Jeff Ward, named 2021 Rising CEO Award Winner


Nov 22 2021

Guardian is delighted to announce that our CEO, Jeff Ward, has received the ‘Rising CEO Award’ from CEO Monthly. An internationally respected publication, CEO Monthly regularly shines a light on the greatest and brightest business leaders from around the world.

Jeff Ward is highlighted as playing an integral role in the harmonization of multiple acquisitions into a single organization, Guardian, making it the largest independent fall protection and prevention brand. Whether working at heights, securing dropped objects, providing custom engineering solutions, or offering industry leading training, Guardian takes a 360-degree approach to keeping its customers safe.

Jeff responded, “Although this award kindly recognizes me, it is really a team award. It was clear that the reason for the award was very much driven by our hard work this year to consolidate around the Guardian brand and promote, hire, and develop some awesome safety experts. In my discussions with CEO Monthly, they clearly recognized our ambition and our bright future. Another great award for Guardian.”
