Introducing KJK Today: Year-End 2018

We are pleased to present the latest issue of our revamped newsletter KJK Today: Year-End 2018Here is a quick look inside at a few stories you will find:

3 | Client Spotlight: Gillmore Security

When Alan Gillmore Jr. entered the residential security market in 1971, there wasn’t much of a market to speak of. Most large security companies were focused on commercial clients, but Gillmore thought residential security systems would be the wave of the future. So when Alan Jr. saw an ad in the Wall Street Journal for Westinghouse Home Security Systems, he signed on as its first franchisee in Cleveland. His son, Alan III, then teaching English in the inner city, soon joined his father’s fledgling business, making cold calls to homeowners offering an in-home demonstration.

 

6 | Introducing Connective Counsel

For the last several years, KJK has worked to become one of the most technologically advanced law firms in the world. As part of that mission, and to increase our efficiency and level of service, we looked for a software solution that would focus on your needs, providing you with access to your files and resources that you need to run and grow your business. When we realized it didn’t exist, we decided to create it ourselves.
