About US


Who We Are

Cascadia Global Security, Inc. (CGS) is a veteran-owned security company based in Seattle, WA and San Antonio, TX and offering services across the country. Our experience in working at client facilities on a national, regional, and local basis is unparalleled by any other company in the industry. Our love for our work and care for our clients is demonstrated by our #54 rank on the 2022 Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies. We service clients both large and small across the United States, providing security for sites from retail stores to sensitive government buildings.

CGS was created and is still owned by two US Army veterans who created CGS with two goals in mind: a higher level of customer service and employing veterans in good-paying jobs. These goals led to the creation of our Core Values.

CGS now operates with twelve branch offices across the country. Our Headquarters in Seattle, WA serves the Pacific Northwest and Rockies regions while our Headquarters in Austin, TX serves the Southwest and Southeast United States. With over 700 team members, CGS is able to service local, regional, and national clients with consistent and dedicated team members and a full management team in each region.

Our combined management team offers more years than we can reasonably count of private security, military, and police experience. Our founders are both former military, and one a former police officer. Every CGS Director from Sales to Operations, Corporate Development to Training, offers a minimum of 5 years of private security management experience with an average of 10+ years in the military or law enforcement
