Embracing our Past While We Move Towards the Future
Over the course of Sentinel’s history, our family has evolved and grown.
We have worked through some high calibre events, and with some high calibre VIP’s.
We have worked weddings big and small.
Hotels, fine dining, high end bars, and high class stores.
We have run much of the gauntlet of the security world.
Through all of this, we have learned every step of the way.
We have taken our experiences and evolved our business and grown our client base.
Our clients, friends, and coworkers have become our family.
The pillars and foundation of our company has grown solid over these past years with each individual playing their own integral role in the evolution of our Sentinel family.
When the pandemic hit we ducked and rolled with the punches like never before.
Our tight knit team stood strong and united and did what we had to so that we could once again evolve and make it through to the best of our ability.
And we didn’t just make it through, we’ve thrived.
Our family continues to grow just as our experience and footing in the security world.
However with all changes and all doors that open, we have to accept that there is always the possibility that as we walk through the next door that opens, we may be leaving something behind.
Often that something is what is pushing us through that door in the first place.
A small push so that we continue with that forward momentum that propels us through life.
In other cases, sometimes the things – or the people that we leave behind, are the ones that helped us shape who we are and got us to where we are in the first place.
In the very near future, our Sentinel family will be saying ‘see you soon’ to one of our pillars.
One of the ‘old school family’ that really dug deep to help shape Sentinel into what and who we are today.
He helped train and raise our teammates as if they were his own pride and joy.
Taking pride in not only everything that he has done, but the accomplishments that those he’s brought through the ranks as well.
In the quiet moments where he wasn’t helping others rise to achieve their own personal successes, he would be neck deep in the roots of our company.
Ensuring that not only did we look good in person, but also on paper.
He had a hand in establishing a lot of the markings of not just who made a Sentinel, but what.
He helped build training programs, policy, procedure and other foundational items that truly made our house a home.
He ensured that while we always stood firm in our roots and our history, we kept our sights on what lay ahead and never stopped dreaming or working towards our goals.
And while all good things don’t always have to come to an end, there are occasions in which professional ways do take their separate paths.
We will be eternally grateful for everything that was brought and built as a company and as a family.
Our foundation will be ever be marked by everything that he ever brought to the table and we will never forget him.
Cat, we wish you nothing but the best in the next steps of your journey and know that while the entirety of the world is big, our security world is small and hopefully our paths will one day cross again.
Wherever our paths lead, we will remember the beginning where our road started together and we will continue to travel and wait for when we may just cross paths again.
