Emergent BioSolutions recognized as best security organization

LANSING, Mich -- Security magazine has named Emergent BioSolutions to its "Security 500: The Biggest and Best Security Organizations." This is first time the magazine has honored Emergent.

"It's a tremendous honor and extremely important to our business to be recognized in this way," said Emergent CEO Fuad El-Hibri. "Our customers place a premium on our ability to demonstrate secure conditions for manufacturing our products."

Another publication, Security Director News, has named Emergent’s chief of protective services to its first-ever list of "20 Under 40." The magazine recognized Jeff Hauk for his potential to influence the security industry in the future.

"These individuals represent the top 20 security practitioners under 40 years of age,” said publication editor Rhianna Daniels. “They are the future of this industry."

A graduate of Central Michigan University and the executive protection academy R.L. Oatman and Associates, Hauk began his career with Emergent as a security officer.

"As security becomes a more integral part of a business, security professionals are being asked to know more about their company's business objectives than they ever have before," said Daniels. "These individuals were chosen with this in mind."
