Watch The Full Length Training Introduction:

Byron Rodgers

Founder | The League of EP Specialists

During my time in the military, I served in the United States Marine Corps infantry with two deployments to Iraq as a Squad Leader for four years. Right afterward, I became an Executive Protection Agent.

Today, I proudly serve as the Chief Executive Officer at Bravo Research Group, a private security company out of Southern California. I’m the founder of Protector Nation, a training company for first responders, private security professionals and civilians designed to help good people become more dangerous.

I own and operate my own executive protection school and training organization called The League of Executive Protection Specialist, where I help private security professionals take their careers to the next level.
