Question Resurrection of SG?

Take a look at this post from the new CEO of Safarigard. Seems they changed ownership, and want to play with Rover owners again.

Good for those guys, hope it turns out well for them.

I have an unrelated question though. Why in companies with 1 or 2 people do folks list themselves as CEOs?

I was thinking the same thing. I figured he went to a cheap b-school and this is his entrepreneurial venture.

the email came from Mary. not sure if its the same Mary. the new policy is that they don't take payment until the item is packed and ready to ship.

It seems like a smart business move would have been to change the name with the new management.

Better yet...two college age guys run a handyman/painting side operation. One is listed as "Chairman" the other "CEO" on the rough scissor cut, smeared sheet of cards whipped out on some $85 ink jet printer.

I think a good step forward is to go into that Expo Portal thread I provided the link to, and PM the new owner letting him know your open issue and asking if he will honor/fulfill SG's responsibility now on it. Give him a chance to rectify the issues, before publicly assuming SG hasn't changed. If they still act the same after new management, then have at it, and let us know what happened.

I really did not want to add to this thread just yet but i will. Scott is the guy you want to talk to. He seems like the one that is brining Safari Gard back. He is the only one that I have talked to since the whole "Safari Gard is Back!" threads that have been popping up on different forums. With that begin said, he said my 2 year old 3-link was recently finished and he was going to ship it out this week.

Now I talked to him last week about this and he said i may have to pay for the shipping cost because he personally would ship it out because he said there was some problems with Safari Gard's management again.

I just gave Scott a call 5 minutes ago and a women picked and said the name of the company which isn't called Safari Gard. She said her name was Mary. Sounded a bit like the old Mary but with a less worried voice (as im sure she dealt with a handful of us yelling at her). She said the rest of the 3-link was being packed up and would be shipped out today, and she would give me a call back. I have heard this before, and have even gotten fake tracking number from UPS with no shipment, so I and you guys should take this with a grain of salt.

When (if) the 3-link gets in my hands you will hear back from me. Till then SG is still SG.

EDIT!
Mary called me back....please read that again. Mary... called me back. I gave her $60 to ship the 3-link, and she is emailing me a tracking number. We will see how this goes.

I tried to ask her some questions while i had her on the phone. She is the same Mary from SG. She said they used to do retail for Safari Gard, but her and Scott now run Sterling Auto or something like that. And she really likes working for Scott. Thats all I got.

Daniel- let us know if the tracking number is for real this time. As I said my brother is having a bumper made and it would be nice to know they actually are back to shipping their product.

Depending on the state you are incorporated in you have to designate a CEO for a legal filing. Some states make you go through the formalities even if you are a 1 person company, just so that you can maintain legal status as a corporation.

Then again sometimes people are just self-important.
