This isn't your average power couple. Rather, Michael and Darla Guevremont both come from varied backgrounds, bringing unique and prestigious experience to their entrepreneurial venture, Executive Protection Systems (EPS).
Michael, Vice President of Operations, and Darla, Vice President of Business Development, will host a Howard Hoffman Distinguished Lecture Series on creating, building, and launching their own startup. They will discuss the skills, connections, perspective, capital, and much more necessary to starting one's own business.
A complimentary food and beverage reception will be held at 4:00pm, 1 hour prior to the 5:00pm start of the lecture.
Michael has worked with the White House, U.S. Secret Service, and the U.S. Army Military Police/Quartermaster Corps, lending his communications and security skills, wherein he ultimately directed the logisitical upgrading of all White House continuity facilities. Darla has worked with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Datalux Corporation, and counts over 20 years of sales and marketing experience.
