Ryan learned the fire protection trade from his father. He began working with his dad when he was old enough to go to job sites. At a young age, Ryan was employed by a national corporation. He worked in multiple states, continued to learn, and earn certifications in the fire life safety industry. The corporate management recognized his expertise and gave him the responsibility to train staff in proper procedures for fire pump testing and maintenance for the west coast region. He quickly gained knowledge, experience, and respect within the industry. Eventually the CEO of a privately owned company recognized his value and hired him.
This CEO moved Ryan into management before the age of 30. Over the course of 7 years, Ryan grew the service and inspection department from $300,000 to $3.6 million annually by bringing on new clients and increasing revenue from existing clients. He created additional jobs by increasing staff from two to seventeen employees. This was made possible through excellent customer service, dedication, and retaining quality employees.
Ryan has over 19 years of hands-on experience in the fire life safety industry. He holds a NICET level III certification in inspection, testing, and maintenance of water-based systems along with a NICET certification in water-based systems lay out. He holds a Tennessee State Fire Specialist license for both fire suppression systems and portable fire extinguishers. He is also certified to test backflows in both Tennessee and Mississippi. Ryan started this company with three primary goals:
- Glorify God in All That He Does
- Serve Each Customer’s Needs in a Timely and Professional Manner
- Retain Quality Employees by Taking Care of Them
For Ryan, fire protection is not just a business, it’s what he loves.
