Peterson Heads from Florida to Central Wisconsin to Join H&S

Originally from Central Wisconsin, Ross Peterson lived in Northwest Florida on the Gulf Coast. The Gulf Coast area was a vacation spot when he was younger and he decided to move to the area after finishing college. While things were going well in Florida, he had an opportunity to move back to the Stevens Point area to be closer with family.

“I saw an advertisement for an open position with H&S Protection. I remember hearing great things about the company and knew that I would like this line of work. I have been with H&S Protection since 2015. Being a smaller company, the owners and employees treat me like a person and not a number, which makes me feel that I made the right decision by joining H&S’s team,” he observed.


Before H&S, Ross worked in various physical security-type jobs, with his last being at a large 43-acre condominium resort in northwest Florida. He also worked in loss prevention/asset protection, protecting the property of business owners.

“I work as an installer and also complete service to existing systems. I like the variety of systems that we work with and customers to make that happen. With my previous background being in physical security, I like to understand the customers’ needs on specific security devices and provide my input on best devices to use and placement of them. Continuing education provided by H&S’s various suppliers/vendors and ESA (Electronic Security Association) is very important in this fast-paced industry and I enjoy learning new things to apply to my position,” he said

“Taylor, my girlfriend of 5 years, is very supportive of my job as sometimes I work on furthering my knowledge of systems at home. We purchased a home in Plover (15 minutes from the Stevens Point Office) together in 2017 and have a small dog named Nya. My parents live close by in Plover, and I have a brother in Minneapolis,” Peterson said.

During his spare time, Ross enjoys spending time with family, going back to the gulf coast and being on the water, fishing, working on vehicles and enjoying life as it comes.

“H&S Protection Systems can improve your residence or business by skillfully designing a system that meets and exceeds your needs with top notch support and service with a local feel,” he observed.
