What happens when three Pelco ex-pats go into business?


They form a company called Clovis Associates. Clovis, for anyone who doesn't know, is the California town where Pelco HQ is located.

Clovis Associates is the brainchild of well-known former Pelco executives: Dave Smith, Joe Olmstead and Bill Arbuckle.

It's a consulting operation that offers the benefit of Smith, Olmstead and Arbuckle's experience to  "developers, manufacturers and investors." Here's a sampling of what the trio will provide: "objective business and product evaluation" to investors; strategic business development advice; planning and measuring the effect of your marketing strategies; product development assistance; and evaluation and advice about operations.

Here's a link to the Clovis Associates web site.
