.  In 2008, Callaghan was awarded the “Lifetime Achievement Award” from Hospitality Lawyer.com.
