Ronald Fowlkes: Watching Backs
Our military and armed forces are the best of the best. They are trained to stop any force on the planet and to protect the citizens of our country. But the question is who is watching their backs for protection? Well, I recently found out its people like Ronald Fowlkes. This former U.S. marine and SWAT member is doing a job that people don’t usually think about.
Ronald Fowlkes is the Manager of Business development for First Spear a company that creates tactical gear to protect soldiers, policeman, and even security guards. Ronald always had a love for the military and at 17 joined the marines right out of high school. After spending years in the field, he now dedicates his time to this new craft. He actually first came to know First Spear as a soldier himself and always remembered the great quality of the product. His experience in the field has lead him to know what gear and quality is needed by our military to do their job thoroughly. Ronald believes deeply in teamwork and thinks that’s what spurs the success of many of his ideas. In fact, he thinks surrounding one’s self and learning how to manage or delegate them is something imperative and he recommends others to do so. Recently they came up with new technology involving tubes and laser cutting that has lightened the new gear sets by 40%. Ronald’s strategy to grow businesses is too simply focus on customer satisfaction and with this job satisfaction from the customers is 100% imperative as lives are involved.
Ronald Fowlkes tries to balance his personal activities and office job every day. He spends a lot of his early work day getting calls from international buyers. First Spear equipment however is made completely domestically in the U.S. Ronald Fowlkes seems to work like a well-oiled machine in the job place and seems to his own system of getting things done. He likes to write everything down and it definitely pays off. Ronald Fowlkes uses his experience as a soldier to make our soldiers safer with his designs from First Spear. With him there to support its hard to see the military failing in any venture.
