AlliedBarton Security Services promoted Carol Johnson to President and chief operating officer.

“This additional executive role within our organization will allow for an even greater focus on the implementation of strategic plans and initiatives that support our clients’ evolving needs and the continued development of comprehensive security solutions,” said Bill Whitmore, AlliedBarton’s chairman and CEO, to whom Johnson reports.

Johnson is a graduate of Iowa–Grant High School in Livingston and is the daughter of Dale and Alice Vogel of Fennimore.

She will oversee operations and business development, create and execute on strategies that deliver an exceptional client experience, and help guide the organization’s growth.

Johnson joined AlliedBarton in 2010 as Senior Vice President, Client Experience, following a successful career in the staffing industry.

“The ability to work alongside Bill in the further development of security solutions and our leadership culture is an incredible opportunity,” said Johnson. “The leadership skills of security officers across the country are essential to creating and maintaining safe and secure environments.”

“Carol’s immersion in the security services industry has been instrumental in moving our organization forward,” said Whitmore. “Her acute understanding of our client’s needs for contracted personnel, and the impact we can make on their operations, well positions her to help lead our teams to deliver the highest quality standards of service every day, at every location.”

Johnson earned her MBA from Loyola University of Chicago and her bachelor’s degree from Northern Illinois University. Prior to joining AlliedBarton, Johnson held several successive roles at Kelly Services including Senior Vice President, Global Sales.
