New York – The Northern Virginia Awards Program for local businesses has awarded Shdow Security for the Best of 2015 in the Electronic Security Businesses category. The ceremony took place on November 11 in Virginia.
This award is only given to businesses that provide exceptional products and services to clients – focusing on quality, achievements, competitive advantages and long-term value groupings. Shdow Security has also been nominated in 2015 by the Prince William Chamber of Commerce for the best small business award of the year.
Shdow Security is an electronic security business owned by Hicham Sbihi, a Moroccan-American who came to Northern Virginia at the age of 20 with an entrepreneurial drive that has helped to make his business thrive in a competitive market.
Hicham’s multiple talents in web development, programming and electronic circuitry have given him a competitive edge. His business acumen is shrewd while his affable personality shines in the course of all business and personal dealings. He is involved in politics as an elected board member for his community, making decisive actions to ensure the best for more than 3,000 members of his community.
“Honesty is truly the best policy, along with integrity and adhering to what people need in business. This also applies to politics at any level,” says Hicham.
Shdow Security specializes in video surveillance and access control. Clientele ranges from Fortune 500 companies, larger corporate clients, governmental departments, and Residential Solutions, Inc.
The wide scope of clientele gives Hicham the ability to implement innovative ideas and product enhancements. His experience in various job locations has led him to develop a keen sense of electronic security sales and installation knowledge that clients appreciate, especially since Northern Virginia is an educated consumer market. He is continuously looking for new products and improvements in order to provide clients with the best quality as well as to elevate his skills and exceed consumers’ expectations.
Recently, while pondering upon an issue concerning an upcoming project, Hicham was unable to find a product in the market that would satisfy the clients’ needs. Instead of giving up after an intensive product search, he proactively started developing his own product, which will be presented and marketed in the very near future.”This is an exciting time for Shdow Security,” he told Morocco World News.
“My dream for the business is to see it grow but not only in sales volume, although it has doubled this year. I know that we are helping other businesses and people; providing security is a rewarding job. Clients have told me how we have helped them save money and time as well as provide them with the proof needed for a criminal prosecution. When I know that clients are satisfied with the company and that I have helped them in their security needs, I feel a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction of my own. In business, there is nothing that can replace that feeling,” he added.
Hicham has also been approved to be part of the “Class Academy” online program. The latter is deemed one of the only four accredited training schools in the state of Virginia whose purpose is to provide classroom instruction and continued online training for the electronic security industry professionals. The online course has been noted by the department of Criminal Justice Services as the best informative course and has been very successful since its inception in mid-2015.
“Dedication to business is part of the economic backbone in the United States,” he said. “I don’t do business for a day, but for a lifetime,” he concludes.
