Board of Governor Spotlight: State Systems, Inc.

The following is a feature in the Memphis Crossroads Magazine. Click here to view the issue in its entirety.

For the first time, we are highlighting a member of our newest level of membership – Board of Governors. The Board of Governors serves as an additional leadership base for our Chairman’s Circle and Board of Directors and serves in leadership roles on our industry councils. Today, we’re introducing you to Robert McBride, President and CEO of State Systems, Inc.

Tell us a little about your business.
State Systems Inc. sells, services and installs fire protection, security and structured cabling solutions for businesses across the Mid-South. Now in our 30th year, we have grown to be the largest provider in the area by meeting and often exceeding our customers’ expectations.

What is your company’s biggest success in the past year?
We continue to look for ways to grow our market share. In the past 12 months, we have acquired three businesses, opened offices in Little Rock and Nashville, and purchased a new, much larger facility in Memphis to accommodate our growing staff.

What are the benefits of being a Chamber member?
We certainly benefit from the business networking opportunities available through our Chamber membership. In turn, we believe that our support of the Chamber helps bring new businesses to the Memphis area, retain existing ones and enhance educational opportunities for the Memphis workforce.

What about Memphis makes you most excited at the moment?
There is a strong business climate in Memphis right now, and our city is blessed with a proactive government and business leaders who have a vision for the city and county. That’s exciting.
