Terry Rivet: The one most important thing is that you will enjoy working with our people. They understand and take pride in the fact that we're going to take care of the security industry in that facility and they are proud of it.
Bill Bozeman: Tell us about Pro'Tec's mission, vision and values, and how do they impact your day-to-day activities?
Tim Ferrian: For me specifically as the director of Sales and Marketing we're looking to add to our group all of the time. I tend to look for people that are on the leading edge of technology, it tends to be a little bit of a younger crowd because I've noticed that the landscape of our end users customers is also changing with the introduction of IT technology and how the decisions are being changed from what use to be the security directors making these decisions to more of the IT group. We're finding that we're having more success when the sales group is a little bit younger and is communicating to those younger IT people. The best thing about Pro-Tec stems from our mission, vision and values. Especially our values, which are really just great rules or characteristics that I think everybody should live by, be it your work life or personal life. We talk about those things openly during the recruiting process and let them know that because of those values this is really a place where good people are allowed and encouraged to do good things and build a career, a career that could be 20 and 30 years long.
Bill Bozeman: What is one thing you'd like to say about Pro-Tec design?
Tom Hagen: My message would be this, "A good system architecture provides a roadmap for the portion of the road yet to be built." We think that is really important. We think that anything we design or propose for a customer should have a long view in mind. Anything that we do that adds on to an existing system, we should do it in a way that would maximize the investment they've already made and be a stepping stone towards the end result that they want to get to.
