The Inside Story:
“People think celebrity protection or dignitary protection work requires big hulking gorillas running around with machine guns and pushing people out of the way. While that may have been true once upon a time, I believe the biggest muscle a protection agent needs to have is the mind.
Protection for Very Important People is not about fighting the ‘bad guys’, it’s about having an Executive Protection staff that assists in making sure your client’s schedule is free from distractions so they can do the things that make themselves successful.
I’m just as concerned with my client slipping on ice as being a victim of an assault. Our job is to anticipate and prepare.”
— Agent Joey Guzman, Executive Protection Division
