Crescent Guardian CEO Honored With Second "Woman of The Year" Award

Congratulations to Marian Pierre, CEO and founder of award winning Crescent Guardian, Inc., for being selected a 2012 Woman of The Year by New Orleans CityBusiness for the second time.

Long recognized for her leadership and community efforts, City Business named Ms. Pierre Woman of The Year in 2007 and most recently in 2012. In 2008 she was awarded the Parrin J. Mitchell Entrepreneur of the Year award. Under her leadership, CGI was also honored as New Orleans Small Business of the Year in 2000.

Started in 1999, Women of the Year recognizes 50 women from the New Orleans area who are innovative leaders making waves with their energy, ideas, achievements and commitment to excellence.

Ms. Pierre founded CGI in 1993 and built it to become the first woman-owned multi-million dollar professional security services firm in a three-state region. Over the last 19 years, the company has transformed from a small guard services company protecting local businesses to an advanced security firm with next-generation technology that secures critical infrastructure across the country, adding additional offices in Atlanta, Boston and Dallas. Numerous clients in Federal, State, Municipal, Commercial, Energy, and Critical Infrastructure now rely upon the company for services such as armed/unarmed guards, security consulting, program management, IP video surveillance, RFID tracking, asset management, video analytics, and more.

Prior to founding Crescent Guardian, Ms. Pierre had a successful career in New Orleans City government. Through her time working for the city she gained extensive knowledge and experience that helped her prepare for the rigors of entrepreneurship and being a leader. Throughout her professional career, she has been devoted to empowering women through politics, education, social involvement, and economics through an organization she founded, Women Organized Mobilized for Empowerment Now (W.O.M.E.N.)
