FSS gets new chief, funding
DALLAS - Security industry lender Financial Security Services said in late 2003 that it had partnered with a major bank for new lending opportunities for the security industry and appointed a new president and chief executive officer.
Through its new, long-term banking relationship with Bank One, FSS will be able to continue to provide Ã¢â‚¬Å“line of credit and term loan financing to independent alarm dealers,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Jeffrey Peiper, FSSÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new president and chief executive officer. Peiper said FSS is in a position to be able to market and expand its loan programs and billing and monitoring services in a difficult climate for attracting and retaining capital providers.
A former senior financial services industry executive, Peiper became a consultant to FSS in 2002 and was named president and CEO in 2003.
