USPA Nationwide Security CEO, Michael Evans, today announced Michael Blake as the Director of International Affairs of the multi-national security firm. Evans, who previously served in this position, which was left vacant last year, is now focusing on the Kingsman Division.
“After years of working with USPA on every level, from performing kidnap recoveries, to becoming a branch owner in Los Angeles, Michael Blake has our full confidence to lead the international branch” said Daniel Manning, the firm’s Vice President. “We welcome him to our executive team, and I know he will have a positive impact on the work we do in the international market.”
Working parallel to Sondae Esposito, the President of the International Branch, Blake is already leading an executive level close protection security detail in Paris, France and another in Mexico. Much like his colleague, Dan Manning, Blake hit the ground running, with logistical challenges on different continents simultaneously. Evans calls it the, “School of hard knocks.”
