Meet the Black Woman Powering One of the Midwest’s Largest Security Firms

Dr. Jennifer Matthews

Nationwide — In a landscape dominated by male voices, Dr. Jennifer Matthews stands tall as a beacon of innovation and inclusion in the security sector. As the proud owner of one of the largest black woman-owned security firms in the Midwest, based in Chicago, Dr. Matthews is reshaping the industry with her unique perspective and unwavering commitment to excellence.

Dr. Matthews’s journey into the security realm began with humble roots, working alongside her father in his private security company. When the pandemic shuttered businesses across the nation, her father decided to retire, presenting Dr. Matthews with an opportunity to carry on his legacy. Embracing the challenge, she transformed adversity into triumph, taking the reins and propelling the family business to new heights.

“I am proud to be a part of this industry and grateful for the chance to carry on my father’s legacy,” Dr. Matthews reflects on her journey. Her background as a deputy sheriff and civilian endowed her with a nuanced understanding of security dynamics, enabling her to provide clients with tailored solutions that bridge the gap between law enforcement and civilian perspectives.
At the heart of Dr. Matthews’s firm, Paramount Security Analytics, lies a steadfast commitment to diversity and inclusion. Recognizing the underrepresentation of women and minorities in the security sector, she has made it her mission to level the playing field.

“Diversity and inclusion are crucial for any organization to succeed,” she asserts. “I strive to create equal opportunities for all, ensuring that everyone is recognized for their unique skills and merit.”

Paramount Security Analytics offers tailored security services for buildings, events, executives, and more. With highly trained personnel and advanced technology, the firm provides clients with cutting-edge solutions to their security needs, setting a new standard for excellence in the industry.

Dr. Matthews is a driving force behind digital transformations to solve cases quicker with body-worn cameras. She understands that body-worn cameras create a safer world, help victims fight for justice, and protect the lives of the innocent. Through her leadership, Paramount Security Analytics is at the forefront of leveraging technology to enhance security measures and ensure justice prevails.

Despite facing the challenges of being overlooked and undervalued in a traditionally male-dominated industry, Dr. Matthews remains undeterred. “When people would close a door, I would open a window,” she says with determination. Her unwavering resolve and entrepreneurial spirit have propelled her firm to prominence, earning accolades and admiration from peers and clients alike.

As Women’s History Month unfolds, Dr. Jennifer Matthews stands as a testament to the resilience, ingenuity, and boundless potential of women in business. Her story serves as an inspiration to aspiring entrepreneurs and a reminder of the transformative power of perseverance in the face of adversity.
