Check out  New York Real Estate Journal’s interview with Sean O’Neill.

Sean O’Neill, CEO of American Security Systems, sat down with the New York Real Estate Journal for a Question & Answer session.

O’Neill joined the team at American Security as CEO in 2015 after acquiring the business from its founder, Larry Dolin. Ihad positioned myself as the ‘next generation buyer,’ seeking a well-established security business with a legacy to carry forward. Since its founding in 1979, American has become one of the largest independent providers of interactive security and fire services in the tristate region.

O’Neill spent most of his career on Wall Street, investing in and growing businesses in North America before deciding to pursue his dream of owning and operating a business.  In late 2013, nearing the completion of an MBA program at INSEAD, he raised seed capital from a group of entrepreneurs to finance a search to buy the right business. After nearly two years and countless emails, letters, phone calls, and meetings, he accomplished what he set out to do.

Upon completing the acquisition of American, O’Neill relocated back to New York with his wife, Julia, of ten years and their three daughters.
