Schlabach Security and Sound has announced that Richard Spires has joined the team for Marketing and Sales. A sixth generation Floridian and longtime resident of Citrus County, Richard brings many years of experience in media sales and advertising.
"It’s exciting to join a company with such a great reputation. Being able to market and sell their brand, quality sales and service, along with the emerging forefront of Smart Home Technology is a pleasure," Richard explained.
While not originally from Citrus County, Richard’s family ties run deep. In the early 1900’s, his great grandfather ran the first general store in Hernando and served as the towns first postmaster. His great grandmother, known to all as “Granny Spires,” wrote for the Citrus County Chronicle for over 32 years.
Since making Citrus County his full-time home in 2005, Richard has been involved with local charities, including the CCBA and the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce.
When not at work, his hobbies include fishing, writing, doing stand-up comedy and taking care of his dog, Archie.
