Towards the end of 2006, I was introduced to one of the neatest and most unique individuals I've ever met - Clint Bruce.
Clint Bruce is the President of Trident Response Group. TRG provides intelligence and security for corporations, high net worth families and families offices. Clint has a very storied path that has led him to his current position: A Naval Academy grad; a professional football player - having spent time with both the Baltimore Ravens & New Oreleans Saints; and a Navy SEAL - spent a 5 year tour with SEAL Team FIVE, culminating in a 9 month deployment in direct support of the Global War on Terrorism and OPERATION Enduring Freedom.
Trident Response Group was born out of Hurricane Katrina and a mission that Clint chose to accept. Clint was contacted by a friend of his, Frank Naboulsi, general manager for the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas, saying that he needed Clint's help in getting his colleagues out of the Fairmont New Orleans. Clint rallied a 10-man security team and a caravan of eight buses to extract those pent up in the flooded Fairmont. In all, approximately 900 people were rescued by Clint's team. A long term client of The Reaves Agency - Glynn Broussard of PDS Companies along with many of his employees - was among those liberated. (Read the 9/23/05 Dallas Business Journal article by Chad Eric Watt entitled, "Saving the Day: Dallas hotel spearheads fast, dramatic N.O. rescue effort"). You can also see more about TRG on their website: www.trg-ltd.com.
It has been my pleasure to get to know Clint and to introduce him to other trusted advisors and clients that I know. If you are interested in meeting him as well, I would be happy to facilitate an introduction to him.
