Firestorm Newest Franchisee brings Extensive Crisis Management Experience to Gulf Coast
Firestorm adds Alabama to its National Network
Jan. 30, 2013 - Firestorm is pleased to announce their new franchise, Rapid Resolve LLC, has been established in Alabama. The owners are Paige Rucker and Brett Ledet. Paige has a diverse background in marketing, media relations, project and crisis management. She is currently involved in disaster recovery for the Alabama Gulf Coast as a result of the largest man-made disaster in history – the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill.
Brett is a dedicated and results driven sales manager with over 13 years of successful new business development, competitive market share expansion and customer relationship development.
Said Jim Satterfield, Firestorm President and COO: "Paige and Brett bring unique expertise and insight to Firestorm. Their experiences in providing assistance in this disaster exposed area clearly demonstrates their personal commitment to empower people to manage risk and crises."
"We are very excited to join a nationally recognized and trusted leader in crisis readiness. My role as State Director for Project Rebound, an Alabama based crisis and resource organization, continues to prove how a massive disaster, such as the oil spill, can cripple even the most resilient communities. And if there's one take away, it's this – Preparedness isn't a luxury, it's the cost of doing business. Both Brett and I are thrilled with the opportunity to teach organizations how to empower themselves to manage risk and crisis so that 'disaster due diligence' isn't an afterthought but a way of doing business," said Paige Rucker, Principal, Firestorm.
The new franchise resides in Fairhope, Alabama, and will service companies anywhere in the United States. The Principals can be reached via the Firestorm website.
