Bednarz secured Pinkertonís position as the market leader in the office security business. Between 1968 and 1976, Pinkertonís financial performance was among the top 50 companies in the United States in terms of both return on assets and market value. As Chairman, Bednarz helped to facilitate Pinkertonís acquisition by American Brands, Incorporated in 1982, which enabled it to expand into the residential security industry.
