STOCK WATCH Prices quoted are from the close of business on February 4, 2011 akota Security, a South Dakota-based systems integrator, recently hired Brad Miller as its regional VP for its Arizona regional office. Miller most recently worked for Red Hawk, a UTC Fire & Security company, as general manager for Arizona. He has 15 years’ experience in the security industry. Security Systems News caught up with Brad in January and asked him five questions. COMPANY (ticker) AlarmForce Ind. (AF.TO) Brad Miller You have spent a lot of time in Arizona. Are you an Arizona native? I am not. I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I came out here to go to college … and (after graduating) actually moved back to Milwaukee for a year and it was so cold I literally couldn’t take it anymore (and moved back to Arizona). What do you like about your adopted state? The proximity to Sedona, Flagstaff, the Grand Canyon, places you can go to in the winter and find snow, if you want to, places you can go in the summertime and have a drop of 20, 25 degrees from a perspective of when it’s 105 degrees out ... And it’s a huge change of not only climate but terrain. You go from desert to mountains and pine trees. What are your hobbies? Sports … basketball and softball and just generally going to the gym, but I do like to golf and some hiking…But it kind of revolves now around the kids … coaching or helping to coach or, if I don’t coach, at least going to the games. Are there any downsides to living in Arizona? The longer you live here, the more the summers and the hot weather start to wear on you … but there’s a lot longer, cold, wintry wet, snowy spells in a lot of other places! What is your favorite thing about working in security? Working to understand a customer’s security problem, solving that problem, and supporting the solution in a manner that best fits the needs of each customer. —Tess Nacelewicz Periodicals Postage Rates paid at Yarmouth, ME and additional mailing office.
