Is Your Business Going Extinct?
There was a time when mom and pop alarm companies could really make something.
Today the blind, vanilla alarm offer just isn’t enough.
On June 24, ESX will bring you the ESA Eye Opener Breakfast, featuring renowned speaker John Jennings, who will help attendees answer the critical questions affecting their businesses in his talk entitled, “Dinosaurs, Sabre Tooth Tigers, Woolly Mammoths and You?”
Will the products and services you provide today be relevant next year? How do you measure up against other business owners, and are you ready for the challenge?
Jennings will inspire the leaders in the room to go back to their businesses and make the tough decisions — the steps out of the comfort zone that are required to remain relevant in today’s landscape. It’s no longer a world where basic alarm systems can survive. Interactive services are all around us and security integrators are increasingly branching out, redefining themselves.
“Our paradigms are changing rapidly,” Jennings says.
Born in Phoenix, Ariz., Jennings brings 39 years of experience to the table. With a degree in business from the University of Arizona, he joined Safeguard Security in 1975 as an alarm installer. In 1981, Jennings became president and general manager. He is currently chief executive officer, and has been since 2001.
Jennings was president of Praying Monk Kiwanis from 1982 to 1983 and received the Distinguished President – Southwest District Award.
“I’ve been there and done that,” he said.
While he has maintained his humble tone, Jennings has proved to own the ability of making an impact. Throughout his tenure with Safeguard, yearly gross revenues have increased from $500,000 to over $36 million.
Safeguard provides residential and commercial security services and was selected as SDM Magazine’s 2002 Dealer of the Year. Serving over 26,000 clients, the company continues to develop innovative services for the residential and commercial market.
