MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- EPG Security Group announced today it will be heading to Tampa later this month to provide protective services for senior elected officials and special events surrounding the Republican National Convention. The firm has been retained by two different national political clients to provide security for areas inside the convention forum itself, parties for state delegations and the elected officials attending those events.
Both contracts are the result of relationships initially forged with EPG Security Group when the RNC was held in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 2008. The work performed by EPG in St. Paul led to the firm being brought to Washington, DC, to provide security for events around President Obama's inauguration in 2009, and again for the Speaker of the House's election party in 2010.
"I am proud of the relationships we've established with our political clients and extremely proud of the hard work of my team," said Erik Bergling, CEO of EPG Security Group. "Together they are the foundation of our continued growth."
"I was impressed by EPG's Midwest work ethic when they worked for us at the RNC in St. Paul," said Julie Wadler, founder and president of Epiphany Productions, Inc., a premier, full-service event management and fundraising firm based just outside of Washington, DC, that has hired EPG to provide RNC-related security in Tampa. "Our reputation as event planners is based on exceptional service, know-how, and attention to detail. We need to work with vendors that provide us with those same qualities, so we can give our clients the best, customized services they need to be successful. Erik Bergling and his firm do just that. They are flexible, easy to work with, detail-oriented, and – yes, nice."
