As the son of security pioneer Milton Pierce, who founded Guardian Alarm in 1930, Douglas Pierce has spent his entire life in the industry. After graduating from Lawrence Technological University in 1965, Douglas started his own security company, Automatic Alarm. A decade later, Automatic Alarm merged with Guardian Alarm and Douglas was appointed CEO. He led the expansion of the company into several new markets and the addition of Security Guard and Medical Monitoring divisions. He held numerous Patents and was a founding member of Net One Alarm Association. Douglas' efforts have grown Guardian into one of North America's largest independently owned and operated security companies.
