This interview was absolutely amazing, where else can you listen to a conversation with an individual who has done so much for the industry and evolved through what could be considered a full cycle of development in the Private Security Game. Starting in the realm of basic square badge / club security, evolving into Executive Protection, launching his own company and eventually selling it for millions, all with no LEO or Military experience. With a background and experience working some of the first and largest tech contracts in the game and also legendary hip-hop artists; Christian West needs no introduction as an individual who has much to contribute from his journey.
