Success tale of Cincinnati Metro and ARMADA
Here’s the story of how Cincinnati Metro and ARMADA worked together. Since Cincinnati Metro hadn’t exercised its security plan for many years, there was great hesitation from them as they started this process. “I can tell you that the professional service that we received from Armada was the success of our mission,” says the director of security at the organization, Mike Weil. ARMADA was able to custom tailor a scenario that challenged Cincinnati Metro organization without disrupting the day to day operations and provided with solid feedback. It even created a solid footing to improve upon in the future. “We will certainly use Armada again in the future, and I would highly recommend any initiative that Lee Foster is involved in,” he says positively.
