Show 138 with Tom Simpson of AAA Certified Confidential Security Corp

Tom Simpson Tom Simpson, President, AAA Certified Confidential Security Corp.

Being “first” at anything is a major accomplishment. Think of the Wright Brothers and the first flight. Then there was John Alcock and Arthur Brown accomplishing the first cross-Atlantic flight. (Sorry Lindbergh fans. He didn’t actually make his crossing till eight years after they had.) And don’t forget Chuck Yeager and the first supersonic flight he flew in the famed Bell X-1 airplane.

First matters. No one can ever take away that designation and status once you’ve achieved it.

Our guest today has a history of being first. He’s done it in the shredding industry a few times. Tom Simpson is the President of AAA Certified Confidential Security Corp based in Peoria, IL. Tom and his company were the first NAID AAA Certified shredding company in the world. They were also among the first members of NAID back when it was started. And Tom also drives race cars. (Do you see a pattern emerging?)

Tom is a destruction industry giant. If you are in the shredding business, he’s someone who has paved the way for you and has been instrumental in leadership within the industry. Today, we’ll learn more about him and his story.

We will also get you caught up on the latest industry news.

Show 133 with Richard Reese of Iron Mountain Part 1

Richard Reese Richard Reese. Former President, CEO and Chairman of Iron Mountain

In 1981, Richard Reese was recruited by Vin Ryan to be the President of Iron Mountain, a small, regional underground records and data storage business. At the time Richard took the helm, it was a $3 million-a-year company. Today, he retires from leading this $3 billion-a-year-plus global conglomerate.

Not only did Richard lead his company to incredible success, he has been instrumental in the leadership and direction the entire RIM industry has taken. His influence is significant in the services we offer, the associations we are a part of, and the amazing business world we live in.

While many in the greater RIM industry compete with Iron Mountain on a daily basis, Richard’s success and story is worthy of applause and admiration. He is a brilliant strategist and business leader, and I’m thrilled to honor him and his contribution upon his retirement.

Today on the show we’ll share the first half of an extended interview I conducted with Richard as he arrived in Florida to begin his official retirement. In Part 1, we’ll dig into his own personal story and the growth of Iron Mountain. Part 2 of the interview will play on next week’s show. You won’t want to miss it.

We will also get you caught up on the latest industry news.
