Our Director of Sprinkler Operations, Scott Santos is a second-generation sprinkler professional and has been in the fire and life safety industry since 1985 when he graduated high school. He started his journey fabricating pipe in the shop when he was 15 years old and a few years later moved into design where he found himself helping his dad design projects for VFS when Randy first opened his doors. As the saying goes, everything has certainly come full circle as he is now an integral member of our executive team where he leads our sprinkler department with integrity, passion, loyalty, leadership, coaching and cost-conscientiousness.
His favorite quote from Jeff Bezos
“I knew that if I failed, I wouldn’t regret that. But I knew the one thing I might regret is not trying”
This is perfectly exemplified in the fact that he completed his Bachelor’s degree in management at 47 years old and his Master’s in leadership at 50 from Azusa Pacific University. Not only does he serve our company as a leader, but he also serves his community around the world. He has been on several missionary trips to Mexico, Argentina, Rwanda and Kenya where he partners with local communities, builds relationships and spreads genuine faith and kindness. Money has never been a driving factor for Scott, a quality that he carries with pride. Instead, his family, culture and continued learning takes the front seat of his heart. If he is taking some time off from saving the world one missionary trip at a time, he’s just an average guy who enjoys watching sports on the couch, go figure!
