Transguard Group has formally added Executive Protection to its security portfolio.
Estimating the regional executive protection market to be valued at more than AED20m, the new business arm within the company will offer personal security solutions for prominent business leaders, government officials, celebrities and families.
Extensive training in more than 16 different areas of expertise – including close protection journey management, security driving, surveillance awareness, venue security and more – have been provided to the Executive Protection team.
Greg Ward, managing director, Transguard said: “As the Middle East hub for a host of events spanning business, sports and entertainment, the UAE regularly welcomes a myriad of high net worth individuals and VIPs who are looking for on-the-ground expertise and tailored solutions during their time in the country.
Further strengthening the team’s capabilities, Transguard has worked closely with UK-based security training experts, Horizon, to ensure the new division not only meets but exceeds the global standard for executive close protection.
Paul Muir, CEO, Horizon, said: “In just six years Horizon has developed a reputation for providing the best training in the industry. Our partnership with Transguard will ensure the very best training is delivered to the next generation of premier security personnel in the UAE.”
