Steve Firestone, President
Throughout my career, I've been known as a leader, and an advocate for change. As the President of Select Security, I consider my role to be that of a coach, pushing the team to greater heights and achievements. I'm working to guide the company by providing a game plan, making sure we have the right athletes on the field, and that we've got the right training and practice to execute the game plan, and we know who our opponents are. I continue to encourage our team to push the envelope, setting high standards for ourselves, our organization, and maintaining the high level of customer service and satisfaction Select Security is known for.
My history with Select Security's founder, Patrick Egan, began more years ago than I wish to count. As the Chief Operating Officer at Commonwealth Security (Mr. Egan's first company) in the 1980s, I led companywide initiatives that were responsible for increasing internal efficiencies, rapidly growing sales channels, while staying focused on improving customer satisfaction levels. Following that, I held the title of Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President for the Entergy Security Corporation, which grew from zero customers to 250,000 in less that 24 months under my guidance.
I've also provided business and marketing strategies for many global brands, such as American Express, Nokia, T-Mobile, and several leading financial institutions. Additionally, I've served as the senior marketing executive at Office Depot where I developed brand strategy and marketplace positioning, alternative channel development, consumer and business customer insights and strategic vendor programs.
