“My goal at the end of the day is to educate, and help equip every agency with tools that are essential to us going home at the end of the day. Equipment and tools are replaceable, they are expendable, but we are not. I believe in our products, that is why I joined this team. It is not about sales, it is about providing our clients safe solutions.”
