“When it comes to purpose don’t be boring. Get a purpose that you and your people will get behind.”
Ron Lovett is an entrepreneur and leader with a passion for change. He builds brands that challenge and disrupt their industries. Ron loves going back to the drawing board by creating companies with a purpose.
Always in pursuit of a smarter, better way, he relentlessly researches best and simple processes and is quick to execute. Ron also enjoys leveraging his best practices to provide consulting services to other businesses.
His private security company, Source Security & Investigations, aims to change the security industry. Passionate in his mission to develop the culture in his organization, Ron’s hands-on approach is key and that rock star culture is what sets Source Security apart in an otherwise tired, boring industry. Not only has this helped the company attract the best talent, but they have accomplished three times the industry average profits, and grown from a local Halifax-based company to over 1500 employees across Canada.
Ron is also partnered with Newfoundland-born comedian Shaun Majumder (This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Majumder Manor) to shake up the celeb endorsement industry through a company called CelebConnect. He is also the founding member of Entrepreneurs Organization (EO) Atlantic Canada. After serving as president, he is now membership chair for this chapter that has grown to 38 members since inception.
Over the years Ron has been recognized with many awards for the success of Source Security & Investigations and his leadership within the company, including the BDC Young Entrepreneur Award, Junior Chamber International Outstanding Young Person Award and Remy Martin Bold Five under 35. He was also a finalist for the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award and has been recognized five times by Atlantic Business Magazine’s Top 50 CEO Award.
