Faces of Weston with Iliana Cardentey of Title Authority
Posted On December 13, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Buying and selling a property takes time and involves many different people such as real estate agents, buyers, sellers, mortgage brokers but also a title agent.  But what does a title company do?

Title companies play several key roles in common real estate transactions. Title companies generally act as the combined agent of the insurance company, the buyer, the seller, and any other parties related to a real estate transaction, such as mortgage lenders. The title company reviews title issues, insurance policies, facilitates closings, and files and records paperwork.

Recently we sat down with Iliana Cardentey of Title Authority to learn more about her company, how she got started, why she chose Lakeside and what she enjoys doing when not working. 

Tell us about your company and what you do?

Title Authority is a bilingual South Florida Title company that specializes in real estate closings, title insurance, title searches and escrow services. Our goal is to provide quality customer service at a competitive price.

How did you get started in your industry?

I became a Licensed Title Agent 18 years ago. I wanted not just a job, but a trade where I could help individuals reach the American dream. 

What is something about your business that most people do not know?

Our personal touch of going that extra mile to make sure that the transaction closes.  Whether it is at a Starbucks Coffee Shop, a Senior Living facility, or on the hood of a car, we will make it happen.  We take the initiative and get it done. 

Where do you see your business in 5 years?

In the next 5 years, I see myself revealing the grand opening of two additional offices in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach County and to become a very successful female entrepreneur.

Tell me about yourself?

I was born in Havana Cuba in 1967. I am the youngest of 3 siblings. I left the Castro regime in 1969 with my family and was raised in Paterson, New Jersey.  At the age of 13, I moved to Florida with my family and have been here since then.  I graduated from Hialeah Senior High School in 1985 and attended Miami Dade Community College after graduation like most graduates. I attended Florida International University afterward to obtain my Paralegal Certification. I worked at numerous different jobs from Retail Stores, Fitness Centers and a personal injury firm. It was not until I was exposed to the Real Estate Industry that I knew what I enjoyed and what I wanted to do. Especially educating individuals on what I know best. Which is Title. 

When the market crashed in the year 2008, I attended Keiser University and majored in Health Services Administration. I was not sure if the real estate market would ever be the same and wanted to prepare myself for the worst. I negotiated Short Sales for a while until I finally was able to return to what I enjoyed and did best. Using my knowledge and experience as a Title Agent to close transactions and manage many offices. I worked at many different agencies and law firms and took a lot of abuse from bad employers and hoped that someday I would be able to open my own. That dream came true in August of 2019. After all these years I finally accomplish the dream I had for such a long time. My very own agency. 

Other than work, what are you passionate about?

I work as a volunteer for the elderly. Also, spending quality time with my son and elderly parents.

What types of activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of work?

I enjoy reading romantic novels and espionage and military-science novels. My favorite authors are Nicolas Sparks, Tom Clancy and Danielle Steele.  And by the way one of my favorite places is Disney World in Orlando.

Why did you choose Lakeside and how has working here helped your business?

We choose Lakeside Executive Suites for the location along with the concierge-like services they provide which allow for a happy work environment.

Faces of Weston with Rosalind J. Matos from Matos Legal, PLLC
Posted On August 28, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

This month we were excited to sit down with Rosalind J. Matos of Matos Legal, PLLC.  Her legal career began in public interest law as the South Florida Staff Counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida in Miami where she spent almost eight years working in a wide range of civil liberties areas, including police misconduct, racial profiling, privacy rights, freedom of speech, student rights, freedom of religion/separation of church and state, among others.

At the ACLU, she successfully litigated federal cases raising civil liberties and civil rights issues; evaluated the constitutionality of pending legislation; testified before legislative committees (state and local); worked with advocates and legislative staff to promote civil liberty interests, including lobbying government officials and drafting proposed legislation. She was a member of the Miami-Dade Racial Profiling Advisory Board and a lobbyist for the Civilian Investigative Panel (CIP), which is tasked with investigating complaints of police misconduct in Miami-Dade County.

Moreover, Ms. Matos also served as a Spanish media spokesperson for the organization and participated in media interviews, TV and radio shows, debates, press conferences and public speaking engagements to discuss a variety of civil liberties issues.

After leaving the ACLU, Attorney Matos decided to continue to do public interest work and went to work with Legal Aid Service of Broward County in the Consumer Unit doing foreclosure defense work. She provided legal assistance to low-income families facing foreclosure who did not have the resources to hire an attorney but wanted to save their homes.

Thereafter, Attorney Matos worked at Glantz & Glantz as an Associate Attorney in charge of the foreclosure department. There, she handled residential and commercial foreclosures and represented borrowers in all aspects of litigation from inception to conclusion. Approximately, five and half years ago, Attorney Matos took the leap and opened her own law firm, Matos Legal, PLLC.

Tell us about your company and what you do?

Matos Legal, PLLC is a South Florida based civil litigation law firm handling cases in the tri-county area (Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach). We represent clients, both individuals and businesses, seeking legal representation in civil litigation matters, including foreclosure defense, real property, landlord-tenant disputes, consumer and contract disputes, personal injury and civil rights.

How did you get started in your industry?

I graduated from law school in 2000. I’ve been practicing law for over 18 years now, since 2001.  I landed my dream job right out of law school at the ACLU.  At the ACLU, I learned from the Best of the Best.  I was lucky enough to have had the best mentors and be surrounded by the most skilled, committed and passionate attorneys.  I learned how to be a great advocate and civil litigator, but most importantly, they taught me how to litigate with integrity and professionalism.

What is something about your business that most people do not know?

I belong to the Broward Lawyers Care Program at Legal Services of Broward County and litigate pro bono cases.  I am fully bilingual; English and Spanish.  I majored in Hospitality Management.  This background has helped me understand the importance of building and maintaining strong relationships with my clients and to always pay special attention to client satisfaction. 

Tell me about yourself.

I love my job and what I do.  I’m passionate about helping people find solutions to their legal problems.  I’m an attorney during workdays and a soccer mom at night and on weekends.  

Other than work, what are you passionate about? 

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and love to watch my three sons play competitive soccer throughout the state.  I like the outdoors and any body of water – beach, ocean, lakes, rivers.  Also, I’m passionate about books!  I’m an avid reader!  I like historical fiction, thrillers, suspense and romance. I can lay on the beach with my Kindle all day long. 

What types of activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of work? 

I enjoy working out at the gym, weight training, running, reading, travel, great food and wine, and hanging out with family and friends.  

Why did you choose Lakeside and how has working here helped your business? 

I chose Lakeside Executive Suites because of its location, friendly and efficient staff, the office layout, decoration and amenities. But mostly, because of the great staff!

Faces of Weston with Mariana Nava
Posted On July 31, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

This month we decided to do something a little different.  Instead of getting to know one of our fantastic members, we thought it would be fun to learn more about one of our amazing team members at Lakeside Executive Suites.   

Recently, we sat down with our community manager, Mariana Nava, who is excited about her baby boy due in October, to learn what she does in her free time, her passions, why she joined our team and the best advice she has received. 

What are somethings that you do every morning to get yourself ready for the day?

I have a big bowl of cereal while I hang out with my two loving puppies, which gets me in a great mood to go on with my day.

What are you currently watching on Netflix?

Money Heist Season 3, which is about the planning of grand theft and this time, they want to take the gold from the Bank of Spain.

What’s your secret talent that no one knows about?

Well, I would say singing, but I’m very shy, so I don’t do it in public. However, I auditioned in Latin American Idol when I was 16 years old, which was an awesome experience.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I like to read fiction, play with my puppies, crochet and watch TV with my husband.

What are you passionate about?

Reading and writing. I have a bachelor’s in Journalism with a minor in English, and that’s what made me fall in love with literature.

What energizes you at work? What drains you?

I’m always energetic at work because there are always things to get done, and also, the staff and members make it easy for me to enjoy my day.

Why did you decide to join the team at Lakeside?

Because the environment they have created is amazing. My manager, Ysel, and my coworker, Millie, always find ways to make it fun for everyone every day.

What’s one thing that surprised you about working at Lakeside?

That our manager was so much fun! We always think that managers are a little tough, but Ysel cares so much about her staff and help us out in every way she can. She still coaches us when needed, but she does it, so we learn and improve instead of making us feel bad if we did something wrong.

If you can add one thing to the Lakeside office, what would it be?

I think we have everything we need right now! We have great customer service, amazing members, fun monthly events and lots of coffee (although I don’t drink it, I’m sure the office wouldn’t be the same without it).

What’s the best piece of professional advice you’ve ever received? Never take anything personally when working in customer service because most of the time, it’s not about you. I’ve worked in customer service since I was in college, and it has helped me develop a lot of patience, which benefits me not only at work but also in other areas of my life.

Faces of Weston with Becky Albury of Learning Enabled
Posted On June 26, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

During the 2017-2018 school year, there were 7 million students ages 3 to 21 receiving services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. These students represented 14 percent of all kids attending public schools. 

Often times, the assistance students receive through public schools isn’t enough.  Some students need extra attention and that’s where trained educational therapists can offer the expertise needed to make significant differences. 

This month, we sat down with Becky Albury of Learning Enabled, a dedicated and passionate child advocate with the enthusiasm and focus to make a positive impact on students’ academic, social and emotional level. 

Tell us about your company and what do you do?

I work one-on-one with individuals with various learning disabilities. I specialize in reading disorders and work with everyone from ages five to adult. I look at the way the brain processes reading and work to fill in the missing area with the processing.

How did you decide to start your business?

After working with private consulting agencies for reading students, it led me to see the gap in reading remediation that could be filled by the role of an educational therapist in the community. I opened my office in 2012 and continue to work with other professionals in the community of educators.

What are some early signs or indications in children that show a potential learning disability?

It depends on the disability. For reading difficulties, not being able to rhyme is an early predictor as well as receptive language delays. Reversing letters in small children is not an early predictor of dyslexia. You can’t be diagnosed with it until 8 years old, however, you can be diagnosed with a phonological delay earlier. Sometimes you grow out of it and sometimes you don’t. If the delay persists, it may change into a dyslexia diagnosis.  

What do you love best about your job?

That I get to work with everyone from kids to grown-ups. I can take off my shoes, sit in my bean bags and play Candyland with the kids and also have more philosophical conversations with the adults. I like seeing the change of someone who feels horrible about themselves end up feeling happy. People who lived under the label of being called “stupid” realize they have a lot to offer.

What is something about your business that most people do not know?

That I am not a tutor. I am one of the few educational therapists in the State of Florida endorsed by the Association of Educational Therapists. I don’t work on assignments from school and filling in the gaps with content. I work on teaching someone HOW to learn.

Where do you see your business in 5 years?

As my practice continues to grow, I see myself adding more professionals to my team.

What types of activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of work?

I enjoy spending time in the water kayaking.  Also, I practice Kung Fu, enjoy reading and spending time with my husband and two children.  

Why did you choose Lakeside and how has working here helped your business?

I initially chose Lakeside because they were one of the few centers who allowed me to have kids in the office and also have a comfortable lobby for their parents. As I took on more students, I began using the administrative services to help with my scheduling and invoicing. It has been a life saver for my business.  You can hear more about Becky’s experience at Lakeside Executive Suites here

Faces of Weston with Nnamdi Jackson
Posted On May 21, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Earlier this month, we sat down with Nnamdi Jackson, an employment commercial litigation attorney who provides legal counsel on broad range of business disputes and contentious commercial litigation matters.

Nnamdi Jackson also understands the vitality of employment law in creating safe, productive, and fair work environments. Equality within the workplace ensures that everyone has equal opportunities to fair compensation and cannot be denied hire, benefits, promotion or reasonable accommodations for prejudicial reasons. Mr. Jackson litigates cases involving unlawful discrimination, harassment, termination, unpaid wages, and other labor issues.

How did you get started in your industry? 

After graduating law school, I worked for a law firm that did general business litigation. Of the wide variety of cases I litigated, the employment cases were the most interesting. Thus, when I left in November 2016 to start my own firm, I decided to specialize in employment law. 

What is something about your business that most people do not know? 

A lot of the cases I litigate involve violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. For such cases, many prospective clients are surprised to learn that they first have to file a charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) prior to filing a lawsuit in court.My firm represents clients through the EEOC process and litigation in court. 

Where do you see your business in 5 years? 

Partnering with another like-minded attorney.

Tell me about yourself? 

I was raised in South Florida. I got my bachelor’s from Florida International University. Afterwards, I helped start a video production company which is still operating in Miami. After a few years I left and attended FIU’s law school. 

Other than work, what are you passionate about? 

I enjoy history; most of the novels I purchase are historical. I recently finished “Lincoln’s Last Trial”, which is about Abraham Lincoln’s last murder trial where he knew both the alleged murderer and the victim. I also travel frequently outside the United States.  

What types of activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of work? 

I often play basketball with friends. 

Why did you choose Lakeside and how has working here helped your business? 

After meeting with Ysel, I knew Lakeside Executive Suites was the right place for starting my firm. I have gotten numerous clients in Weston and the surrounding area. Staff have been very courteous and professional with clients during their visits.

Faces of Weston with Troy Modlin
Posted On April 30, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Pictured Left to Right: Sasha Clarke, Fara Lessem, Tina Franco, Troy Modlin, Jose Alfonso & Matthew Franco

Did you know that more than 63 million people are residents of communities with a homeowner’s association? That means 24 percent of U.S. homes are in community associations. This month we had the opportunity to learn more homeowners associations by talking with Troy Modlin.  From Troy, we’ll learn about his company, his background and why he chose Lakeside Executive Suites.

Tell us about your company and what you do?

Troy’s Property Management Group is a property management company the focuses our attention on homeowner associations and condo’s.   Part of the management includes payables, receivables and monthly financials, in addition to managing all of the independent contractors that the community hires.

How did you get started in your industry?

I started in 2006 working out of Cooper City.  TPMG was started in February of 2014 managing 4 HOA’s in Weston that I currently continue to manage.  After moving to Weston in 2004 a friend of mine asked me if I would be interested in property management since, he worked for a company.  Our conversations sparked my interest.  Once I began working in management, I was immediately approached by many different associates & vendors about starting my own company.  I was told on numerous occasions that what I was providing to my communities is special and stood out amongst the competition.  After many years of encouragement and small loans from my father and friends, I took a leap of faith and purchased the accounts I was managing from my old company.  In addition, I was able to retain the employment of my assistant Tina Franco who also took a leap of faith to follow me in my endeavor.  Since 2014 I can honestly say that each day is a blessing and I have never been happier.

What is something about your business that most people do not know?

Most homeowner’s living in a community do not realize that management is not the enemy and work at the board of director’s direction.  At TPMG we strive to provide personal communication with everyone.  We do our best to provide a human voice and interaction with the homeowners on a daily basis.  As the owner of the company it is my goal to provide solutions to issues and communicate them to the owners and the Board of Directors.

Where do you see your business in 5 years?

Our goal in 5 years is to be able to provide the same high-quality service as we do today without diluting our core mission of serving the communities in Weston and the surrounding area.

Tell me about yourself?

I was born in NYC and grew up in Great Neck, Long Island.   I am very proud of my background of being a graduate from Boston University and attending New York Law School.  I live in Weston with my wife Tammy and my two boys Charlie (15) and Shane (10) who have gone to school in Weston.  I am also a proud member of B’nai Aviv and served on the Board of Directors for five years. 

Other than work, what are you passionate about?

I am passionate about my children and my family.  My oldest son is a freshman at Western High School and is the clean-up hitter on JV.  As a former Division 1 Baseball Player at Boston University, it makes me very proud that he chose to follow in my footsteps. 

What types of activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of work?

Most of my activities outside of work involve my kids.  We love to go fishing and do watersport activities.  Every Sunday you will find me playing Basketball at B’nai Aviv.

Why did you choose Lakeside and how has working here helped your business?

There were several options I looked into before deciding on Lakeside Executive Suites.  However, I was sold the first day I came here to visit a friend of mine here.   The very friendly receptionist answered all of my questions and provided amazing energy and customer service.  That person was Ysel Hernandez.  Why do I continue to appreciate Lakeside?  Simply because it is like a family atmosphere that is close to home.  Anytime I have a question or issue, the staff has a solution. 

Faces of Weston with Jackie Bruder of Mended Minds
Posted On March 26, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Did you know that an estimated 8% of American have suffered at some time from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD.  To put that in perspective, that’s over 24 million Americans which is more than the population of Florida.  Those rates become even more alarming for first responders.  There are estimates of up to 37% for PTSD among firefighters.

With PTSD having such an impact on our community of Weston; we wanted to learn more.  This month we sat down with Jackie Bruder; who has a lifetime of experience in the fire service industry and now helps people who struggle with PTSD.  We will learn about her company, her background, what she is passionate about and why she chose Lakeside Executive Suites

Tell us about your company and what you do?

Mended Minds is state of the art technology that helps persons with a multitude of ailments like PTSD, TBI (Trauma Brain Injury) Concussion syndrome, Depression, Anxiety, Migraines, Insomnia, ADD/ADHD, & persons on the Autism spectrum. 

Various studies have shown a common thread between a neurological disorder or dysfunction and increased levels of delta brainwave activity.  This increased delta wave activity causes a release of chemicals and hormones which keep our bodies and minds in a constant state of fight or flight.  Some people live in a constant state of fight or flight for years, even some since birth, which can lead to years of pain and misery for the patient and their family.  Most modern treatment modalities are only treating symptoms not the core issue.

The Mended Minds team can make a difference in your life by using a full approach, focusing on mind, body, and lifestyle.  Mended Minds uses The IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback System to help reboot your brain and restore its natural state of being, which has been shown to be over 85% effective in reducing the symptoms associated with these neurological disorders.

How did you get started in your industry? 

Prior to opening Mended Minds, I spent the past 30 years in the fire service as a firefighter paramedic with Miami Dade Fire Rescue.  I spent considerable amount of time watching human suffering, including those of my fellow Firefighters.  Watching children lose their parents, parents lose their children…it changes you, and sometimes those changes don’t fade.  You also have the opportunity to save lives in ways you never imagined possible.  Delivering babies, reviving people from plane crashes, diving into a canal at night with SCUBA gear to pull out a mom while her child watched on the shoreline.  So after I retired from the fire department, life seemed a bit slow, empty…that is where Mended Minds came in.  A way of helping our own, the firefighters who are suffering from PTSD, helping people in ways we could not help before.  Giving back in a whole new way.

What is something about your business that most people do not know? 

Most people know nothing about our business!  Though a form of the technology was developed 50 years ago, our technology is presently the only one of its kind that has image based evidence of its success.  Presently, after treating military personnel with severe PTSD, the federal government has given the founder of our system (IASIS) a multi-million dollar grant with the University of South California to document the changes to the brain using a MEG.  A MEG lab allows visual changes in the brain to be documented in real time, visually..during the session. 

Where do you see your business in 5 years?

Our goal is to open offices all over the state of Florida to give access to those in need.

Tell me about yourself?

I come from a big family f six brothers and one sister.  I am married with 4 children and a houseful of pets.  We live in Davie, horse country, where everyone knows each other and people actually help their neighbors.  We ride around in golf carts and enjoy our kids playing together.  I love people and animals and spend most of my time with one or the other!

Other than work, what are you passionate about?

I’m passionate about raising our children to be independent, thoughtful, considerate, humble givers.  In a world that seems to lean toward the negative…I would like them to sway toward the positive.  To recognize suffering and be a part of the solution.  To give less than they take and appreciate the beauty of our planet.

What types of activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of work?

I love verything outdoors including water skiing, scuba diving, fishing, snow skiing, and long walks on the beach.

Why did you choose Lakeside and how has working here helped your business?

The people..hands down is the main reason.  Everyone is extremely friendly and happy to help at Lakeside Executive Suites.  I love the way it has open spaces to work and plenty of light coming in from the outdoors.  Last, but not least….location, location,’s extremely easy for our patients to come off the expressway to find us!

Faces of Weston with Samuel Rubert
Posted On February 19, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Did you know that there is a field in Alcohol & Beverage Law?  Neither did we until Samuel Rubert joined Lakeside.  We had the pleasure of sitting down with him and learning more about his unique business.  Samuel Rubert Law is a full-service law firm specializing in the alcoholic beverage industry.

They represent industry members, restaurants, bars, hotels, liquor stores, brewers, distillers, wineries, and wholesalers in all of their legal needs.  They manage transactions, including purchases and sales of business and assets, stock sales, leasing, and coordinate financing for our clients.  They represent them in obtaining all of the necessary licenses and permits to operate an alcoholic beverage business, including federal, state, and local licensing.  And when their clients need it, they aid in litigation with the regulating agencies (administrative litigation) as well as commercial litigation over contracts.

Samuel has an interesting journey into law and the alcoholic beverage industry.  After graduating from Columbia University with a bachelor’s degree in Math and Religion, he enrolled in culinary school at the French Culinary Institute in NYC.  “I wanted to explore the field after working as a bar back and bartender in college.”

After graduating, he began working at a 3-starred restaurant as a line cook.  Although he fell in love with the industry, working nights, weekends and holidays was not appealing.  So, he made the decision to enroll in law school at the University of Miami.  “I was hoping to be a ‘restaurant lawyer,’ not knowing if such a thing existed and I was fortunate to find a lawyer to mentor me, and the rest is history,” Samuel recalls. 

When asked what is something most people don’t know about your industry, Samuel laughed and said, “that the alcoholic beverage industry even exists”.  He continued, “most people don’t even think that there are Alcoholic Beverage Law attorneys.  Most people think attorneys spend all day in court or on real estate transactions, but when you stop to think about the fact that there are TWO (2) Constitutional Amendments relating to alcohol and counting all of the alcoholic beverage outlets you pass on your way to work every day, you start to realize how heavily regulated and widespread the industry is.  These businesses have unique and particular needs that vary, sometimes slightly and sometimes greatly, from most other businesses, and we provide the insight and expertise they require.”  

Samuel stays busy expanding his client base further throughout the state and country; but also finds time to spend with his family.  He enjoys traveling with his wife and daughters and opening up his daughters’ eyes to what a big world we live in with endless possibilities.

He also enjoys cooking, especially ‘low and slow’ barbecue, middle eastern food, and pasta.  “I also enjoy riding my bike to burn off all of those delicious calories,” Samuel adds.

Lakeside Executive Suites has been a great home for Samuel Rubert Law due to its proximity to his house, major roadways and reasonable pricing.  “I have stayed (and I love Lakeside) because of the people that work here (both staff and other tenants).”  Samuel continues, “I have had offices in other shared spaces, and this is by far the best.  The camaraderie, events, and value are as good as I have been around.  While I hope to grow my business, I hope I never outgrow Lakeside.”

Faces of Weston with Zeev Fragachan

Their expertise includes: workplace violence prevention; electronic systems design; access entry control; closed circuit television; communications and control; organization, policy and procedures; guard force development; executive protection; expert witness testimony and consulting; disaster planning and emergency preparedness; and critical incident management.

Dynamic Integrated Security assists all of its clients in the development of customized cutting-edge security systems and programs to enhance protection.

Zeev breaks it down by saying, “Essentially, we integrated the human side of security and combined it with the most advanced technology and developed our own software that allows us to customize our solutions for our clients.”

Many people in this field have interesting backgrounds and Zeev is no different.  He started in the Israel Defense Force and served for six years on a special force’s unit.  Then he moved to South America to work as a military advisor promoting Israeli defense industries before moving into the private sector.  From there he was a security advisor for Nestle, Four Seasons International, Amway, Johnson & Johnson and Wyeth Laboratories.

We asked Zeev what made his security firm stand out from his competitors.  “We are the only security company in the state of Florida that assigned body cameras as a standard issue to all of our employees.” He continued, “we also operate a fleet of vehicles equipped with network video recording, audio, GPS and remote data transmission in real time.

Dynamic Integrated Security is excited about their future.  The company is putting forth an aggressive marketing campaign with the goal to double in size.  Over the next five years, they plan to consolidate their share of the market by including new government clients while also pursuing new accounts.  Additionally, they are planning to invigorate the security market with the launch of new security products aimed at the corporate market.

Originally from Venezuela, Zeev moved to Israel when he was 17.  He credits his time in the military with his success today.  “I was very fortunate to serve in the Israeli military and learn my trade from the very best; especially as it relates to adapting to a changing environment.”  He continued, “I am part of an industry where the key element is adaptation.  Security firms have to adapt for the new realities of the market and the debut of new technologies.  Our ability to adapt, our specialization and our professional approach will be essential to compete in the market.”

When not working, Zeev enjoys volunteering with his wife, Jhonelba, at the Jewish Federation of Broward County on various charities; especially ones that involve new Jewish immigrants.  He also covets his family time with his daughter Rebecca and son David.  When he has free time to himself; he escapes to some competitive shooting. 

With the goal of expansion, choosing the right office space was essential.  He was introduced to Lakeside Executive Suites from a friend while working from a Regus location.  Zeev says moving to Lakeside was a great decision.  “Ysel and her team are the best, the location is convenient, clean, modern and the neighbors are great people,”
