Hope Yates joined the company in 1990 and is currently
a Branch Manager in Kalamazoo, MI. Hope was interested in becoming a police officer to serve the public, but then changed gears and decided to join Securitas USA. In her 26 years with the company, she has taken all training courses that have been offered to her. “I started as a security officer and have held many positions, including STS manager, scheduling manager and field service manager. I feel I have experience in many areas that benefit me as a branch manager.” In her current role, she has financial responsibility for an 8,500+ HPW office, customer and employee satisfaction, and sales.

Yates has remained in the security profession  because she values the opportunity to develop solutions to the challenges she faces. “I have been through three mergers
- finally becoming Securitas. Each time the company has grown and become more challenging. I love the security field, the work I do and the people with whom I work.”
