TriStar Monitoring, LLC. was Co-Founded by Tim LeBlanc, a Veteran of the US Navy. After several years in sales, Tim landed in the security industry. After 41 years, Tim LeBlanc still has a deep passion for it. Tim started as a salesman and worked his way into installations, soon becoming manager of two alarm companies. In 1986, Tim took the position of Systems Director for the Pep Boys Corporation where he was in charge of Security for all locations. After 6 years, Tim left Pep Boys and returned to his true passion, the Security Industry. After consulting for several companies, Tim took a position with a central station as President. Tim spent the next 18 years growing the company. Tim decided it was time for him to start his own Central Station. So TriStar Monitoring was born. With the help of his friends, Tim picked a seasoned staff of industry professionals to ensure TriStar’s success. Tim’s goal is to offer the latest in technology and the best service possible. “My constant goal is Service with Integrity and Commitment.” -Tim LeBlanc
