OUR START: TSN was founded by Tegan Broadwater in early 2008. Tegan had been a Fort Worth Police Officer for 13 years. He had worked in patrol, the Gang Unit, the Cold Case Unit, and the Narcotics Unit. During his last few years on the force, Tegan worked a rare, deep undercover assignment where he managed to infiltrate the Texas Crips. As the primary undercover agent, Tegan was assigned to the FBI for the duration of the 2-year operation. In 2007, his case (Operation Fish Bowl) was nominated for the FBI's Case of the Year and Tegan was awarded Fort Worth Police Officer of the Year. His case was successful as 51 violent gang members were arrested (41 of which were sentenced federally) and 9 cold case murders were re-investigated. Despite this success, however, Tegan was taxed from the 2 years of 75-hour workweeks and longed for a new challenge.
In 2008, Tegan leveraged his investigative and entrepreneurial skills to launch Tactical Systems Network, LLC - a high-end security and investigations firm. At the time, his wife, Holli, was managing a private wealth individual's finances and businesses. Holli agreed to donate her time between jobs to ensure the business remained financially sound during the ever-volatile start-up period (which was particularly fortunate in light of the stock market crash later that same year!). Tegan and Holli shared a small 400-square-foot office space and Tegan worked all of the jobs that came in, from security guard to consultant to investigator. He worked days, nights and holidays. He created the essential business structure and authored processes between those shifts. Once he realized that he was unable to work multiple jobs at the same time, he began hiring talented and ambitious people to help. As TSN accrued its staff, Holli spent more and more time managing the finances and payroll. Sometime in 2011, Holli joined TSN full-time and poured into building this business alongside Tegan.
After 2 years in business, TSN broke through, leveraging great relationships and solid work to grow it's client base significantly. It was at this juncture that Tegan and Holli were able to actually pay themselves. By 2012, Holli was working full-time at TSN and the staff had grown to 40 employees. Managing a multi-million dollar business became the challenge as TSN continued to grow. Tegan only brought on clients that fit the TSN long-term vision of serving and protecting good people who execute business with good purpose. Those referrals were now multiplying and TSN was steadily growing. In 2016, Holli became a majority owner as her knowledge in the industry grew deeper and her financial discipline and care had saved TSN from disaster more than once.
Now, we are over 60 strong. Our concentration is on developing employees personally and professionally and serving clients and employees with a relational focus while methodically improving our processes to stay ahead of this modernizing industry.
