Bob Johannsen

Bob graduated from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo with a degree in engineering and enjoyed 20+ years of multiple engineering and management positions with General Motors, Safeway and FMC. At FMC he advanced his engineering career into several diverse management responsibilities, mostly including introduction of new technologies to manufacturing. This included the development of laser technology for cutting steel, robotic welding, high speed NC machining, 3D modeling design and CAD/CAM integration. In 1990 as FMC relocated their operation East, Bob decided to stay in California for his family and started an alarm company known as Allsafe Alarm, Inc. However, he was not satisfied with the fairly static technology of the alarm business and expanded the company by introducing related evolving home technologies.

By 2000, the company had grown significantly and was one of the larger local companies providing technology options to the building industry (mostly tract homes) and the custom home market. In 2000, Bob felt that the name of the company (Allsafe Alarm) no longer represented the direction or state of the business and changed the company name to Paradigm Integration, Inc. Bob is totally committed to providing customers with evolving home technologies and that shifting paradigms have resulted in the quest for “smarter and interactive” homes. And under Bob’s leadership Paradigm recognizes the shifting paradigms and has maintained a wide range of products and service to meet the home and business owner’s evolution with technology.

According to Bob, “the recent merge with Sound Cinema Integration melded two very similar organizations with slightly different client bases and allows for increased diversity and a cross pollination of products and services”.

Bob was born and raised in the Bay Area and enjoys time spent with his family, including his wife and 4 sons. In addition to being an avid Giants fan and cooking on his Big Green Egg (BBQ), he has coached Little League Baseball for many years and has enjoyed watching his sons play many sports including baseball, rugby, water polo, swimming and golf.

 

Kerry Blessing

Kerry began her career over 37 years ago on the sales floor of a Bay Area hi-fi store. She went on to become co-owner of one of the country’s most prestigious and respected regional chains, San Francisco Stereo & Theater Systems. She shepherded S.F. Stereo through the period of greatest technological change since the advent of recorded sound: the shift from analog to digital (vinyl to CD), the dawn of home theater equipment and technology, the rise of the personal computer and the resulting explosion in integration technology. During this period of change, Kerry built a staff of dedicated experts, but always kept them focused on the customer. She went on to form Sound Cinema Integration in the same mold: technology in service of the customer’s dreams. Now with Paradigm she see great opportunity to continue that legacy.

“I’m a nut for music, for movies and gadgets,” Kerry admits. “I get as excited as anyone about the latest cool piece of gear. But I use these technologies in my own home, and I know how important it is to match technology to lifestyle.”

Kerry is a lifelong resident of California, a wine collector and fan of the S.F. Giants. She is a former columnist for “Builder/Architect,” where she published a column for the building trade on integrating home entertainment technology into home design and construction.
