With a strong foundation in state-of-the-art ground and air security as Vice President of Virgin Security Services in North America, our President and CEO William McGuire was inspired to form Global Security Associates (GSA) in 2002.
The exponential success of Global Security Associates – as well as a recognition of the need to provide emergency management expertise – led to the development of the Global Elite Group in 2009, which expanded our security services in the areas of emergency management, corporate contingency consulting and planning, personal protection services, event security, K-9 detection units, crowd control and asset protection.
Aviation Security and Management
Aviation security and management has been at the forefront of our organization since its inception in 2002. Mr. McGuire has been serving the aviation security marketplace since the early 90s, long before he had the foresight to launch his own firm. Global Aviation Management has developed a reputation as a premier provider to the commercial and general aviation communities. In addition, several members of our management team are affiliated with a major international airline.
