Kyle Evans, founder of REDCON Solutions Group, which is a GrowFL 2017 Florida Companies to Watch honoree, is dedicated to helping veterans both through his business and through community involvement.
"I served seven years in the Army, then after being wounded in combat I was forced to retire," he said. "Following my retirement, I took a position with the Orlando Veterans Administration before deciding it was time to branch out on my own. I knew I wanted a business that would still show dedication to veterans and the military. About 60 percent of REDCON consists of veterans and I stay active throughout Central Florida as an advocate for veterans' issues."
REDCON provides security, risk management, and personnel support services to both the public and private sectors.
"REDCON is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business that employs veterans," Evans explained. "The leadership team is made up of veterans who are dedicated to military service men and women. We also provide services to both the government and commercial areas whereas others serve only one or the other. Were operate in four states outside of Florida so we have the capacity to serve outside our headquarters base."
Evans is proud that REDCON has been recognized as a GrowFL Company To Watch in 2017.
"It’s a monument to the hard work our team has put in and gives us critical exposure moving forward," he said.
Evans' advice for aspiring entrepreneurs is as concise as it is powerful. "Persistence," he said. "That's it. Don't give up."
