Summit Security Services, Inc., a leading security and investigative services provider, will mark the 40th anniversary of its founding this month.

In four decades, Summit has transformed itself from a local New York City-based firm to one of the largest security and investigative services firms in the U.S., offering a broad array of security, investigative, background screening, aviation security, executive protection, and due diligence services to Fortune 500 companies, top universities, major airlines and public agencies.

Established in 1976, Summit is a third-generation, family-owned, New York business founded and led for over two-and-a-half decades by the late Richard N. Auletta, a highly decorated New York City Police Department Detective   known for its industry leadership, client responsiveness, and extensive resources, employing 4,000 professionals. Today, the company employs over 4,000 professional security people, a yardstick of their success.

Today, Summit is led by Robert and Richard Auletta who succeeded their father as Co-Presidents of the company in 2002. Continuing their father’s commitment to organic growth and client satisfaction, and drawing on their own backgrounds in law enforcement and business, they forged durable partnerships between Summit and its growing list of high-profile clients.

This year, Forbes ranked Summit #164 among 250 companies included in its “America’s Best Midsize Employers” list. The rankings were determined by an analysis of responses to an independent survey of more than 30,000 U.S. employees of large and midsize organizations, conducted by Forbes and Statista

The U.S. government’s General Services Administration (GSA) has also recognized Summit’s financial stability, exemplary performance, and transparent pricing by naming the company a GSA Approved Security Provider, certified by the federal government to provide security services to federal government agencies in 13 states, including New York, California and Texas, as well as Washington, D.C.

Summit is also committed to the communities they serve, and was the proud to sponsor the 6th Annual Heroes to Heroes Foundation Golf Outing held on July 18, at Leewood Golf Club in Eastchester, NY.

Heroes to Heroes Foundation is dedicated to providing peer support for veterans suffering from PTSD and emotional trauma. The non-denominational program organizes spiritually uplifting trips to Israel for teams of as many as 10 veterans.
