Bravo1 Protection is led by Chief Executive Officer Tammy Johnson, one of Greenville’s leading hospitality experts. Tammy was inspired to start Bravo1 after many failed attempts at finding adequate security firms for her special event properties. She understands that for a business owner, having thoroughly trained, customer-service oriented security officers is a must. Security officers are the first impression a guest will have of our client’s business, so they need to represent their brand appropriately. We pride ourselves on operating a work environment where all of our employees are treated fairly and with great respect. We wouldn’t be successful without each and every one of our employees, so we do our best to take care of them.
