Paradigm Security Services, Inc. Named as a Finalist for Gwinnett Chamber Award

Gwinnett County (METRO ATLANTA) GA – October 23, 2020 – The Gwinnett Chamber Small Business Awards will showcase those that dare to start, sustain and succeed and the community that supports them. Recognized as an industry leader, Paradigm Security Services, Inc. is a Finalist in the Small Business Award category.  

Paradigm Security Services was deemed one of many essential businesses during the “shelter-in-place” orders issued in March 2020. But with this designation came increased responsibility. Paradigm has been committed to our clients and community since 2006. But they are now committed to additional priorities with their full-on approach pf “boots on the ground and an eye in the sky."

Paradigm’s president and CEO, Rick Strawn, explained, "Since mid-March 2020, Paradigm focused on stability and safety for our clients and our employees. Paradigm maintained its stability by investing in higher levels of management leaders and hiring more front line Officers. This approach bolstered our ability to protect and secure additional client assets and their employees within strategic industries. All the while, Paradigm is making certain their own employees can work in safe and secure environments."

“It’s always an honor to be recognized by your peers and community leaders. We are grateful to be named a Finalist in the Gwinnett Chamber’s award program along with many other small businesses,” Strawn added.

“At the Gwinnett Chamber, we believe small business is big business,” said Nick Masino, President & CEO, Gwinnett Chamber and Partnership Gwinnett. “We understand that entrepreneurs are the engines of our economy and we are excited to celebrate their contributions.”

  • Community Contributor Award
  • Culture Creator Award
  • Emerging Entrepreneur Award
  • Founder Award
  • Launch Award
