AlliedBarton Security Services Appoints Richard Michau to Lead the Company's Chemical/Petrochemical Market Segment

KING OF PRUSSIA, PA--(Marketwire - March 3, 2008) - AlliedBarton Security Services, the industry's premier provider of highly trained security personnel, announces the appointment of Richard A. Michau, CPP, as Vice President of the Chemical/Petrochemical market segment. Michau joins AlliedBarton with more than 25 years of experience in the security services industry. Since the end of 2006, Michau was the owner and a critical infrastructure consultant with D&R Consultants, LLC, and prior to that he was with a national service provider for 10 years, and served as that company's President of the Nuclear Services Division from 2000 through 2006.

"As Federal regulations require that chemical and petrochemical industries take a critical look at the methodology in place to secure their facilities, it is crucial to have a leader with the experience and judgment that Richard Michau possesses," said Bill Whitmore, President and CEO, AlliedBarton Security Services.

"I am proud to be a member of the AlliedBarton team, and to work with our clients to assist them in recognizing, understanding and addressing the rigorous and evolving security requirements in the chemical and petrochemical industry," said Michau. "Along with the members of our Chemical Petrochemical Security Alliance (CPSA), AlliedBarton will continue to provide for the needs of our industry clients with high quality services and resources."

"AlliedBarton has a distinguished history of serving companies in the petrochemical and chemical sector with well-trained security officers and supervisory personnel that help ensure our client facilities are safer and more secure," adds Michau. "Federal regulations including the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS), Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA) and Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) demand comprehensive security programs which ensure the overall effectiveness of physical security measures including perimeter protection, access control, effective procedures and a well-prepared security force."

AlliedBarton is working to ensure highly sensitive sites are in compliance with CFATS and MTSA, which require the implementation of risk-based performance standards for the nation's high-risk chemical and petrochemical facilities.

Michau is a member of ASIS International and has served as Chair on the ASIS Utilities Security Council and as President of the Professional Certification Board. Michau received his BA degree from National-Louis University and is a graduate of the Chicago Police Academy and the National Crime Prevention Institute at the University of Louisville. He is also a licensed private investigator. Prior to entering the private sector, Michau served as a police officer in the Chicago metropolitan area.
