Aaron Gillespie has been surrounded by the Security Industry his entire life. His father, Ellis Gillespie, is the Founder and CEO of Guardus Security. When Aaron was a young child, he and his dad would drive from site to site checking on Officers, conducting light reports, and visiting clients. Aaron would also join along during criminal investigation cases from inception through court, client sales meetings, and security and management seminars. At a young age, Aaron learned that a key factor to success in building long term clientele is building a winning personnel team and winning security officers whose core values are integrity, respect, and teamwork.
As a young adult he started working for Guardus as the Fleet Safety Manager, fueling patrol vehicles, conducting routine maintenance, and changing tires, in the early mornings before college. He worked his way up through every position in the company so he could learn every aspect of the business. Now, seven years later, he is the Chief Operating Officer of Guardus Security and is looking forward to the future and expanding what his father has grown over the last 30 years.
As Chief Operating Officer, Aaron discovered that excellence in customer service has become an antiquated concept in many industries, including the security industry. Mr. Gillespie remains dedicated in his position that exceptional customer service is vital to his success and his clients. Additionally, communication and integrity are the two most important avenues to achieving excellence in customer service. With this in mind, Aaron has acquired new technology and developed Guardus' operating procedure to meet client needs and minimize operating costs. These technologies include electronic reports, electronic scheduling/time-keeping, and GPS monitoring.
Mr. Gillespie manages and operates the day to day operations of Guardus. He is a key liaison for Guardus and each of its clients. Having developed lifelong relationships with many of Guardus’ clients, he is a successful visionary, communicator and everyone’s favorite “Yes!” man. There is no task Mr. Gillespie cannot succeed in, if he puts his mind to it. Exceptional customer service is the foundation for his success. Client responsibilities include but are not limited to: Corporate, commercial and residential security assessments, custom master security plan design, security consultations for properties and tangible assets, and implementation of security solutions.
