We created Extreme Tactical Dynamics because there was a need for affordable emergency vehicle lights and accessories. When we entered the market, agencies, departments, and volunteers had a hard time accessing quality lights at low prices. Since 2005, we have worked hard to establish relationships with police, fire, and EMS all over the country, and to provide these first responders with affordable, high-quality options. Our success stems from our dedication to customers and helping people stay bright.
Chris - The Boss
Chris is the head honcho here. He oversees the day to day operations and has a passion for helping first responders who serve and protect communities across the country. He graduated from North Fort Myers High School, Edison State College, and the prestigious Sam Walton Business School. Chris started Extreme Tactical Dynamics in 2005 but has a long history in retail.
In 1992, Chris was a cart pusher for Walmart and eventually worked his way up to a store manager in 2000; at the age of 25. During his career at Walmart, Chris mentored other employees who now run their own stores. He also received several awards such as; most improved store, Store of the Year (twice), and eventually promoted to Intern District Manager for the West Coast of Florida in 2005. Shortly after his promotion, Chris left Walmart to start his own business.
In 2005, Chris was the recipient of the Jupiter, Florida Humanitarian of the Year Award for his efforts in providing hurricane relief after Hurricane Frances and Jean hit Palm Beach, Florida. In the same year, Chris also received an accommodation from Palm Beach County for his part in helping illiterate children gain the tools they needed to read.
In addition to overseeing the operations of ETD, Chris also spends 25 to 30 hours a week volunteering in non-profit organizations that focus on children. Through the years, he has served on a handful of boards, and today he serves on a Florida non-profit board of directors that focuses on helping children develop a passion to play sports. When Chris isn't at work, you can usually catch him at a local soccer field either enjoying the game or working with the kids.
