The company was founded by current President, Ron Schaefer, Lt Col USAF (Ret). Ron retired from the United States Air Force after 26 years as a military fighter pilot and commander with worldwide tactical experience to take a position with ARINC Engineering Services, LLC as a technology systems consultant. He was first tasked with the development of a pilot training systems program for the USAF. His duties quickly grew to include consultation on maintenance, technical training and operations programs, homeland security solutions, radio interoperability solutions, unmanned aerial systems program development, business modeling and business proposal development.
In 2006, having created a large network of subject matter experts and technology consultants, businessmen and financiers, "Shamal" as he is known in the USAF fighter pilot world, left ARINC to form his own company. Argent Technologies, LLC was formed in 2006 and has grown steadily now boasting a first class team of technology and business experts known throughout the private and public sectors.
