Anyone know anything about the ownership of this operation?
I just spent quite a while digging around on the Bulletproof web site and trying to figure out who exactly they are.
This is hilarious.
Their CEO is named Tom Parrella, who gives his Bulletproof business address as 8341 E. Gelding Dr., Scottsdale, AZ 85260. (He's been interviewed by WI media already, so apparently he exists.)
Trying to find more on that person at that address, I find this:http://www.dprrealty.com/site/354049
OK, that goes to DPR Realty of Scottsdale Arizona. More precisely, 8341 E. Gelding Dr., Scottsdale, AZ.
From the DPR web page linked above, a cut-and-pasted quote:
In founding DPR REALTY, our mission was to build a leading residential real estate company that was recognized not for the magnitude of its holdings throughout the community, but rather its extraordinary commitment representing our clients buying and selling their homes, investments, and dreams.
....Our mission is to generate that view into a tangible difference for our clients. Anything less is unacceptable. Tom Parrella-Principal.
The guy is a realtor.
What the hell is going on here? A Florida mining company wants to hire top-drawer professional security for a job site and they wind up with an outfit run by some Arizona realtor?
This is fishy.
If you do a google search on "Tom Parrella" you find that for a big executive he spends an awful lot of time on business networking sites.
TPM found some of the same stuff on Parrella a day or two ago:http://newswithtags.com/Art/editors-tal ... d86yXZes5Y
