“I’m excited and humbled to be elected as Vice President to the Safer Buildings Coalition Board of Directors,” said Lau, who serves as Comba Telecom’s Vice President of Strategic Development. “I look forward to continuing SBC’s commitment to education, awareness and continuous improvement of in-building public safety communications for first responders.”
