As of July 2012, the Marco Island Radio Shack took new ownership under a dynamic Father/Son Team. This Radio Shack is not your norm, Thomas and Derek Lang are changing the way the islanders can obtain their every need for almost all electronics from cell phones & wireless contracts, accessories, home theater and networks installations, trouble shooting of electronics, security systems and much more.
The Langs have been residents of Marco Island for over 7 years and have shown the community their support through various activities such as coaching sports, recently giving a flash drive to every student going back to school, sponsoring sports teams, and more. Thomas’ wife, Christine, is a local MICMS schoolteacher and they have a son Jason at the MICMS and daughter Emily who is in 10th grade AICE at Lely High School. Derek is a graduate from Ohio State with a solid background in Engineering & Technology with expertise on high-end security installations overseas. Thomas has a Masters degree from Case Western Reserve University and is a U.S. Army Veteran. Thomas was a Professor for the University of Miami teaching Computer Information Systems, and for the last 10 years has worked in Government Counter Terrorism and threat assessment and analysis throughout the Middle East. They now bring their wealth of knowledge to the community to make their Radio Shack business the area’s ONE STOP for all of your needs.
