By Ron Lovett, EO Atlantic Canada member and Source Security founder
I founded Source Security in 2002. My goal was to manage the physical security needs for concerts, commercial businesses and festivals in and around Halifax, Nova Scotia. I recently sold Source to the largest security company in North America.
After 15 years in business, Source had become one of the nation’s leading suppliers of corporate event and executive security services, employing a staff of 1,500 full-time and part-time employees. But getting there wasn’t easy. (In fact, most business people in my inner circle said that it couldn’t be done.) Here’s how I rebuilt my company and got back on track for success.
