In 2001, I started ISSi with my vision of creating a nationwide turn-key ATM implementation company with the primary goal of assembling the best project management teams and field technicians in the financial industry. In doing so, it was my top priority to always lead the field in continuous pursuit of greater quality and execution excellence.
As a brief background, I was in the U.S. Navy from 1981 to 1987 where I studied advanced electronics and earned the rank of Electronics Technician First Class (ET1). I was stationed on the USS George Phillip FFG-12 in San Diego, CA. At a young age while serving, I was put in charge of the Combat Systems Division and was responsible for overseeing all the ships electronics, data systems and interior communications technicians who specifically maintained the ships entire onboard communications equipment. In turn, the electronics technicians were responsible for the ships radio and satellite communications equipment, radar and navigation gear – as well as the data systems technicians who were tasked with maintaining the ships computer network and data systems.
During my Naval career, I seized the opportunity at hand and made the most of it by working diligently to become a highly decorated sailor for my performance excellence. To be specific, I earned qualifications and awards such as the Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist (ESWS), Officer of the Deck underway (OOD), and multiple Sailor of the Quarter and Sailor of the Year nominations. The highlights of my Naval career consisted of a Western Pacific cruise (Westpac) to the Persian Gulf and having the honor and privilege of being selected to represent my command in a meeting with the Chief of Naval Operations.
Having said that, my time served in the Navy allowed me to earn great respect for all of those who are actively serving or who have served our country across all branches of our military. In addition, the life experiences I gained during this time have served me well throughout my life. I firmly believe that In order to be a strong leader you must first understand the importance of being a strong team member. The foundation of this belief I carry starts with personal accountability, responsibility and self-motivation – in which I was able to translate from military to civilian life as I entered my career supporting the financial industry. Throughout my career, I have applied this work ethic and was able to rise up the ranks from Field Service Technician, Project Manager, Installations Director, National Sales Manager and eventually to ATM Division Vice President before creating ISSi.
So bringing things full circle, our team at ISSi has successfully supported our partners efforts with national ATM implementation programs, national general construction services, signage conversions, ATM hardware and software rollouts for over a decade since 2001. The licenses held by ISSi that enable these services to be offered are General Contractor, Alarm Company Operator, Certified Locksmith and Business Licenses in every state in which we operate nationwide. In addition, ISSi is also a Certified Veteran Business Enterprise (VBE) and Small Business Enterprise (SBE) – which assists our partners to comply with and accomplish their minority spending goals. Lastly, when our partners engage ISSi, I personally dedicate my time and work closely with our project teams to custom tailor our support services to mirror our partner’s needs and exceed their expectations. Our Dedicated ISSi team provides the highest quality service to ensure success! It would be an honor to serve you and your company. With ISSi on the team, we all win together!
