One in the same

One of the lessons I learned from my publicists Derbin and Arphelia Cabell of Cabell Publicity is that I needed to make sure that when someone heard, read or spoke of BPI Security they automatically related it to Eric Konohia.  On a local level that was not an issue, however as the footprint across the country was heard and …

Protection in Contracts

Not a plug and play industry

Let’s end this year and start the new with an understanding about one thing. We are in a SERVICE provider industry. Executive protection is NOT a product. If you sell cameras or motion detectors then you sell a product. Me and Mark have said over and over that we are no different than a plumber …
