Paladin Security recently announced the appointment of Tony York, CPP, CHPA, as Executive Vice-President for PalAmerican Security and Paladin Security.

York previously held leadership positions at Denver, Colo.-based HSS (formerly Hospital Shared Services Inc.) including CEO, Chief Operating Officer and Senior Vice President of Security. York first joined HSS in 1994. He is also the former President and Board Chair of the International Association for Healthcare Security and Safety (IAHSS), a long-standing member of its Council on Guidelines, and has co-authored two editions of “Hospital and Healthcare Security” with Paladin’s former Chief Operating Officer (COO) and now Senior Advisor, Don MacAlister.

“Tony will be a tremendous addition to the Paladin family, and I am really excited to have him come on board. His leadership and expertise have shaped the evolution of healthcare security as we know it, and we are very confident that he will make a tremendous impact by supporting our clients, our employees, and our industry leading healthcare security programs,” said Ashley Cooper, CEO of the Paladin Security Group of Companies, in a statement.

“There is a such a true and authentic focus on who really drives the success for the organization – everyone! ” said York of the Paladin organization. “The emphasis on the importance of every security officer, every shift supervisor, every site manager, every customer success manager, every member of the team working behind the scenes to make Paladin a great organization is evident.  Couple that with the mere fact the owners are the leadership team and they all work full-time in the business is a model I strongly believe in.  It is such a differentiator in the industry and will continue to drive success for the Paladin family of companies.”
