Google will typically over ride a business's use of a logo as the profile image with whatever it finds across the web or from other uploads you have made. They don't think that logo provides a good user experience.

 

I would suggest that

1- You search in your industry and see what Google does show

2- Upload some great photos that are similar plus others that you feel proud of

3- Include some variety of people, outside, inside and perhaps (if appropriate) inventory  shots

4- Of those pick the one that you like the most at the profile photo

 

Wait and see if Google "likes" it. 

 

You can if you wish at that point, create a version of that image with your logo in the bottom 10% of the image and then upload that. It might (or it might not) stick. That's the only way to get Logo to stick. 

 

Here is an example (only marginally effective but within the rules):
