Wackenhut Corp., the world's largest security company, is building its new headquarters just south of PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens. Wackenhut plans to move from Miami in January or early February.


The Secret Agent Man

"(Wackenhut) does it all through his subordinates. He doesn't call upon X to do something. If X reports to Y, he goes to Y and says, `Have X do something.' I guess I'd be guilty of going around people. That comes from starting out as a one-man operation where I had my finger on everything."

-- George Wackenhut, chairman and founder of The Wackenhut Corp., discussing his son Richard, who runs the company.
