Pamela Hosein, CEO of Amalgamated Security Services Limited Profiled by ASIS International

Certification Profile: Pamela Hosein, CPP

By Steven Barnett 01 October 2019 Print Issue: October 2019

Pamela Hosein, CPPPamela Hosein, CPP, is CEO of Amalgamated Security Services Limited (ASSL), a full-service security provider offering guarding, secure transportation, investigations, monitoring and response, electronic security, and executive services. Based in Trinidad and Tobago, ASSL operates in seven Caribbean Islands with more than 5,000 employees.

Hosein first began working for ASSL at the age of 22. With a diploma in administrative management, she started out as an executive assistant to ASSL’s managing director. In the years that followed, she rose through the corporate ranks—eventually named CEO in 2016. She credits her success to her passion, training, perseverance, and mentors along the way.

In 2009, ASSL sought out globally recognized security certifications that would empower its management team and serve as a differentiator for ASSL’s expertise. Ultimately, the company decided on ASIS International’s board certifications—the Certified Protection Professional (CPP®), Professional Certified Investigator (PCI®), and Physical Security Professional (PSP®) designations.

ASSL mandated that all managers earn either the CPP, PCI, or PSP certification, simultaneously offering salary incentives for each certification and a lofty cash award for earning all three.

“ASSL provided in-house training for us to reach this goal,” Hosein shares. “In all, 70 managers earned certification, and eight became triple certified.”

Hosein chose to pursue the CPP certification to bolster her knowledge of the security function she managed.

“The CPP bridged some gaps for me,” she explains. “Where my MBA supported me as a management professional, my CPP gets me respect as a security professional. While studying for the exam, I became more knowledgeable in areas like physical security, site surveys, and due diligence—things that are directly applicable to my day-to-day job. Having earned my CPP, I was more confident in making security decisions and meeting with clients to talk security.”

She knew she had turned the corner one day when visiting with clients to negotiate a contract. On the way to the conference room, she was led through the client’s warehouse.

“I was able to point out security and safety risks as we walked and talked,” she reminisces. “It was a moment of pride when the client asked for a detailed risk assessment—totally outside the scope of our scheduled meeting!”

Hosein, who now serves as the chair of the ASIS International Trinidad and Tobago Chapter, has won several leadership awards throughout her career, most recently being named Empowered Woman of the Year for 2019 by the International Association of Top Professionals.

She recommends CPP certification to all organization executives—even if their portfolio primarily lies outside of security.

“As you climb the corporate ladder, make certain you understand asset protection,” she advises. “The CPP certification gives you a perspective bound to impact your everyday decisions. Top-level managers will find tremendous value in the ability to protect the organization and reduce risks because this is a fundamental responsibility of every senior manager of every business.”

Amalgamated Security Services Limited Sponsors Community Chest Ltd

Amalgamated Security proudly supported local non-profit organization 'Community Chest Ltd.' via financial contributions and ambulance services in their 2019 walkathon. Community chest's aim is to:

  • Assist the children of Trinidad and Tobago who have difficulty accessing treatment for cardiac disease and other life-threatening conditions. 
  • Assist in a wide array of interventional medicine, including orthopedic surgeries through the Princess Elizabeth Centre.

Funds were raised once more through an annual walkathon that was held around the Queen's Park Savannah on 24th September 2019, (Republic Day). The event was attended by ASSL Management namely the Chief Human Resource Officer Mr. Learie Hinds and Group Marketing Manager Mr. Robert Baur. The annual event tries to raise awareness for Community Chest's cause by completing one lap around the Queens Park Savannah. Children from various schools participated in creating a rainbow of CHILDREN HELPING CHILDREN. To ensure the safety of all participants the Archangel Ambulance Service was also on hand to render assistance where required. 

Amalgamated Security and Archangel Ambulance were glad to support Community Chest in their continued and crucial work and to help them achieve their charitable and fundraising goals.

Amalgamated Security Services Limited, Anthony Joseph Foundation Awards Fifty SEA Grants

Amalgamated Security Services Ltd awarded over 50 grants to children of it's employees who were successful in the 2019 SEA examinations.

The grant distribution was held at Amalgamated Security Centre, Chaguanas yesterday.

Proud parents turned out with their children to receive the $500 grants.

CEO Amalgamated Security Services Pamela Hosein offered words of advice to both students and parents, saying, "I'd like to say sometimes we tend to focus on careers and job titles, we have to be a little bit mindful of this because we put unnecessary pressure on the children. Don't focus on job titles, focus on what you like to do and make a career off of that. You are more likely to be happy. To everyone I hope you apply yourself and create a good balance among school family, friends and God."

The grant awardees were also given warnings and advice from past grant awardee Adaylia-Marie Beddoe.

"Undoubtedly the move from primary to secondary school is a major transition you will come across new faces, new friends, you have to understand your teachers and the volume of work increases significantly," Beddoe said. "You would meet new people with different personalities and different mindsets. Open you mind to new people embracing new experiences and a different school culture. I warn you do not judge people by the way they look, what they may possess, their financial status or if they're just simply different from you." Beddoe urged the new secondary schoolers.

The grant initiative was started in 2016 under the Anthony Joseph Foundation. The foundation was started in memory of ASSL employee Anthony Joseph, who was killed in the line of duty in 2015 and had worked for the company for 30 years. The aim was to support and assist the children of ASSL employees as they make the transition from primary to secondary school.

Since starting four years ago, the foundation has helped 200 children.
