Dion Neill and his nationwide team of security professionals provide close personal protection, specialised security and risk management in medium to high-risk environments for a growing number of corporate executives, international celebrities, sports personalities, entertainers, film talent and high-net worth clients.

Dion commenced a professional executive and personal protection service in New Zealand after providing security to celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver and Bardot from the Australian television series, Pop Stars.

Dion’s people are also deployed to provide security at events, movie premiers, corporate meetings, weddings and private functions. From security trained drivers, event security personnel and close protection specialists, contact us for a no obligation consultation.

Over the last decade there has been a global shift towards, not just the employment of specialist security, but the attitude towards it. Once a service employed solely by the rich or famous; specialist security and close protection has now become a necessity of modern business and personal safety.

In today’s society, corporate executives and high profile individuals face increasing threats of extortion, retaliation, public embarrassment and kidnapping. For many, the deployment of discreet protection services has now become a reality.

Public figures are increasingly at risk from individuals and groups seeking to harass, injure or extort money for some perceived injustice or to promote their cause. Dion and his associates provides discreet executive protection, a personal protection service commonly referred to as executive care.

Dion’s team of personal protection officers (“bodyguards”) have many years of international experience and a unique skill set to manage any risk associated with the threat of abduction, kidnapping, physical assault or predatory type behaviour.

Whether you require complete security or personal protection management, we provide highly professional, qualified and experienced personnel for all your security and personal protection requirements. Dion and his team also provide a nationwide security and risk management consultancy service.
