Arizona Oct 16 2016 Arizona-based Kevin Soulages, a mall security professional for Allied Universal—a leading facility services company and the largest security force in North America with over 150,000 employees—recently received the “coveted” Simon Properties Tom Cernock Award for outstanding performance on the job.
An Allied Universal employee since 2012, Soulages recently became assistant director at Arizona Mills Mall in Tempe. “Kevin is a valued member of the Arizona Mill’s Security team and receiving this coveted award only confirms that fact,” said Mark Lo Schiavo, Allied Universal account manager.
“Kevin is an exemplary officer and continuously goes above and beyond the call of duty. He is reliable, hardworking, and knowledgeable in his craft. He is always ready to extend a helping hand to his fellow officers, mall tenants, mall management and our customers,” said Lo Schiavo.
Soulages has a security/law enforcement background that dates back to 1993 and he continues to perfect his knowledge and skills and he shares what he has learned with both his peers and subordinates. He previously worked at Phoenix Premium Outlets.
The award is named after the late Tom Cernock, former vice president of corporate security for the Simon Property Group, which contracts with Allied Universal for security. Cernock was a leader and pioneer in the area of security.
