Here at Vanguard Executive Services, we have personally selected and vetted our Close Protection staff. Only choosing Operatives who not only have the qualifications but the right mindset and intelligence to think on their feet in the highest of demanding environments and situations.

Most of our Operatives are from the military, which includes Special Forces and Elite Units/Regiments. This ensures that people in the protection team are among the most knowledgeable, trustworthy and professional in the industry.

We gather information from the client, to give the best advice and allocate the right operatives to the task - showing transparency throughout.
