Operations
enough of an impact, no
matter how outrageous I
tried to be on media to be
noticed nationallym other
than being famous in CE Pro
for a month. (MAXSYSTEMS
was the cover story profi le
in CE Pro's December 2017
issue.) I have to tell you that
I loved the notoriety. "
So instead of focusing on
RMR, MAXSYSTEMS focused
on large custom projects.
That concentration was much
more rewarding to Angst.
" At the end of a project,
especially one where
we were able to do some
high-profi le stuff , nobody
was happier than I was to
hear people say in a casual
conversation, 'You did that?
It's totally, totally cool.' Well,
I was happier, " he says.
COVID-19 was initially a
blow to the company, but
then the demand skyrocketed.
" From March 2020 to
March 2021 was the worst
time we've ever had. But the
last few months have been
the best business we've
ever had. We did as much
business in 90 days than
we did in the previous eight
months. We're fi nally on the
road to being a much bigger
company. I will do what I
can to help them get there
and they'll make their own
choice, " he says.
What's the Next
Chapter?
If he had to do it all over
again, Angst says he would
not do anything diff erently.
" I had a wonderful time
and I can now hear my team
echoing my schtick and my
jokes about lighting systems,
money, checks ... all the
little things I say that I think
are cute. To hear them now
saying those things tells me I
have had an eff ect on them. I
wouldn't have done anything
diff erently, " he says.
So what's next for Max
" I get to be around for a
while and do what I want.
It's still been very emotional.
I'm wondering what happens
when I'm not 'Max at MAXSYSTEMS'
anymore, " says
Max Angst.
in this industry. There have
been little moments when
we are meeting a new
developer or a contractor,
Angst?
" Emotionally, well, what
will I do? I have no idea, " he
admits. " I'm going to be at
arm's reach for a year or two.
I have no doubt that Mark
can take it over, but if a client
would rather talk to Max, I'm
going to be around. I think
over the next year and a half,
the company is just going to
become known as Mark of
MARKSYSTEMS. " CE Pro
