“Priority One Security is committed to supporting our account base. Part of doing so is through controlled growth. We evaluate several acquisition opportunities each year, but only a handful fit our strategy,” said William Francis, president, Priority One Security, in a news release. “The Fleetwood Security acquisition strengthens our presence in the Atlanta market. It allows us to extend our support to existing clients, and the opportunity to pick up new customers, but most importantly, it’s an acquisition of talent.”
