Transguard enters the UAE’s AED20 million executive protection market

Transguard unveils a dedicated team that will offer bespoke executive protection to
high net worth individuals, VIPs and celebrities     

Leading UAE-based business services provider, Transguard Group, has formally added Executive Protection to its extensive Security portfolio. Estimating the regional executive protection market to be valued at more than AED20 million, Executive Protection from Transguard offers individually tailored 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 equipped the Executive Protection team with the skills necessary to qualify at internationally recognised standards in executive protection.

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. 

“Our team of highly trained security professionals relies upon their unrivalled local knowledge to make it possible for our clients to attend meetings, events and everything else the UAE has to offer with total peace of mind and confidence,” added Ward.

As the UAE’s only Executive Protection provider with unique airside access privileges, Transguard offers complete end-to-end services for overseas visitors that are available from touchdown to take off, undertaking the role of a dedicated security team throughout the duration of the client’s visit. In addition to high visibility protection, Transguard will also offer a more discrete security option with the same level of service that is tailored for business visits, tourists, families, young adults and children. 

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: “Horizon is a market leader in executive protection and in just six years we’ve developed a reputation for providing the very 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.”

As the UAE’s leading and largest security provider, Transguard aims to meet larger personnel demands while also providing a tailored suite of services to this unique demographic and its specific requirements.
