LP People on the Move: June 2019

Professional advancement and building a successful loss prevention career can mean many things to many different people. For some individuals, it may mean reaching a top leadership position at a particular company. Some aspire to be the best at a particular skill or discipline, building a base of knowledge and expertise that sets them apart from the rest. For others, it may involve gaining experience in multiple professional fields in order to establish a versatile role. Still others simply want the recognition that comes with reaching a particular level of performance and the security that it provides.

There are many different ways to evaluate our career vision and professional aspirations. But what is most important is that we find the path that fits us best. Whatever our professional goals and aspirations might be; whatever skills and experiences have helped forge our personal loss prevention career path, we have to find and seize the opportunities to learn, grow, and progress.

All of us throughout the loss prevention community are proud of the accomplishments of those that have worked hard and earned a new place along the loss prevention career path. Please join us in congratulating the following individuals on their recent career moves and promotions.
