CertaSite's industry insights with Security Sales and Integration

Fire and life safety is a robust industry with many companies that have been around for decades. When CertaSite was formed almost four years ago, the leadership team never could have imagined what was around the corner – a global pandemic. Still, with a mission to provide a meaningful impact to as many lives as possible, CertaSite and its industry experienced team set out to disrupt the fire and life safety industry in more ways than one.

Jeff Wyatt, CertaSite’s CEO, and Kelly Henderson, CertaSite’s Chief Marketing & Strategy Implementation Officer, recently sat down with Security Sales & Integration’s Scott Goldfine, editor-in-chief and associate publisher, to share CertaSite’s story.

Throughout the conversation, Jeff and Kelly discuss CertaSite’s leading services and technology, including CertaSite’s top three services and growth opportunities. They each provide insight into what makes CertaSite different from other fire and life safety companies, a customer-focused approach, and how the company continues navigating the troubled waters of the pandemic.

CertaSite is a commercial fire protection and life safety company founded in 2018.
