New York — March 18
Effective immediately, Global Security Associates LLC will be known as Global Elite Group Inc. Founded in 2002 by William McGuire, the company is a commercial and general aviation security services provider with 10 offices located at international U.S. airports. The name change reflects the company’s growth of services in specific areas of aviation security, executive protection and protective travel services, physical security, emergency management and security consulting services.
“Our vision of servicing the diverse security needs, in a changing world, has led us to an internal restructuring,” said William McGuire, president and CEO of the Garden City, N.Y.-based company. “The results are newly formed divisions to meet our clients’ specific and ever-changing security goals.”
Global Elite Group will offer its clients four divisions: Global Security Associates is providing services from stationary guard posts to executive and dignitary protection. Global Aviation Management is servicing the aviation community with passenger verification programs, as well as commercial and general aviation security programs, including cargo security, flight monitoring and private charter screening services. Global Emergency Management designs solutions for business continuity needs, crisis management, disaster support, evacuation programs and risk assessments before, during and after a man-made or natural disaster. Global Consulting Group is providing consulting services for clients interested in all facets of learning about how a tailored security approach can benefit a company’s bottom line.
McGuire pointed out that the company’s mission and business plan has not changed.
“Global Elite Group is uniquely positioned to work with companies who are at the very beginning stages of planning security for their company and/or clients, to the advanced needs of assisting governments, dignitaries and large scale international meetings and events,” he said.
