How did you get started? Share more about yourself and the environment you grew up in as a child… Tell us about yourself. What’s your background?
I was working for a Fortune 100 company as Director of Security in the early 80’s. I was constantly being contacted by a wide range of consultants to fill gaps, so I took the initiative to found The Guidry Group. Our focus was to service Fortune 100 companies and high net worth individuals more effectively than the competition, those who need security services for their business and family.
What was your ah-ha moment that set you on the path you are on today?
While on a trip to Libya, I encountered highly educated people turning to violence to cope with the lack of job opportunities or available work. I decided there was a better way for these people to support their families. From there, I set out to make a difference.
