Ronald Fowlkes first interacted with products from First Spear when he was serving as a marine in the U.S Marine Corp. Despite the fact that he served in the marine and is a former leader in the SWAT group for the St. Louis Police Department, many who know Ronnie consider him as a teddy bear. Currently, Ronald Fowlkes is the Business Development Manager of Eagle Industries Unlimited. For a long time now, Ronnie has been involved with the developing and delivering gear of the best quality for departments of security. Long before he started working with FirstSpear group, he worked as a Military Products Sales and Business Development Manager for IWT. Ronnie Fowlkes serves the FirstSpear group as the Director of Business Development. He is tasked with coordinating with professionals from law enforcement and the military division. He is also required carry out demonstrations concerning the operation and business development. These demonstrations help to promote the marketing of products developed by FirstSpear group. Ronnie has always had a passion and interest of being in the marines even at a tender age. While in the military and also serving in the police force, he noticed that the equipment they were using was from FirstSpear. These were long lasting purely American made gear that fit well and was light in weight. Ronald Fowlkes has a clear line drawn between personal life and business. He begins his day by seeing off his children to school and then gets back to start off his work. The organization has a lot of international contracts, so Ronnie makes some phone calls early in the morning. At his office, he responds to emails and returns the phone messages. He then gets in touch with his team and is brought up to speed on open issues and activities. Ronnie is confident that his success is brought about by teamwork. The firm works closely with the Department Of Defence and the local state and law enforcement, and they can identify what their clients need. Furthermore, the users of their products often recommend the company to other clients. Ronnie is excited about the trend of laser cutting and new tube technology. This technology would help the firm a great deal as it is an industry with a lot of copycats hence the need to patent their products. Ronnie has a habit of writing down stuff, a skill he was taught in the Marines. He keeps a journal and tries to accomplish everything on it and if any work spills over it is scheduled for the first thing the next day. Ronnie is a firm believer in customer satisfaction as a key to successful business. The company has built valued ties and relationships with clients, and this has contributed significantly to his success. Ronnie recommends reading “Lone Survivor” by Marcus Luttrell as it gives insights on sacrifices made for our freedom. Ronald Fowlkes is a fan of sports and coaches the youth team for his kids. He also writes a blog about the National Hockey League. He has written how fighting in hockey matches has reduced dramatically over the past league years. Fighting during a hockey game was as a way to give the team energy and catalyze the momentum of the game especially after being scored a lot of goals.
