WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Security 101, a systems integration franchise company, announces the appointment of security industry veteran Carl Stark to serve as president of the global accounts team. The team provides integrated security solutions for enterprise organizations with multisite facilities throughout the United States and in 14 other countries.
Stark has been with Security 101 as a national accounts sales executive for the past two years. He previously served as business development manager for Tampa-based Convergint Technologies. In 2006 Stark started Qualified Systems Contracting in Florida, which he grew into a multi-location organization with more than 40 employees before selling it to a national security integrator.
Stark formerly served 10 years as senior sales advisor for Fort Lauderdale-based Security One Systems. He began his career as an electronic technician specializing in security systems for the U.S. Navy.
“With his more than two decades of proven leadership within the security industry, Carl is prepared to take our Global Accounts team to the next level,” Security 101 CEO Steve Crespo. “Through his career, Carl has held virtually every position you can with a security integrator, giving him an incredible understanding of client needs and technology solutions.”
In the announcement, Stark says he will continue to grow the business around core values of “fanatical” customer service, while “maintaining our integrity, and having fun when we can.”
“I also want to create a positive environment that affords opportunities for every employee to advance and provide support, where needed, for our 40+ locally owned Security 101 offices across the country,” he continues.
Security 101 was established in 2003 with a goal of having 101 franchise locations. At the beginning of the year, Security 101 earned a spot in Entrepreneur magazine’s latest Franchise 500, a comprehensive franchise ranking published each year.
Placement in the Franchise 500 is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry, according to Security 101. The magazine received more than 1,000 applications for the 39th annual listing, making it one of the company’s most competitive rankings ever.
