RASF began in south Florida in 1989 as a consulting resource to Insurance industry Underwriters and Technology Officers. In the early 90’s, Harrison Reece (founder of RASF) formed a consortium to develop solutions for an industry which desparately needed a means of transmitting real-time images from remote locations, across limited bandwidth.This, in a time before the advent of digital cameras and Broadband, was no light endeavor. As a young innovator and aspiring technology integrator, Harrison assembled a partnership of talented and creative developers equal to the task. Solutions were engineered and the emergence of an alliance of professionals, some young and eager, some seasoned and sage, gave way to the idea that independent professionals could, and should, band together for the purpose of tackling real-world challenges in business and industry. Since that time RASF has practiced as a resource for strategy, function, and implementation of solutions in networking, web development, and integration of emerging technologies.
RASF moved it’s headquarters from the Tampa Bay area to Atlanta in 1996.

The true leader serves. Serves people. Serves their best interests, and in so doing will not always be popular, may not always impress. But because true leaders are motivated by loving concern rather than a desire for personal glory, they are willing to pay the price.
Eugene B. Habecker
In a world full of managers, yet starved for leadership, the mandate is to always think, act, manage, and teach as a leader… to be constantly and consciously aware that each conversation, presentation, problem, or confrontation is an opportunity to provide strong leadership; to foster leadership among peers and subordinates by recognition and support of their individual and particular strengths.
True leaders consistently develop and promote other leaders from the resources at their disposal.
I believe what I believe is what makes me what I am.
The manner in which I make decisions is guided and shaped by a pre-suppositional value set, which in turn, determines how I operate and interact on a daily basis… a predefined set of guidelines which provides me with the structure and the opportunity to excel.
What I believe is derived from what I know to be true. I know that certain immutable truths exist and that these truths have implications for the entire scope of my life – in business and in personal endeavors. God has endowed me with the freedom to make my own choices… and receive the consequences accordingly. I am not an automaton. Therefore I believe that if I chose to base my core principles and practices upon a foundational understanding of truth, I promote an environment of integrity and creativity in which to learn and grow. I believe that if I am faithful to maintain this core I will continue to grow and succeed.
Regardless of skill sets and certifications, personality type can be crucially determinate of any individual’s ability to thrive and be productive in a given environment.
The following is excerpted from “Please Understand Me II” by David Keirsey:
There are two sides to personality: One is temperament and the other is character. Temperament is a set of inclinations we are born with, while character is a set of habits we acquire as we grow and mature. Character is disposition, developed over a lifetime; temperament is predisposition, hardwired in from birth. Thus, for example, those of the Artisan temperament are predisposed - born - to impulsive action, those of the Guardian temperament to responsible service, those of the Idealist temperament to personal development, and those of the Rational temperament to objective analysis.
Harrison Reece’s type is “Rational”, subtype is “Architect”. See descriptions of these, and other temperament types here.
