We understand intimately the needs of our Executive & Corporate Clients. 

Vanguard Global was founded by Tim Elabd​, a twelve-year veteran of the security and defense industries, having managed security operations globally, and extensively across Africa and the Middle East. And is co-owned with Sir Edward Banayoti Sawiris, business magnate and a true industry leader within the defense and security arenas. Vanguard Global is a subsidiary of;

Our leadership team are experts in their given fields with strong leadership skills and great insight. Between them, they have decades of experience in the security industry, both as highly decorated state security officials as well as key decision makers in the private security industry. Together, we work closely with an extensive network of affiliates, stakeholders and associates. Collectively, we offer our clients a wealth of knowledge and operational experience.

At Vanguard Global we settle for no less than excellence, both in terms of the level of security and safety we provide our clients and their assets, as well as the level of professionalism and client servicing our operatives and staff are accustomed to delivering.

Like very few others in the industry, we understand better than most the requirements and preferences of our corporate clients and their needs in terms of asset protection and the protection of their employees. We also understand intimately the preferences and sensibilities that our high-net-worth clients expect while we are on duty protecting lives, assets and interests.

With intimate knowledge of the various geographical regions in which we operate, close ties with various governmental agencies as well as local assets, Vanguard Global has emerged as a robust and flexible organisation that is highly adaptable to the ever-changing landscape in which it operates.


This is most reflected in the wide range of security solutions we offer our clients, as well as the diversity of clients to whom we cater. From the personal protection of corporate executives, diplomats and dignitaries, to the implementation of stringent security procedures to protect their businesses, employees, assets and interests, Vanguard Global is at the forefront of the industry.​
