About Us

The Company

Established in 1994, Protector Group began by supplying security to clients across the North East, initially concentrating on Static Site Security and Manned Guarding.

The company’s founder, John Spencer Harvey, always emphasised quality rather than quantity, only taking on contracts where they could deliver excellence.

Lord Stevens joined the business in 2008, attracted by its innovation, dedication to excellence, superb people, strong regional presence and immense national potential. His influence has led to a growth in the reach of the company from a local to a fully national security resource.

Today Protector Group provides complex, bespoke, mission-critical security solutions to major sites all over the UK.
