I have worked at Protection 1 for 3 years. My favorite thing about working at Protection 1 is the energy and passion that everyone gives each day in trying to do the right thing for our customers and each other. My advice to potential applicants is be prepared to be challenged or don't bother joining. We will expect your best and count on your discretionary effort every step of the way. The rewards of working for a company as successful as ours just begin to be measured in terms of compensation - you will learn from the best and develop business skills that will benefit you throughout your entire career. Outside of P1, I enjoy spending time with my family doing almost anything. Don's Bio: Donald Young joined the alarm industry in 1988 after serving 4 years in the United States Air Force as a Computer Programmer Analyst with a Top Secret Clearance. He started with SecurityLink in November, 1988 and since then has worked for SAI, SecurityLink (again), and Stanley Tools and co-founded Alarm Security Group (ASG) and HSM (Honeywell Security Monitoring). His roles have included central station manager, operations and general management, corporate director, director of call center operations, VP of information technology and CIO.
In 2010 Donald accepted his current position as CIO of Protection 1 in charge of all call center operations, information technology and telecommunications. Donald received both an Associate Degree in Data Processing and a BS in Computer Science from the American Military University.
Donald has served on the Board of Directors for the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA) for the past three years and is currently the President of the Partnership for Priority Video Alarm Response (PPVAR). Fun fact: Don has traveled to quite a few places in his lifetime but has yet to find any place that makes him happier than driving through the entrance of Disney World. The place has made his dreams come true ever since he visited it for the first time over 37 years ago and he'll be retiring there as soon as humanly possible.
