Allstar Fire Protection, Inc. is a locally owned and operated fire protection company in the Nashville Tn. Market. We have been in business since April of 1991. Founded by Glenn Harris and Mark Hims to provide fire sprinkler installation and services while maintaining an eye towards their Christian values. They have operated the business admirably for many years with many successful projects under their belts.
Not wanting to see the company and the loyal employees left behind as Mark and Glenn retire from the day to day operation of the company, Mark and Glenn began their exit strategy and implementing their succession plan for the company, Casey Milhorn was named CEO and 1/3 owner very recently, along with the hiring of Shannon Day, CFO,
With the new management team in place, and eye towards growth, there was a real need for some assistance and guidance. We were approached by Cogent some time before this and were skeptical of having someone come in and provide consulting services to us on how to run our business. We could not see the value in this service. We could not have been more wrong.
Working with John Moscicki from Cogent has been a pleasure, and most of all, a real eye opener for us. Thanks to John, we now have a plan in place to optimize our resources we currently have, and know what steps we should take next. And even more importantly, we know which ones to focus on first, second, third, etc. I cannot think of one aspect of our company that has not benefited from Johns guidance and Cogent’s services that were provided.
If asked whether or not we would do it all over again, my answer would be a very resounding YES! The only regret is why we did not do this sooner- Our thanks and gratitude go out to John and the Cogent team on helping us become the company that we should be, and this is only the beginning of the process for us. We are extremely excited to see what fruits come of the seed that was planted by John and his team.
