How long have you been working at Invision Security? 

I’ve been working at Invision for a year and a half.

What was your first impression of Invision Security?

My first impression of Invision Security was a great atmosphere, good people. I couldn’t wait to start to work with them.

Why did you make the move to Invision Security?

I made the move to Invision Security because I moved back into the area and I was looking for one of the leading integrators and they were hiring and here I am.

What do you enjoy most about working at Invision Security?

There are so many things that I enjoy which makes it tough to single out one, but I would say the flexibility of being able to make an impact on so many different types of people all the time, all day long every day. That’s what we do, it really is.

What has been the most important innovation you have witnessed in your lifetime?

Makes me think about how old I am. I would have to say the Cellphone. I’m old, right, not that old, but payphones were a thing for me, pagers were a thing for me. The cellphone is amazing.

What is your personal philosophy?

One of my personal philosophies is “Work smarter, not harder”.

What is one thing you cannot resist?

The one thing I cannot resist is Soda.

What is the best place you’ve traveled to and why?

The best place I’ve traveled to without a doubt would be Hawaii, for a week (which was too short) for my brother’s wedding. I would go back, actually, I would leave right now, Bye! I really would, it’s an awesome place.

Employee Spotlight: Erica Rigler

,

At ISG, all of our team members are hard-working, motivated individuals! One of those individuals is Sr. Sales Executive, Erica Rigler, and we want to recognize her drive and talent in this month’s Employee Spotlight!

How long have you been working at Invision Security? 

I’ve been working at Invision Security for about a year and a half.

What was your first impression of Invision Security?

My first impression of Invision was fresh, young, forward-thinking, the ability to think outside-the-box type of atmosphere. That was what I first felt when I came in for my initial set of interviews and then when I first started working here. I think that’s what I still find here today.

Why did you make the move to Invision Security?

I made the move to Invision Security for several reasons. The first being, I wanted a better customer experience for the end-users. I wanted a more family atmosphere and I had been in the national accounts in the larger organizations for quite some time and felt pretty much as though I was just a number and wasn’t able to provide the service that I wanted to for my clients. Also, my upper mobility wasn’t quite where I thought it should be, so that’s why I made the move.

What do you enjoy most about working at Invision Security?

The thing I enjoy most about Invision Security Group would probably be the fun and light atmosphere in the office, everyone is very friendly and it seems more like a family setting as opposed to everyone just comes in and sits in their space and doesn’t interact.

How do you define success?

I define success based on my reputation… if someone hears my name, or is engaged with someone that knows me, they say positive things about me. On a personal note, I define success because I have got some great kids and that’s my biggest accomplishment is my kids.

What does true leadership mean to you?

True leadership to me is someone who has the ability to allow their people, their peers, their direct reports, the ability to be themselves, think freely, approach them with ideas, embrace those ideas and take into account and consideration everything everyone is saying and to get in with their people, their teams, and really be part of the day to day and what is going on and be open. That’s what I think is the most important thing.

What is the best or most impactful book that you have ever read?

The most impactful book I’ve ever read would be, without question, “Lean In” by Sheryl Sandberg. I love that book; it spoke to me in a lot of ways and I think that it does many people.

What is the best place you’ve traveled to and why?

The best travel experience I have had thus far would be Spain. The reason it was the best for me was I found that it was the most profound experience from an architectural standpoint and the visuals, sunsets, I thought it was very breathtaking. And good wine, always important.

What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?

The one thing that I cannot live without, at this point in my life, and I think it would vary depending on where you are in your life, but right now it would be my husband, my marriage. The kids are grown, they’ve pretty much flown the nest and it’s a happy time. And of course, I have to have wine, I could never live without the wine, so there’s that.
