PASADENA - On a cool Thursday in Pasadena, Sam Gopinathan, 45, drove a senior citizen to a doctor's appointment.
The new owner of a private non-medical, in-home care franchise, ComForcare Senior Services in Pasadena, was simply going out of his way to add a personal touch for one of his clients.
"One thing I've realized is that retired people just really enjoy company and I really enjoy theirs," he said. "I have several caregivers on my staff but I decided to take my client personally."
TITLE: Franchise owner
BUSINESS: ComForcare Senior Services
ADDRESS: 1350 N. Altadena Drive, Suite B, Pasadena
SECRET OF SUCCESS: Lots of business experience and a desire to provide professional service with a personal touch
Things have changed considerably this past year for Gopinathan, who spent the first 22 years of his career as an executive for three Fortune 500 companies, including the Ford Motor Co.
Last September, Gopinathan's career in corporate America took a downturn when he was let go from his position as vice president of M-S Cash Drawer, a manufacturer of cash registers and point-of-sale systems based in Pasadena.
