Christine M. Vinson, President of Vinson Guard Service, Inc., was honored at the World Association of Detectives Annual Conference in New Delhi, India with the Vinson–Holmes Memorial Security Professional of the Year Award. The award honors members in the security field who have demonstrated excellence, leadership, and business acumen in an entrepreneurial endeavor. The award was renamed in 2015 prior to the passing of Past W.A.D. and VINSON President J.D. Vinson, Jr.
“It is humbling to be the first recipient of this award since it was renamed after my father and one of his best friends – both outstanding men in the security industry, ” said Christine Vinson. “It should be noted that this is not an award that recognizes me, but instead my entire team at VINSON. It is an honor when the recognition comes from my peers, whom I thank for their support over the past years.”
As an international association with global membership, the annual conference serves as an opportunity to conduct business meetings, elect officers, and attend educational seminars. The conference was attended by over 150 people representing 24 countries.
