Genesis and the Ambassador Program

More great news from the Ambassador front as it was announced a few weeks back that the Downtown Ambassadors were awarded the National Industry Meetings Award for 2008. – the only award presented in BC – by the BC chapter of the Meeting Professionals International at its National Meetings Industry Day.

The National Award Program was created to recognize people or organizations outside the direct industry that support the development of meetings and conventions or the development of policy and programs impacting the industry.

This award is another fine example of the work that both the Downtown Ambassadors and the Loss Prevention Team do on a daily basis.

Thanks must go out to all the team members and the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association, as well as all the businesses and property owners in the 90 block area of the DVBIA who fully fund this program.

Excellent work once again guys!!!!!!

Note: Pictured above are two of our Ambassadors with Charles Gauthier, the Executive Director of the DVBIA and Bill Rempel, the President of the DVBIA (Thanks for your great support guys!!!!)

Genesis Security Close Protection

A month or so back, Genesis Security was given the opportunity to provide Close Protection to Karl Rove, who was in town delivering a speech to a group on local business people at the Four Seasons Hotel.

Mr. Rove is the recently retired ex-Deputy Chief of Staff to President George W. Bush and now acts as a political consultant and analyst, contributing to such media outlets as Fox, the Wall Street Journal and Newsweek.

While we cannot discuss his entire itinerary, I can tell you that our team provided his personal security from the time he stepped off of the airplane right up to the time where he passed through the customs gate at YVR.

Our team commented on how engaging a man he was and that he made a point of thanking everyone personally for all their hard work and long days; going so far as to write each of the team a nicely done handwritten note in which he expressed his gratitude.

This was another great job for Genesis Security and our Close Protection team, a team which has been consistently building it’s resume with names such as Al Gore, Steve Nash, the Spice Girls, and many others over the past year.

It’s funny that as I write this article, our guys are just finishing another job that involved Close Protection details for some of the judges from the television show “So You Think You Can Dance”. Another job that went very well as they are now inquiring as to whether they can keep our team members as they cross Canada doing their show!!!!!!

Excellent work guys, I know that because of the type of Security you provide we can’t talk much about you, but I can thank you here and now for doing such a fantastic job in helping build our reputation as the Total Security Solution in the province of British Columbia.

Genesis Security Wins Again!!!!!

I am very proud to announce that the Genesis Security Group has won the Top Choice award by being Canada’s Top Referred Security Guard Service in Vancouver.

Top Choice Awards is an important institution of the local and international business scene, recognized by the Government for its meaningful awards. The organization conducts democratic surveys, in multicultural cities around the globe, with the singular purpose of identifying and promoting businesses and professionals who have distinguished themselves amongst their competition and earned the peoples vote.

The results were collected during a 2 month survey conducted online and by telephone, which asked respondents across Canada to submit their top referrals in a wide variety of categories based on quality,service, value and professionalism, in addition to any other factors they consider important. The survey focused on the opinions of local business owners and consumers. The results are in and the majority of participants in the Vancouver area identified the Genesis Security Group as the Top Referred Security Guard Service of 2008.

Don’t forget that with the 2007 Consumers Choice Award being won by Genesis earlier in the year, this now makes us a Multi-Award Winning Company; something which all of our employees are very happy with, as everyone works very hard each day to ensure our clients are happy and well-taken care of.

This is another piece of great news for our company and I would like to thank all of our clients and everyone in the Community for supporting us. We promise that things will not slow down from here and that we will continue to strive to be the best Service Provider in the province.

Thanks again everyone!!!!!!!
