MINNEAPOLIS, March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- EPG Security Group announced today it has been hired by the newest music venue in the Twin Cities, The Brick. EPG Security has developed and will handle the entire security program at The Brick, from ticket-taking and screening at the front door, to ushers and physical security inside, for both concert events and "The Basement @ The Brick," the lower-level bar. To fully staff the new program, EPG has hired more than 50 protective agents. EPG Security and The Brick will go live with the new venue and security program on March 19, with an already sold-out concert by the band Jane's Addiction.
The concept of a burly, aggressive bouncer is out at EPG Security Group, where security personnel are hired as much for their tactful approach as for their professional training and skills. This drew the attention of management at The Brick.
"Our goal in creating The Brick is to give concert-goers a unique, intimate music experience. Because security personnel are the first people our guests interact with, it was a top priority to us to find the right agency that could provide a professional, customer-oriented security program. EPG Security Group provides exactly what we were looking for," said Jeff Kehr, general manager of The Brick. "EPG's protective agents are well-trained, approachable, and respectful, contributing to the overall first-class experience our guests have when they come to The Brick."
"The vision for security that The Brick had aligns with our company's philosophy, and we're proud to be part of this new intimate music venue," said Erik Bergling, CEO of EPG Security Group. "This opportunity has allowed EPG to open up a large number of jobs, and the timing was just right, as we found a good base of candidates right here in the Twin Cities and were able to fill the positions quickly."
EPG Security Group is an independently owned full-service security and investigative agency providing executive protection, uniformed officers, and investigative programs. Clients include Cara Irish Pubs in the Twin Cities, the Obama Inauguration in DC, and the Republican National Convention. Based in the State of Minnesota, EPG Security has networks extending worldwide. For more information, visit http://www.epgsecuritygroup.com/.
