Say Hello to our new CEO – Zuly Gonzalez

Mon, Mar 3, 2014

If you have ever met or talked to my cofounder Zuly Gonzalez, you will know she never fails to impress. She has been doing a lot of public speaking for our company, she talks to customers, she coordinates sales, pilots, and partnerships, and she keeps us in the news. Zuly Gonzalez has become the face of the Light Point Security.

I have decided to step down as the official CEO of Light Point Security, and name Zuly Gonzalez as the new CEO. Zuly has been performing above and beyond as our COO, so if she keeps doing what she has been, she will be a terrific CEO.
