CEO AND FOUNDER JP VALA
Growing up in the Okanagan was a blessing to say the least.
Graduating from South Okanagan Secondary School, JP was off to a great start and headed into the cabling industry. He gained extensive knowledge working in Alberta for a cable company servicing over 10 towns in the south-central region. Trouble shooting problems and technical issues became a passion for JP. After marrying his wife, Marnee Vala, the Okanagan was calling them home. He transferred with-in the cable company back to his home town with high hopes of a new career, but after just one year, his path lead him to other opportunity's in the underground/viticulture industry, starting a successful business with his brother founding Okanagan Underground Services.
This new path gave him the management skills and work ethic he knows today.
When an opportunity from the cabling industry came knocking, JP and his wife decided to take a leap of faith, get a loan and start a new company. Visual Telecom Solutions Ltd. was founded in 2010, and turned in to a successful turn key contracting company for the cabling and security industry that locals trusted and recognize today. The playing field was full of new adventures and the digital era was exploding leading the path of interest to Security! The Security market was missing that local touch and was in high demand for a locally based business rather then outreaching to Penticton or Kelowna. As successful as Visual Telecom Solutions was, it didn't say "Security", so ...
Strike Alarms and Security Ltd. was born!
