Chris Copenhaver is a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute with a BA in Economics and Business and cofounded Protos Security in 2006. Protos began with a simple statement… “There is a better way.” Our goals were to deliver better innovative technologies to the Loss Prevention industry, a better way to reduce program costs, a better way to capture valuable data from the officers, and a better way to improve the accountability of the security officers. Advance Auto Parts understood our vision and gave us a chance. After 10 years, we are proud to still be in a growing partnership with Advance Auto Parts and equally proud to celebrate the 85 other clients whom we have forged a strong partnership. We believe in continuous improvement and mediocrity is something we fear. Our constant focus and relentless objective is to continue being the premier security officer service management company, with whom others say, “They created a better way.”
