Twelve years ago Mary Strazzeri started Safety First with a staff of two, no contracts and a vision for a company that was built on integrity and hard work. Today, Safety First has 30 employees, each hand-selected by Mary herself, and a loyal client base that know they are with the best. “I credit everything to the people I work with,” says Mary, “I hire for character and build skill,” she adds. When asked what winning the Fastest Growing Company 2017 award means to her, she responded saying, “it is further recognition that we are doing what we should for our clients, we are providing them with the best service possible.” Mary left her previous job to start her own business, she overcame a male-dominated industry to rise to the top and she says she owes it all to her staff! Congratulations Safety First!
