“The Loss Prevention Foundation Board is comprised of many great leaders in the industry. We welcome Paul as a dynamic thought leader which will continue to grow our Board with his skill set,” said Frank Johns, LPC, chairman of The Loss Prevention Foundation. “With the goal of education and certifying Loss Prevention executives through the LPC and LPQ certification programs, the Foundation strives to help elevate the Loss Prevention professional as a leader in the retail industry.
