DEFENDERS Team

Strong Individuals Build Successful Teams

At DEFENDERS, we're training tomorrow's leaders, which means everyone-from our executive team to our newest sales reps-are valued and integral to our success. Combine talent, willpower, and resilience with the drive to learn, the ability to grow, and a little sense of humor, and you'll get our one-of-a-kind team.

Here's what some of our people have to say about being part of the DEFENDERS team:

"My favorite part of what I do is coaching. I am blessed to be part of a team that is open to learning and always wants to improve themselves. Recently, I bought my first home, so on the weekends my wife and I spend time working on projects like gardening, updating lighting fixtures, and building upon the electric and plumbing systems to make it our own. Being part of DEFENDERS is really all about improving yourself at home and at work."

Manager, Customer Technical Services

"The best part about working at DEFENDERS is that people genuinely live our core value of being humble servants. I organized a small, departmental service project to support children in foster care. We planned a bake sale fundraiser in hopes to raise $500. Other departments within Defenders heard about our project, and so many people volunteered that we needed to have multiple bake sale locations to accommodate everyone. The outcome included 3 bake sales across the Indianapolis campus! We raised over $6,000, built 40 bicycles, and packed 85 care packages. All of the proceeds went directly to local kids in foster care. None of this would have been possible without DEFENDERS truly believing in the value of service to others."

"6 years ago shortly after starting what I thought was just a job I had a really powerful conversation with one of our coaches that made me rethink my mindset personally and professionally and was the catalyst of my success here at Defenders. That conversation made me set goals, challenge myself and taking what I thought was “just another job” and making it a career."

-Esmirna Batta, Manager of Training

"I started 15 years ago as a technician I was told by [owner] Dave Lindsey that DEFENDERS was a place where an ordinary guy could become extraordinary, and I've never forgotten that. I set my goals high and have continued to grow as a leader. Today I am responsible for the lives of so many people and that is what drives me to succeed. If they are successful in life and work then I am, too. This is the byproduct of developing people around you."

-Rick Eastling, Regional Director of Field Services

"At DEFENDERS, we have so many training channels and mentors that have helped get me where I am today and am forever grateful. It is an honor to apply all that I have learned in our homes to make sure that "bad things don't happen to good people". By doing so, I treat every install as if they were my very own family and only offer them exactly what I would want my family to have if it was our home, nothing more nothing less"
