Black-Owned Security Company Executive Honored As Woman of Influence

Dr. Denitra Griffin, Co-Founder and President of AGB Investigative Services, as well as CEO of its charitable arm, The Always Giving Back Foundation, was recently selected as a Chicago Business Journal’s Women of Influence honoree. As one of ten female executives to be selected, the criteria was based on both career achievement as well as community leadership.

“I am honored to be selected as a Chicago Business Journal’s Women of Influence recipient, but I would not be in a position to give back to my community were it not for others gifting their talents and resources throughout my life,” Dr. Denitra Griffin said. “From my neighbor that rewarded me for good grades, to free tap lessons in the park, I am a direct result of the positive impact giving back can have on the lives of others.”

Her role in the largest Black-owned security company in the country has been instrumental to the organization’s growth and expansion to numerous locations throughout the country. Giving back to others, especially those in underserved communities within Chicago, has such prominence in her life that AGB stands for always giving back, particularly in providing access and opportunity for others. The mission-driven security company also has two non-profits- The AGB Institute and The AGB Foundation.

As CEO of the Always Giving Back Foundation, Dr. Griffin established a year-round internship program for minority youth, awarded over $65,500 in college scholarships, and spearheaded more than 12,900 hours of workforce development, mentoring, and coaching to date.
