CRAIG WALKER, Vice President of Unarmed Event Security
In 2018, Craig Walker joined G-Force Security Solutions after a 30-year career in the education sector. During his educational tenure, Craig served 17 years as an Athletic Administrator for three different school districts in Carroll County, Maryland. He was named the Maryland State Athletic Directors Association Athletic Director of the Year on multiple occasions.
Initially, Craig was a part-time member of our athletic event security team upon his retirement from education. However, with his expertise and knowledge of the "behind-the-scenes" planning for athletic events, Craig was an obvious choice for G-Force's expansion and growth of our athletic event security in recent years. Craig works very closely with several local school district athletic directors to review their security needs for athletic events in an effort to keep student-athletes, coaches, officials, families, and fans safe.
During the last few years, Craig's role at G-Force Security Solutions has expanded beyond local athletic events. Currently, he oversees our Unarmed Security Division which provides trained security guards for a variety of businesses, community events, athletic events, etc.
