Founded in 1998 and headquartered in Newport KY, Linkology is an IT company operating in the Physical Security and Parking Access and Revenue Control markets. They have discovered ways of linking the wealth of data those systems can generate for improving efficiency and building bottom lines.
This company, consisting of 29 employees, is lead by President Rami Batshoun. The company prides itself as a people business. Bob Fricke, COO states,“No matter the technology, people are the most important part of our business. As technology development becomes more focused on specific needs, the pool of candidates to work with that specialized technology shrinks. Finding the right skill sets and values in the shrinking candidate pool becomes increasingly challenging and important”
Bob goes on to add that the most important lesson they have learned in business is that “It's always people first, whether it's your own employees or clients or vendors, it's all about people and how you treat them.”
When asked about other advice he would give to others starting out in business, Bob comments to “Hire for culture and talent, not just talent.”
Congratulations to Emerging 30 winner Linkology on their continued success!
