SHEA DEGAN, Founder & CEO, 88 Tactical

Topic: Growing a Business from the Ground Up; From Small Business to Nationwide Franchise

What are the differences between an entrepreneur and a business owner? Why is it important to understand these differences? 88 Tactical Founder and CEO, Shea Degan, was born and raised in Nebraska. Shea will discuss his experience as an entrepreneur and the process of growing a small business into a nationwide franchise.

In 2003, Shea used his Criminal Justice education and years of law enforcement experience to create Signal 88 Security. Under his innovative leadership, Signal 88 Security grew into a cutting-edge security company that encompassed over 140 franchise locations around the country, and employed more than 3000 people. In 2013, Shea recognized the need for a change in the training industry standard. Ready for a new challenge, he sold his other companies and focused on growing 88 Tactical into an elite training organization for law enforcement, military personnel and civilians.

In addition to his duties as 88 Tactical’s CEO, Shea continues to build on his twenty years of training and instruction in Mixed Martial Arts, and holds a position on his local Police Department. When he’s not working or training, Shea enjoys spending time relaxing with his wife and two children on their farm outside of Omaha.
