It was January 1993 that Security Engineers, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Alabama. Shortly thereafter, the owners and Board of Directors called upon Don Bottom to join the organization as Chairman. Don’s first objective was to build a unique management team who would focus on and strive toward the goals and mission statement designed by the Board.
Today, we celebrate our 25th Anniversary and the original management team continues to oversee and guide the team who regularly consults with customers. The Security Engineers’ team has certainly grown over the years with the addition of many clients. However, our senior management remains one of the most tenured and qualified in the industry.
This team’s committed effort has brought about a steady and continued growth. Security Engineers’ first year providing quality service out of the Birmingham Operation Center but now provides the same quality service out of thirteen operational centers across twelve states; Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.
With growth has come recognition and with recognition comes leadership responsibilities, which we gladly accept. We strive to set an example and positively impact the image of the Professional Security Officer. Early in our process, Security Engineers made a decision to control growth to a level that would ensure quality of service was never jeopardized. It remains our firm belief that experienced local management is the best path to maintaining consistent, high-quality service. Therefore, the development of a new operation center is contingent on recruitment and development of a strong, local operation team.
