Boyd & Associates is proud to introduce our Quarterly Employee Spotlight. We hope you enjoy this months feature on our Senior Tech/Project Manager, David Tijerina.
David Tijerina has been in the security industry since 1982. After finishing his education, he returned to attend Los Angeles Trade School / Skill Centers for an additional four-year training program being certified in electronic theory and AC/DC residential wiring. He has since then worked in most facets of the security industry. During this time, he decided to return to night school and received his teaching credential for the Los Angeles School District and taught at the same trade school he once attended. David assisted students with current and relevant learning, work programs and curriculum. In addition to that, he also assisted students with job marketing skills, critical thinking and job placements. In addition to this David enjoys reading about history, art and archery.
As Senior Tech/Project Manager for Boyd & Associates, his current position is to streamline team skill sets and efficiencies.
We asked David:
What is the best piece of advice that somebody ever gave to you?
Best advice ever received was “No one sees your intentions, they only see your actions.” I do my best in my personal life and at work to follow this with perseverance.
What’s a goal that you have for yourself that you want to accomplish in the next year?
The goal I would like to accomplish by year end is an on-going and continued shared cross training within our team at Boyd to provide continued quality service.
Where is the best place you’ve traveled to and why?
It was definitely Hawaii, my wife and I spent two weeks on the island of Maui for our honeymoon. We returned 10 years later for our anniversary with our two lovely daughters Natalie and Jacqueline.

The best thing about working with Boyd – operating as a family owned business which allows our team to offer a much more personal approach. We strive to give our best through teamwork, product knowledge and being proactive, while also giving back to local communities. Leaving a lasting footprint and impression for all, that is what I enjoy the most while working at Boyd & Associates.
Top three life highlights?
1. Finding my life partner, my wife.
2. Birth of my two daughters and being their father.
3. Receiving my teaching credential with LAUSD teaching an electronic curriculum and giving back to the community, along with loving the work I do.
What is on your bucket list?
Going to Italy with my wife.
What is the one thing, you can’t live without?
Family and friends.
What is one thing you have learned during this Covid-19 pandemic?
