A letter from the President:

2023 marks Dynacom Inc.’s 45th year in business. While we celebrate this milestone, I also reflect on our past and what it took to survive and thrive in a competitive marketplace for so long.

Below is a collection of various thoughts and concepts we have used over the years to help guide us through the good and challenging times.

  • Growth = Change = Risk. Therefore, Growth = Risk. You must be willing to take some measured risks to make it.
  • Paralysis by analysis is a real thing. Yes, you need to be analytical in your decision-making process. However, over-analysis can often be a cover for fear of making the wrong decision.
  • Be decisive. When you make a decision, don’t look back. You will make some good decisions and some bad ones. The great golfer Jack Nicklaus once said, “It is better to make a confident swing with the wrong club than a non-confident swing with the right club.” Believe in yourself and what you are doing.
  • Dial in on what you do well and become great at it! In business, it is better to be great at one thing than average at many things.
  • Sooner or later, “good” companies become either “average” companies or “great” companies. Average companies fail. Great companies succeed. Don’t settle for being good!
  • Learn from your past, but don’t dwell on it. Today and each day after are the only ones that matter.
  • Make today count. Do something every day that is building your future.
  • Be ready to adapt. Employees come and go. Economies go up and down. Technology changes. And now, pandemics happen. 
  • Technology changes fast. If you need help understanding this technology, get someone on your team that does.
  • Systems and processes matter and should be a continual work in progress.
  • Have a plan. Without a plan, there is no direction. Without direction, you have chaos.
  • Having strong competition is a good thing. It forces us to improve, or we won’t be around long. Embrace this competition and learn from your competitors.
  • Things are seldom as good as they seem and rarely as bad as they may first appear.
  • Celebrate your successes, and then get back to work the next day!
  • Cashflow is king! Having money available allows you to take advantage of opportunities. Learn to save and avoid debt.
  • Have a passion for what you do. If you don’t have it, find it or find another profession.
  • Individually and as a company, I recognize that it is up to me if it is to be.

Over the past 45 years, many things have helped us get to where we are today. Of most significance are our employees, our customers, and our suppliers. Without the hard work and dedication we have received from our employees, our company would not be here today. Equally, we are incredibly appreciative of the confidence and willingness of our customers to work together with Dynacom, Inc. Lastly, having suppliers that have worked with us as a team is an absolute necessity.

Thank you to all who have helped us reach this milestone. Here is to another 45 years!
