“I’ve been evolving everything to get to a point where the company will be able to be run by an individual other than myself.”BUSINESS OVERVIEW
Pyramid Imaging, founded in 2001, has a simple purpose: “To help organizations apply video analytics to solve problems.” To this end, Pyramid focuses on the distribution and integration of specialized cameras, as well as the creation of new imaging technology. Clients past and present include Apple, Microsoft, Mercedes-Benz, Medtronic, and the U.S. federal government, including the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Defense. Today, Pyramid’s 10-person team works with over 700 customers worldwide.
Last year founder and current President Rex Lee was forced to restructure his business: Often not in the office due to his long commute from Atlanta, and without a second-in-command, his business fell apart. “While the cat’s away, the mice will play,” Rex jokes today. From this experience, Rex learned the importance of finding employees he could trust. Finding the right people has been a source of success since.
Now Rex holds his current employees accountable through the processes he has created. Right from the beginning, he spent time cataloguing everything he did. “The goal is to create a system that can operate without me. I’ve been evolving everything to get to a point where the company will be able to be run by an individual other than myself.”
