Tino founded the original company back in 2005 and merged in several other companies, GMC Security , Shamrock Patrol, ASE Security and American Central Protection over the years.
In 2014 he decided to take on a more behind-the-scenes role and to take time to travel and less time directly at the helm. Today in his vital role as Treasurer/CFO he also has the freedom to travel around the globe and enjoy the fruits of his labor without the day-to-day responsibilities.
Along with following the invoicing and accounts receivable and payable, and payroll, he also maintains our compliance with licensing, insurance, worker's compensation claims and record keeping.
These duties are a full-time job within themselves but Tino does them just as well here at HQ as he does from a beach house in the Philippines.
At times he's probably working harder as "semi-retired" as he did full time.
