Hidden Gems: Meet David Touchton of FSO Services

Today we’d like to introduce you to David Touchton, founder of FSO Services.

Hi David, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I was in the Army and served in Operation Enduring Freedom, deploying to the Middle East on September 9, 2001, just two days before the September 11 attack on our nation. I spent several years in the Army before receiving an honorable discharge due to an injury, and then I went to work in the private sector. My military experience was a good fit for companies that work with the Department of Defense. I held several positions of escalating responsibility before I made the leap and launched my own security company, which helps companies ensure the best security posture against today’s modern threats.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The unfortunate reality of our world is that there are bad apples who want to either steal information or find a way to do harm to the U.S. This means we must be at our best every day to protect the vital company and country information and facilities.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
FSO Services is a service-disabled, veteran-owned business. It provides industrial security services to companies who work with the Department of Defense. We provide help to our clients to ensure that critical, national security information is properly accessed, handled, and safeguarded so it does not fall into the hands of those who want to harm the U.S. We pride ourselves on being an everyday, go-to resource for our customers. They are often juggling tight deadlines and complex security regulations. Our goal is to help ensure security of people and information is handled so they can deliver the best product possible for the soldiers and sailors who need it to do their jobs.

Before we go, is there anything else you can share with us?
Our goal is to continue to grow the business and start an education and training program so that we can hire military veterans to join our team. Or alternatively, help them find positions in the industry with the skills we teach them. I owe much of my success to my business partner Josh and my wife Devin and children Robert, Riley and Mia.
