Hillard Heintze Selected as Finalist for Outstanding Security Consultant at the 2019 U.S. Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPA)

Today’s Announcement Comes a Year after Hillard Heintze was Named Winner of the 2018 U.S. OSPA Award for “Outstanding Security Training Initiative”

CHICAGO, IL – August 14, 2019 – Hillard Heintze has been designated a finalist in the award category for “Outstanding Security Consultant” by the judging committee for the 2019 Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs). For the last four years, the OSPAs have recognized companies and individuals across the security sector who demonstrate outstanding performance. In 2018, Hillard Heintze earned the U.S. OSPA for “Outstanding Security Training Initiative” for its training curriculum and program on workplace violence prevention and behavioral threat assessment for three organizational audiences: the general workforce, managers and supervisors, and internal Threat Assessment Team (TAT) members.

“We greatly appreciate the recognition the OSPAs bring to our industry,” says Hillard Heintze CEO and founder and Jensen Hughes Global Security Risk Management President Arnette Heintze. “Protecting what matters for organizations and individuals has always been a noble and honorable mission. But today, it’s also a critical challenge that requires careful integration across personnel, processes and technologies that are constantly changing. Whether we win again this year or another team does, the focus that the OSPAs bring to our collective goals as an industry helps elevate standards and demand excellence from all firms and teams who take pride and care, as we do, in the integrity of their client services.”

The criteria for these awards are based on extensive research on key factors that contribute to and characterize outstanding performance. The OSPAs are administered in collaboration with security associations and groups across the world. Winners of the 2019 awards will be announced on September 9th at GSX 2019 during an awards reception, which will take place in the Grand Ballroom at McCormick Place in Chicago.

“It’s exciting for all of us at Jensen Hughes to have Hillard Heintze selected as a finalist once again by the OSPAs,” says Jensen Hughes CEO Paul Orzeske. “Our success stems from a consistent focus on providing our clients with exceptional specialty engineering and consulting services and expanding our capabilities to meet their growing needs. Security plays a vital role because innovation, excellence and value – elements at the core of this OSPA award category – allow us to solve clients’ challenges holistically across a spectrum of risk from fire and life safety to security and forensics.”
