How I can help you
I can help you with Marketing, Sales, Service Delivery, and General Management issues.
My career in the Construction and Service industry began when I started a business providing security systems to homes and businesses. I sold systems by day and installed at night and on weekends. Over the course of 8 years the business grew to about 30 employees, and I sold it. That was my first experience selling a business and led to buying / selling others.
Honeywell, Inc. was entering the security business nationally and approached me to establish their Michigan base of operations. Later, I established a Division for Siemens dedicated to the commercial fire alarm service field. Most recently, I retired from Securitas, the largest protective service company in the world. There I was able to help develop a new U.S. Division dedicated to access control, cctv, intrusion, and monitoring.
These experiences have allowed me to develop a number of skills necessary to succeed as an entrepreneur. I have been a Technician, Salesman, Service Manager, Portfolio Manager, Business Owner, General Manager, and Region Director.
Over the past 40+ years I gained a tremendous respect for those who have a dream and the tenacity to pursue it. Hopefully you can benefit from my past lessons learned and we can move forward together.
