The CEO of one of the world’s largest security firms, discusses his Kingsman; a free close protection service to protect women and children from domestic violence, human trafficking and kidnapping.
Michael Evans, the CEO of USPA Nationwide Security shared his reasons for giving away such a large portion of his profits to his Kingsman Service. In an interview with Business Reporter, Fay Kadri, Evans spoke candidly about his childhood experiences with what he refers to as “A Monster for a father” who abused, stole, raped and murdered his way through life, before succumbing to cancer in 2019. The now CEO talked about his childhood secret hideaway, which was his playroom closet, where he would imagine that he was entering a safe haven; a hidden movie theater, where he was protected rom his father’s violence. He imagined a superhero who would come and save his family – and that is where Kingsman comes from – the superheroes other children need today.
One of the most compelling parts of the interview was when the interviewer asked, “Is there anything you would like to tell people who may need your Kingsman services, but are too skeptical to ask for your help?” To which Evans, responded, “I know there are some people who feel that nothing is free – that there must be a catch. There isn’t a catch. I do these things because I was you. Having grown up with a father who visited misery upon my family and other people’s families of a scope and scale that would embarrass even the most ambitious maniac, I understand the fear you are experiencing. Once you’re out of the nightmare, I will continue to support you in any way possible. That’s my promise.”
In March, 2020 Evans was featured in Forbes Magazine for his philanthropic work with his Kingsman Service as well as providing food for single mothers during the COVID-19 quarantine orders in March and April. The profits form USPA Nationwide Security were used almost exclusively during that 60-day period to help feed single mothers and their children in areas of Southern Florida. They used Uber Eats, Instacart and Zelle to help the local families who responded to their Facebook ads, which offered ‘no questions asked assistance with shopping or meals for single mothers and their children.’
According to Evans, “The idea of Kingsman is catching on in the industry. Other notable companies should be recognized for their efforts to assist women and children the same way we are, among the companies is Vigilant Tiger Security in Colorado Springs. Donny Hamilton and his wife, Natasha, should be receiving the same press I receive. They’ve earned it.”
