Frank Bell, Vice President of Business Development,
American Security

At American Security, we know our people are our most valuable asset. Each month, we recognize a member of our team for their outstanding contributions to our organization with our American Security Employee Spotlight.

This month, we celebrate Frank Bell.

Frank joined the team at American Security two years ago when a friend suggested he contact our CEO, Sean O’Neill. The pair hit it off and after speaking for two hours and Frank being captivated by Sean’s vision for the company, Frank knew he needed to work for American Security.

As Vice President of Business Development, Frank is in charge of cultivating business with existing clients along with developing new business.

His favorite part about working at American Security is being involved in helping people protect what they have and feel more secure. Additionally, Frank is a born lover of architecture. He says is fortunate to be able to see some truly extraordinary buildings throughout the city that were built years ago as well as some of the more extravagant buildings being built today.

“[There is] something about seeing and being part of something built from the ground-up, probably because I can swing a hammer – I just rarely hit anything.“

Frank is proud of the value American Security provides to property owners. They don’t have to worry “What if…?” They can do what they’re supposed to do and manage their building, Frank says, while American Security does what they’re supposed to do. If they do it right, which Frank knows they will, they’ll get to do it all over again with them at the next location.

 “We provide an interactive security solution, a communication solution, future forward technology along with a marketable amenity.  What differentiates us from other construction trades is that we are there at the building for years to come. At the end of the day, if we do what we are supposed to do, we get to do it all over again with them at the next location.“

Outside of work, Frank, his wife and their daughter enjoy traveling and experiencing new things. Though he loves the island of Manhattan, they all really love the Big Island of Hawaii most of all.

Aloha!

American Security Systems | Employee Highlight | Brian Brynolfson

Brian Brynolfson, Tech Manager,
American Security

 

At American Security, we know our people are our most valuable asset. Each month, we recognize a member of our team for their outstanding contributions to our organization with our American Security Employee Spotlight.

This month, we celebrate Brian Brynolfson.

Brian originally joined the team at American Security in 2012 after years of working in low voltage electric, security cameras and burglar alarms. He enjoyed his earlier work in the security industry but the challenge of fire drew him in, especially with the rules and regulations of New York City. When the opportunity to move to New York and work with American Security came up, he grabbed it!

Brian began his work at American Security as Field Supervisor for the fire division and is currently Tech Manager. Now, he works outside of the fields, manages employees from the job sites, and gets sites ready for inspection.

Coming to American Security, Brian says he has experienced a tremendous amount of growth. His favorite part about working at American Security is the immense opportunity to learn and grow at every corner.

“As far as you want to take yourself, you can do it.“

Brian Brynolfson, Tech Manager,
American Security

He would like to thank Mike Carter for training him when he first started out at the company.

A small tip for property owners? Brian says you need to stay in compliance – there’s no cutting corners when it comes to life safety! Spend the extra time and resources to ensure you have a proper alarm system in place.

If you’re trying to get into the profession yourself, Brian says it’s a good move.

 

“There’s no ceiling – you can keep going and studying and pushing yourself. Push yourself! This is a fast growing business that is only getting bigger – especially in New York.”
