IRVINE, Calif. — Security and facility services company Allied Universal recently announced that client services, security operations and account management regional manager Frances Ruban received the Patriot Employer award from the Office of the Secretary of Defense – Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR).

The Patriot Employer award recognizes Ruban – who works at the company’s New York City branch office – for her support of an employee who is currently serving in the National Guard.

“I am proud to receive this award and work for a company that values the sacrifice and service made by members of the National Guard and military reservists,” says Ruban in the company announcement. “Service to others is at the forefront of what we do at Allied Universal, and we will continue to go above and beyond for these men and women, just as they do for our country.”

Why Ruban Won the Patriot Employer Award

Ruban was nominated by Allied Universal employee Chris Schemer, a certified protection officer who has worked for the company since 2013 and is currently overseas on deployment with the United States Army. Due to Schemer’s deployment, Ruban was presented with her award by Gene Westmoreland from the Department of Defense.

“The support of Allied Universal and its employees makes all the difference for our service members, particularly prior to deployment,” says Westmoreland in the announcement. “Frances ironed out details in a timely matter and went the extra mile for Chris so that his family would have the proper financial support prior to his deployment.

“Her actions exemplify the supportive and understanding culture that Allied Universal has developed as one of the largest employers of servicemen and servicewomen in our great country,” he says.
