About this pro
I represent the client in the security arena. Most often a manager or supervisor is appointed to set up or establish security. He or she usually is at the mercy of the security company which advises what that company needs in the way of security. Unfortunately the company purchases services and equipment that they do not need for a hefty price. I represent the client and I ensure they purchase only what is needed and that they get what they pay for. I do not allow the provider to take advantage of the client. When you go to court you hire a lawyer; when you negotiate with a security provider you need a representative that is on your side. I am that representative I am your advocate. I enjoy negotiating and representing the client. I love the fact that the security provider and I am on the same level and that I can get the best security coverage for the client and I safe them time and money.
