Patrick Henderson is a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute with a BS in Civil Engineering and co-owner and co-founder of Protos. Building upon a perceived need to bring business intelligence to the guard industry, Protos has risen from its start in 2006 to become the industry innovator. Along with Chris Copenhaver, Patrick has had the vision to see that guards are a data point and a valuable part of the equation when assigning a store’s risk value. Beginning with a test pilot with Advance Auto Parts, to lower total program costs, and improve accountability in their nationwide guard program, Protos came to prove that security guards could be held to a higher standard with the right technology systems in place. Protos now has become the premier guard service management company. Protos is a valuable partner to inform and equip national retail Loss Prevention Managers to better manage their national security guard programs.
