Sandeep (Sunny) Kahlon
Early in my career, my skills, dedication and commitment led me to be promoted to a Team Lead Officer position, managing the Security Department after-hours. I went above and beyond our client's expectations and, in 2004, I was promoted to Shift Supervisor and again, in 2006, to Facility Supervisor. Creating and implementing new policies and procedures, recruitment, scheduling, training, parking, mentoring staff and internal investigations, to name a few, were some of my main duties.
My aspirations at that time were to become a Police Constable or a Correctional Officer. Little did I know that my career path would change in 2008 when the smaller company I worked for was acquired by Paladin Security Group. It was then that I realized I was finally part of a bigger and better vision, with more purpose, and my views towards the security industry changed immediately. I was no longer a diamond in the rough at a low priority facility and, instead, I was recognized for the knowledge, skills and attitude that I brought to a company that believes in promotion from within.
In 2008, I was promoted to a Field Manager position with Paladin and I never looked back! Not only did I have the opportunity to manage the busy Mobile Department, but I was entrusted with the responsibility of overseeing branch operations after-hours.
In 2010, I was again promoted, this time to Client Service Manager, where I had the chance to manage my own portfolio. A position I hold to this day, I have continued to grow within an organization that provides their employees with the tools they need to become true leaders. I am extremely grateful for the opportunities that have been afforded to me and I know that my prospects of advancing within one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies are endless.
