Protection Strategies Inc., which is headquartered in Oak Ridge, has announced that former President and Chief Operating Officer Sean P. Williams is now the majority owner and chief executive officer of the company. Bobby Beaty, who acquired ownership of the company in 2012, will remain a minority partner in the firm and acting in an executive advisory role while taking partial retirement, a press release said.
“Not only do Sean and I share the same vision of PSI, Sean will help ensure that we maintain the values, standards, and relationships of the past while taking the company into the future,” Beaty said.
PSI was founded in 1998, and since that time, the company has added new services and expanded its scope of work throughout the country by specializing in integrated security solutions (cyber, physical, personnel, information, and communications), and high-threat asset protection including special nuclear materials (SNR) and specialized support services, the press release said.
Today, PSI has grown into a company with eight prime federal contracts and various subcontracts with clients that include the National Nuclear Security Administration, U.S. Department of Energy, United States Coast Guard, Department of Defense, Department of State, Health and Human Services, Environmental Protective Agency, the Tennessee Valley Authority, Western Area Power Authority, Bonneville Power Association, state and local governments, and large commercial entities within the United States and abroad.
As a service-disabled veteran owner, Williams will be able to position PSI to participate in the Small Business Administration’s Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) program, the press release said.
“I am humbled by this opportunity to lead such a fine organization,” Williams said in the press release. “PSI is blessed to have some of the greatest people in the industry—people who make us successful every day. We have an exciting opportunity to build on our long and distinguished history, both as a partner to our customers and to our community.”
