Eclipse Celebrates 10 Years of Staffing

Eclipse is so proud to be celebrating 10 years in the staffing industry! Back in 2011, Eclipse Staffing & Security was established on August 31st as a general staffing company by our founder and CEO, Michelle Coy. Since then, we’ve also become a licensed security guard provider to better accommodate staffing needs across central Indiana.


Eclipse is proud to employ a diverse workforce who is dedicated to providing a great staffing experience for our clients. Though we specialize in placing security professionals, we partner with a variety of businesses in multiple industries. (Learn more about our services here.)

This year as Eclipse celebrates one decade in the staffing industry, we wanted to sit down with our founder Michelle Coy for a Q+A to get some more background on how Eclipse came to be. Read on below.


Q+A with Founder of Eclipse Security & Staffing, Michelle Coy


Q: Once you realized you wanted to start Eclipse, what was it like to go through the process of forming the company? A: I was blessed to have mentors that showed me the way.


Q: Once the company was fully formed, was it just you working or were there other people? A. It was just me grinding until I hired my first flagger.


Q: Do you remember what your first order was for? A: It took me 45 days to get my first order. Truly blessed that Jose from Interpark Garage gave me a chance on a Colts game – and I still work with him today.


Q: During the early years of Eclipse, what were some of the challenges you faced? What were some of the successes? A: Controlling workmen’s comp cost was a challenge with unforeseen injuries that made me change my focus on the type of work I was staffing. It’s like having a speeding ticket on your record for 3 years and your premiums are expensive. Adding a new client gives an unbelievable feeling of success. Even the small jobs remind me of why I got into this business. I helped someone with an issue, and I gave a solution to the problem whether it was securing a job or relief to a hiring manager that a job was filled.


Q: What do you see for the future of Eclipse? A: Eclipse has endless possibilities and I’m looking forward to the next 10 years. Watching Eclipse grow and open doors for folks looking for a career in security and events.


Q: What does it mean to you to celebrate Eclipse’s 10 year anniversary: A: I still can’t believe 10 years has gone by. I still remember sitting in a restaurant to use their internet since I didn’t have internet at home to complete my WBE certifications and security guard license applications. I truly love seeing people enjoy working for Eclipse and being part of a great company.


Everyone at Eclipse is so proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish in the last 10 years. We want to sincerely thank all the hard-working staffing professionals and dedicated clients who helped us get here.
