Grant S. Nearing's Summary

I can confidently say that I will be an asset to any team with my extensive risk evaluation experience and winning attitude. You will find me to be indispensible!

I have supervised large security teams in many environments such as executive protection, emergency response, technical measures, and site risk planning for large scale corporate events - to name a few. I have had the most amazing experiences, from planning large scale concert and event security, to working in a 977 room hotel,to consultations in Central America, to celebrity bodyguarding and travel.

I have a true enjoyment in working with the public and in the security industry, and I am proud of my achievements, and my many accolades from staff, clients, and the public.

If there is a situation that people can get into, chances are, I have dealt with it flawlessly.
I have always taken my responsibilities to patrons’ safety very seriously, and with that have had a fantastic rapport with local law enforcement.

Building solid relationships is my forte, and I have always enjoyed the role of the “go-to” person, no matter what the challenge may be. I thrive on pressure, always working on urgent deadline. I am very comfortable “spinning many plates” at once, and handling multiple projects and responsibilities with professionalism.

My sense of humor and upbeat energy are matched with a great work ethic. My excellent verbal and written communication skills have enabled me to overcome the obstacles that inevitably arise in this industry.

I will be very happy to answer any questions that you may have. Please feel free to contact me at any time and I look forward to hearing from you.
