James E. Freeze
MG USA (Ret), Chairman
Advising our CEO and senior management team in the overall business approach is the Board of Directors, including key individuals from the security industry, Federal Law Enforcement, Military and Legislative communities. The Board of Directors also acts as a “proxy board,” which serves to separate Paragon from its overseas parent and allows us to leverage for the benefit of our US Government clients the economies of scale of a $9 Billion security firm, while at the same time precluding the parent organization from any substantive knowledge of Paragon’s work in the cleared or US government environments.
Paragon is able to meet the needs of our most sensitive clients with protected and highly complex security programs and rock bottom workers compensation rates. Paragon has the agility of a focused US Government security provider with the experience, infrastructure and financial capabilities of a 200,000 person security team.
