Excellence in Partnerships
Steve Hyle, Vice President, Director of National Accounts, AFA Protective Systems
“It was during my tenure in retail loss prevention that I discovered my passion for finding solutions to promote sales and better protect assets and people,” said Hyle. “During my retail career, I was truly fortunate to work with a number of highly respected solution providers that were instrumental in providing the knowledge and support to help me succeed. Through these relationships, I discovered the tools, techniques, and skills to make a positive difference in my company and my career.
“I’ve always considered sincerity to be an important virtue in business and in life. Sincerity provides the foundation for establishing trust and honesty in any relationship. A true solution provider is also a genuine business partner, striving to build relationships and dedicated to both achieving success in business as well as the growth and development of those involved. They’re unselfish and eager to share their knowledge for the benefit of others. They want to make a positive difference.
“Successful partnerships require mutual commitment and accountability. Like any relationship, the growth and longevity of a partnership is measured by the extent to which both parties are committed to support each other and deliver on the promises made along the way. Be thoughtful and sincere when making promises to others and always follow through on your commitments regardless of their importance.”
