Thank You Letters
Dear Mark & Ron,
I wanted to take the time to personally thank you both for the services The Gold Shield Group has provided to the Heisman Trophy Trust over the past six years. With the 2007 Heisman Trophy Awards readily approaching I am reminded of the service and professionalism your company has continually shown in the past. Your attention to detail has been instrumental with regard to our event support, and has greatly attributed to their great successes. We all look forward to working with you again this year and in the years to come. Best regards.
For the 68th time this year, the Downtown Athletic Club of New York City presented the Heisman Memorial Trophy Award. In the matter of three days more than a dozen events took place to commemorate the announcement of the trophy and its presentation to this years winner, Carson Palmer of the University of Southern California.
We were so very pleased that each of these events went off successfully. It is undoubtedly true that our success is in part due by the superior security and protection services provided by you and your fine staff. I cannot begin to thank you enough for the professional treatment that we received.
On behalf of the Heisman staff, we appreciate the quality of the outstanding service that your crew provided us. Several of the former trophy winners each noted how impressed they were with the security detail this year. Your team consistently made the extra effort to assist us with all of our needs.
With so many different aspects to be concerned about, knowing that your crew was on board gave us one less worry. You were consistently dependable and above par overall. Please accept our appreciation. We look forward to a continued relationship in the future.
Thank you again for your invaluable assistance.

Planning events requires the coordination and cooperation of several parties. It is a great comfort to know that the issues of security are not only treated seriously, but with great attention to detail and precision. You and your staff are a pleasure to work with. Your men are sharp, courteous and aware of present situations at all time. Their ability to handle any given situation in a timely professional manner is obviously one of the factors that have set The Gold Shield Group as one of the leaders in your profession. We look forward to a continued relationship and extend our thanks once again.

Dear Mark & Ron,
A worldwide corporation such as Yum! Brands, Inc holds the bar very high with regard to the standards we insist upon. Only the highest level of service with regard to a security/protection firm is acceptable to our company. The Gold Shield Group over the past years has proven to bring the professionalism that we required in a high level security firm. The fact that you have provided the needed resources at short notice has always been critical in an environment where long term planning is not always a luxury that is afforded. “We look forward to a long continued relationship”.

Dear Mr. Lawson:
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the thorough and comprehensive services that your agency performed at our May 12th Spring Educational Conference and Luncheon that was held at the New York Hilton Hotel and Towers.
A major concern of ours at this event was the smooth and efficient movement of the 3,200 participants in such a confined space. However the presence of your staff was an essential ingredient for the orderly transition from location to location. With the four Mayoral candidates attending our morning session and former President Clinton attending our Luncheon, it was essential that we had a secure and orderly setting. The Armed Executive Protection Services that your staff performed was an integral part of the success of this function.
Again, thanks for your advice and assistance.
Assistant to the President
