Our Founder – Dave Lindsey

Dave Lindsey is a business executive, successful entrepreneur, and influential leader. He is the Founder and Chairman of DEFENDERS, a fast-growth company that is the largest home security services dealer in the nation. Dave and his wife Jessica have three children, David, Maggie and Jackie Ray. Dave and his family are very involved in the community through their participation with Big Brothers Big Sisters, the National Christian Foundation, YPO Christian Fellowship Network, YWAM, Homes of Hope and many other nonprofits.

The Super Service Challenge began in 2011 at Defenders when the leadership team incentivised employees to serve via a contest. Defenders gave the employees the opportunity to serve any nonprofit they wanted, then encouraged them to share about the experience via a short video. Employees voted on the videos, and the winners were awarded funding. The result was nothing short of transformational. This experience inspired Dave to make the Challenge available to everyone in the hopes of spreading organizational transformation through service across the nation.
