At the end of the year Glen Hill decided to jump on the retirement train along with semi-retired partner, Tim Corby. Glen sold his interest in Current Concepts to long-time employee and now, majority shareholder, Eric Haas. Starting January 2019, Haas took over as President of Current Concepts.
Haas is going to make some twenty-first century improvements in Current Concepts; enabling the company to not only sell, but also monitor security systems. In addition, Haas hopes to expand the business on line; selling non-protected products on Current Concepts’ website in the near future. In addition, Haas has reached out to builders in the Lehigh Valley to get smart home automation into entry level homes, making smart homes affordable to the masses.
