She started with the company 12 years ago as an installation coordinator. Thomas said that her career at the company has been an "organic evolution. I've taken things on a piece at a time and they've all flowed together well." Security Systems News caught up with Thomas and asked her five questions. What brought you into the security industry? When I inter- viewed with John [Ray, owner, president and CEO of the company], I wasn't looking for any specific industry to be a part of, but he was passionate about Sonitrol. It does have a unique offering. He was enthusiastic and he had recently purchased the franchise. So I felt like I could be part of a ground-up operation. He was so enthused it was infectious. What do you like about where you live? I really like this area because it is a big enough city to have lots of opportunities, but also still a pretty close-knit business community. So, there's opportunity and there's avenue for growing the company you work with, but at the same time you have relationships that you can establish and maintain. I like that mid-sized city feel. What do you like to do outside of work? I have two children, so a lot of my spare time is devoted to their sports and other activities. But, I also enjoy playing volleyball, and have recently taken up running and enjoy that quite a bit. Do you have any pets? I do. I have a dog, a cat and a fish. I have a lab-mix, and I have no idea what the cat is, but he's a beautiful black cat. … We call him Batman; he's black with bright yellow eyes. What's something your coworkers might not know about you? I've been here so long, and our company is like a family, so they probably know a lot. They probably don't know that German was my first language. Although I am not fluent, I was born in Vienna, and lived there the first couple of years of my life —Spencer Ives Five Questions COMPANY (ticker) Price Previous 52-WK HIGH 52-WK LOW EPS The ADT Corp.
