Paragon Solutions Inc. was the brainchild of Dr. Alice B. Reeves, the founder and president of the company. After leading several successful companies in Quality Improvement Processes and New Product Development, Alice decided to strike out on her own in the fall of 1997 and launched Paragon alongside business partner Karen Hamilton.
Alice recognized that the international standard for Quality Management Systems, ISO 9001, provided an ideal framework for organizations to improve their management approach. Alice and Karen had a vision of guiding clients to success with their unique approach to management system implementation.
The story begins with Midland-Grau (now Haldex, Inc.), where Alice and Karen were employed when they met and formed the idea of starting their own company. Later, Haldex Inc. became Paragon’s first client. It wasn’t long before Alice and Karen began forming other connections, including connections with early industry clients Harley Davidson, Royal Canin, Brewer Science, Doe Run, Cannon, and Alliance Industries.
Paragon’s clients and projects have remained diverse and unique over the years, and the company strives to continue fostering long-term relationships with each client, just like they’ve done with Haldex Inc., which has remained a key client of Paragon for over 23 years.
