by Carlos Rivero, Jr., President & CEO, Regions Security Services, Inc.
“Over the past seven months, I have been actively networking within the CIASF (Commercial Industrial Association of South Florida) community of members.
During that timeframe, I have attended many educational seminars, special speaker series and board events. Through my contacts, I was able to forge a strong partnership with Jorge Pena from ASI Florida and the current President of CIASF.
Jorge was nice enough to put in a good referral for me to a high-end residential community in Miami-Dade County. Regions Security Services was able to offer this residential community a proactive security program which understood their work culture and security expectations. Because of my involvement in CIASF, I was able to land my company a $100,000.00 security contract in annualized revenue.
In my opinion, hard work, laying the networking seeds of foundation and staying involved when its quick to lose attention, makes all of the difference to landing a new contract or in my case a new security partnership that was right around the corner that I never knew about.”
