What do an army general's bodyguard and a Cisco phone salesman have in common? If you ask Brad Pyles, regional manager for Orion Systems Group (OSG), he'll tell you both roles have helped prepare him to fill his current role as a systems integrator. OSG has between $8M and $10M in annual sales and sells and deploys video surveillance and access control systems. The 60-person company was recently chosen to install a security and monitoring solution for the new 22,000-seat KFC Yum! Center (a multipurpose events center which is home to the University of Louisville men's and women's basketball programs) in Louisville, KY.
