CDS Consulting Co-op is pleased to announce that Paul Feiner has joined us as a consultant specializing in safety, security and loss prevention.
Food co-ops are known for upholding values of transparency and trust; that’s why co-op security issues must be handled with utmost care and professionalism. Preventing loss and theft is a constant challenge to retailers, yet it’s an area of operations that nobody likes to discuss and frequently gets neglected. The truth is, even one dishonest individual from in or outside an organization can substantially undermine profitability and store morale.
As community-owned businesses, co-ops have a responsibility to their owners to protect their shared assets from theft, fraud and shrink. Successful loss prevention starts with a clear mission; management support; employee attitude and training; creative use of technology and store resources; and best practices of responsibility and accountability. Keep costs down by minimizing losses and foster a stronger, more profitable business by establishing and instituting loss prevention procedures into daily operations.
Paul Feiner has nearly a decade of intensive, on-the-ground experience in the fast-paced loss prevention industry. He is committed to helping co-ops develop and institute proactive loss prevention initiatives to maximize workplace security and safety. Paul’s work with City Market/Onion River Co-op in Burlington, VT has resulted in a cutting-edge loss prevention, and safety and security program that rivals any in the midsized retail industry. He is certified in Loss Prevention (LPC) by the Loss Prevention Foundation, and since 2011 has been offering his skills and experience to the broader retail community by helping small businesses develop and institute proactive, professional loss prevention initiatives to mitigate loss and maximize safety and security.
In 2012, Paul teamed up with his brother Michael to create Power Play Assets Protection, LLC, combining their unique talents and experience to offer comprehensive loss prevention services and trainings to their clients. CDS Consulting Coop is pleased to partner with them for loss prevention services and training to our clients. Contact Paul and Mike to discuss safety, security and loss prevention for your co-op.
