MCLEAN, Va., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ACADEMI, a provider of assessment, training and protective services to both the federal government and corporate clients, has been honored by the National Law Journal with the prestigious Corporate Compliance Office of the Year Award. The award recognizes excellence in corporate compliance by in-house counsel in the Washington Metropolitan Area.
"ACADEMI is honored and proud to have been recognized by ALM, The National Law Journal & Legal Times as the Corporate Compliance Office of The Year," said Suzanne Folsom, General Counsel of ACADEMI. "Our selection is indicative that through the focus on building a corporate culture of compliance and integrity, a company is never permanently encumbered by the legacy of the past."
The niche security services company was created in 1997 as a premiere provider of training and protective services in high-threat environments. The company was later purchased by a group of private investors who immediately set out to build a more compliant, transparent and accountable business structure based on those core competencies.
ACADEMI has offices in McLean, VA, with training facilities in both San Diego and Salem, CT, as well as a flagship 7,000 acre facility located in Moyock, North Carolina.
