The Door + Hardware Institute announced that Cortney Anderson Wascher has been elected 2023-2024 President of DHI’s 12-member Board of Governors. Breaking barriers in a male-dominated industry, Wascher won a 2017 DHI Award of Merit, for outstanding contributions to the advancement of the architectural openings industry. The award letter acknowledged the company’s family heritage, its growth, and the fact that it still employs several of its original employees. “Following in your father’s footsteps to treat employees as family, you have built a successful company with core values that are in line with what it means to be a door + hardware professional. It is because of these values you have bestowed that your employees ‘hold [their] heads high with confidence and pride.’”

Cortney has also served on the State of Illinois Private Detective, Private Alarm, Private Security, Fingerprint Vendor, and Locksmith Board within the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. She represented locksmiths and the door security industry on this critical advisory board from 2009 until 2021.
