Team Leadership

From the Founder / CEO

Allow me to thank you for considering TLG for your security needs. Since the company’s founding in 1987, we’ve grown into one of Northern California’s most trusted security providers due to our steadfast commitment to our clients and to the members of our team.

The great importance we place on satisfaction originates from my personal experience in the security field and the lessons I’ve carried with me. Before branching off to establish TLG, I managed a small security firm along with two retired law enforcement officers. During this time I gained insight into the vital nature of strong relationships with clients and employees. For this reason, I readily offer my time to every client throughout the relationship. In fact, it’s a common sight to see me “drop in” on posts to ensure the quality of our service is at its highest. This also gives me the opportunity to maintain close relationships with all members of the TLG Team.

At TLG, we are proud to have retained our small business values through our expansion. I encourage you to experience our legendary commitment by partnering with our team.

From the Chief Operating Officer

Thank you for expressing interest in TLG. After a 20-year friendship with Ian and a careful analysis of his organization, I decided to join TLG as co-owner and COO, fully supporting the mission to provide unparalleled commitment to our security relationships.

My goal is to continue the TLG legacy of client care while expanding resources for advanced training and other development programs. I know that investing in our company means investing in our people. Everyday since joining the team, I’ve shared our vision with Team Members (as we fondly call our employees) encouraging them to embrace their role in our success.

Adopting new security technologies and adding valuable service features has further increased client satisfaction in recent years. We are proud to offer service customization to meet the unique needs of our clients as well as expertise on complex security issues. Let our experienced team provide solutions to your security challenges…so you can focus on what matters most in your business. To this we are committed.
