We don’t hire employees.
We hire leaders.


GDBA’s Professional Leadership Track (PLT) is a 2-year on-the-job training curriculum that prepares protectors for future leadership positions at GDBA or in their next career.


GDBA’s promotional system is merit-based. Performance matters most, not seniority.


GDBA offers hundreds of training courses, exercises, and certifications. Each step throughout the 2-year PLT and beyond is measured and evaluated by the Training Division to ensure every associate continually gains proficiency, experience, and confidence.


We care about one thing: Performance.


Our culture is embodied by three aspects of our work:
1) merit-based, 2) bureaucracy-free, and 3) opportunity-driven.


Many associates protect our clients at their residences, while others are assigned to corporate Global Operations Centers or other business locations that demand close protection. Most protectors are assigned to a multitude of details within their first year.
