I met Andre some ten years ago when he was the key account manager for a restricted access area that I was managing at the time. Andre bent over backwards to facilitate our requirements and I can say with confidence that most of what I have learned about security over the years includes implementing correct responses, policies, and procedures—has been from him. Andre was always professional and dedicated, irrespective circumstances or his own opinion on certain issues. He always guided us in the right direction and as his client, we were always a priority to him and his team. When the contract between our organizations ended, Andre remained a trusted advisor and has subsequently become a friend and colleague upon whom I have come to rely and depend. His knowledge and understanding of security industry models, criminal behavior, and risk assessment is unique and unparalleled in the industry. I therefore consider it a write this cover-letter for his profile. I hope that the personalization of all the facts contained herein will assist him in his objectives, as well as putting your mind at ease during the selection process. Before starting Alwinco, André was employed in the South African Police Force (primarily in the investigation unit) for 21 years then spent an additional 11 industry.

From these, he has created his own special method of reverse crime engineering, which makes it possible for him to predict how a crime will happen before it actually does. He shows his clients how to protect themselves proactively—against criminal activity, its inevitable liabilities, and its long term consequences—simply by removing the opportunities unwittingly presented. I borrow from Andre when says criminals have many opportunities because victims generally all have the same things in common: 1. A poor level of knowledge (or no knowledge at all) about how to secure their properties 2. No control over their security before or after crime has occurred 3. No security plan in place, now or for the future 4. No independent security risk assessment Andre has identified the value of, the need for, and the process by which, to conduct independent security risk assessments. Andre very smartly started utilizing internet discussion forums long before anyone else in the industry. The reactions and questions he got inspired him to create Alwinco; an acronym for Always in Control. Even though independent risk assessments were unheard of at the time, he believed the service would provide invaluable information to the average man on the street, and also define outlines that security managers could use for security evaluation processes and procedures at a functional and practical level. Since leaving the police force Andre has conducted close to 300 security risk assessments on various buildings and structures, with the single intention of transforming identified risks into decision-making information. Andre has stood firm and had the courage to remain independent despite the money-making opportunities inherent in product selection and installation. He takes fees only for independent risk assessments and
