Garvian Group Q&A
What do you love most about your job?
Receiving Positive Feedback! this is the most important factor, knowing my clients are happy and have received a good service is why I'm in business.
What inspired you to start your own business?
After leaving a career serving as a Bomb Search &.Disposal operative in the British Armed Forces, I began working as a bodyguard to VIP's across London. Over the years I began noticing a vast drop in standards within the security industry, due to the people coming into it using it as a stepping stone, rather than seeing it as a profession, leaving clients in desperate need.
I started my business focusing on providing the best operatives I've worked with over the years, or for those on low budgets, taking average security guards and with my team's knowledge an experience, transforming them into security professionals.
Why should our clients choose you?
I never disappoint! I am well regarded within the security industry, anyone working on my behalf represents not only my company, but me personally. If you decide to invest in my company, you are guaranteed to receive quality guards who deliver a professional service.
