Meet our Management Team

Stephen H. Wilkinson, President/Owner

stephen-wilkinsonU.S. naval veteran Stephen Wilkinson launched into the security business in 1996 first working with industry leaders such as Medeco Security Locks, Best Access Systems, and Stanley Security Solutions. Stephen saw an industry on the verge of big change and brought his naval discipline and entrepreneurial business sense from Ole Miss to Richmond when he acquired Richmond Security over a decade ago.

Maintaining their standard as a Richmond leader in safes and mechanical locks, Stephen seized the opportunity to arise as the regional leader in Access Control and emerging security technologies. Stephen doesn’t just lead the team, he’s a part of it … he is often seen with Olivia the team’s favorite canine, rolling up his sleeves to pitch in.
