2007 Spirit Award

anderson security news and articles

The 2007 Spirit of Enterprise Award honors outstanding companies that exemplify leadership, commitment, growth and community service.

Kimberly Anderson-Matich grew up around the security industry because her father was in the business. So it was only natural that she would someday start her own security business. She opened Anderson Security Agency in 1994 and has served as its President and CEO ever since.

The Phoenix agency had some trouble gaining traction, but Anderson-Matich persisted and demonstrated that her company would deliver what it promised. It has since grown from having two employees to more than 600. Its revenue has increased annually by as much as 25 percent and it has expanded into Las Vegas.

Ethical behavior is the backbone of Anderson Security’s business. Its employees are expected to observe the highest standards of integrity, dedication and respect to fellow employees, clients and citizens.

Skywatch & Segway

Skywatch

Review our state-of-the-art solar-operated mobile crime deterrent and surveillance unit (Sky Watch), which is available for remote sites without electricity. It elevates from absolute ground level to a second story “eye-level” elevation in just seconds.

Anderson Sky Watch is equipped with digitally recorded closed-circuit television cameras that can be monitored by our off-site command center, or by an Anderson Security Officer posted inside the unit. Sky Watch is an alternative to temporary security officer services for use in those areas not conducive to human staffing.

Sky Watch will provide your employees, visitors and customers with peace of mind while on your premises.


Segway

Security Operations entered a new era of motorized patrol recently by making a segue to the Segway. In November, Anderson Security Officers started using Segways: two-wheeled, self-balancing electric vehicles – to patrol.  This new innovative idea has become very beneficial for Operations and our Security Officers, says President and CEO Kimberly Anderson-Matich.  “Officer’s have the ability to cover more ground, and can respond quickly if there is an emergency.”  The electric Segways provide a sustainable solution to security as they use no gas, have no emissions and are easy to maintain. The vehicles typically run about eight hours on a charge.

Using the Segway, Officers are not limited to the street.  You can ride indoors; take into an elevator, in office buildings, or off-road.

Anderson Sky Watch, available for:

  • Special Events
  • Parking Lot Surveillance
  • Labor Disputes
  • Shopping Malls & Centers
  • Correctional Facilities
  • Healthcare Facilities
  • Industrial Complexes

Plan 1: Unit Only

Plan 2: Unit with use of Cameras

Family Tradition

about anderson security

Arizona entrepreneur H.P. Anderson Sr. realized his lifelong dream in 1954. That was the year he founded Continental Security Guards, a full-service security agency that blossomed into an industry giant and a model for other agencies across the country. Until his retirement in 1991, Anderson was instrumental in raising the bar for Arizona’s professional security industry.

Kimberly Anderson-Matich answered the same call her father had when she founded Anderson Security Agency, Ltd. in 1994. From early childhood, Matich had admired her father’s professional dedication and felt determined to continue what he had started. Today, Anderson Security is on the front lines of private security with its combination of innovative solutions, integration of the latest technologies and, above all, top-quality personnel.

Going Beyond the Call of Duty
From her first day at Anderson Security’s helm, Matich has set her sights far higher than the bare minimum. She has always surpassed industry standards, especially when it comes to the caliber and care of individuals assigned to protect her clients’ interests. While the state of Arizona requires just eight hours of training for security officers, Anderson Security takes its personnel through a comprehensive, 72-hour course that encompasses a whole spectrum of security issues. The agency also offers highly competitive pay and employment benefits to attract top-tier candidates, all of whom are meticulously screened. Anderson Security’s applicant review process is so stringent that only one in ten is invited to join its team.

Growing Stronger Every Year
Matich’s resolute leadership style is rivaled only by her business savvy. Perhaps that’s why she is now regarded as one of Arizona’s top female executives, a revered self-starter who has seen her company grow at the rate of 25 percent per year, with 2004 sales projected to exceed $15 million.

According to Matich, Anderson Security’s dramatic ascent is the product of its focus on exceptional quality. “The old image of the ‘night watchman’ just doesn’t cut it in today’s world,” she says. “As the role of private security becomes more important in society, security agencies have to respond to this change in demand. Customers require more of their security officers than ever before — both in terms of quality and breadth of capabilities. As always, we are determined to meet these challenges.”
