The value of executive protection is most often measured in its ability to protect clients from all threats of harm – from small to very grave such as kidnapping or assassination. However, additional value is in how executive protection makes C-suite persons more efficient and productive in carrying out their corporate responsibilities. It’s been shown anecdotally that executives are more productive in their movements and decision making when they’re secure in the cocoon of executive protection personnel.
One executive protection analyst put it this way: “We’re saving the company and the shareholders a lot of money because some of the CEOs that have protection teams are making thousands of dollars a minute. Every minute you can save those individuals, the better the company can function.”
Another protection observer states: “Executive protection teams contribute to the bottom line by making sure that everything is running smoothly. They increase their mobility and their effectiveness.”
