Shawn Smith

Owner/CEO/President M.P.I.

Shawn has been our private security mentor since we first launched our website shortly after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. It's difficult to overstate the impact Shawn Smith has had not only on private security in the USA but throughout the world due to his work with CUNA Mutual Group, The Credit Union National Association, and The World Council of Credit Unions. It's with great confidence and pride that I call Shawn Smith my friend and professional mentor.
