Growing up, my father, Jerry Singerman, owned a men’s clothing store, Country Fair, which provided the New Orleans area with the latest looks in casual wear. As you might have guessed, he gave me my first job. Sandwiched between learning what color suit was best for a job interview, and the difference between a sports coat and dinner jacket, dad gave me my first business lessons. Those lessons, about treating employees and customers with respect, and taking the time to do each job to the best of my ability, are ones I have carried with me to this day, in my current business, REDCON1. As you may have guessed, the name and military theme of the company is directly inspired by my grandfathers.
