Inside Post Alarm’s Future-Forward Focus
Post Alarm’s third-generation leaders discuss the company’s longevity, maneuvers into markets like DIY and the smart home, and much more in the latest Security Speaking podcast.
Arcadia, Calif.-based Post Alarm has come a long way since it was founded in 1956 by ex-police chief Sam Post. Now run by his grandkids, Rob and Gina Post (who took over for their dad, Bill), Post Alarm provides residential and commercial offerings, in-house systems monitoring and armed patrol services.
The company has grown to nearly $12 million in annual revenues, with close to 140 employees serving more than 16,000 monitored customers throughout Southern California (except San Diego County).
Rob serves as the company’s president with Gina being general manager. Her husband, Anthony Franco, came aboard in 2005 and is currently Post’s vice president of technology. SSI Editor-in-Chief Scott Goldfine recently spoke with the execs to uncover what’s behind the business’ longevity, as well as learn about its forward-thinking maneuvers into markets like DIY and the smart home, building enterprise value by attaching RMR to all accounts, and innovation via custom-branded high-tech offerings.
