The Elite Story

After graduating from experience working in security and loss prevention while in college to successful careers in the banking and insurance industries, John and Gus Kontopuls founded Elite Services in 1995 with the vision of transforming the event security and staffing industry into one where people could feel safer and happier as a direct result of Elite’s vigilance and service. Elite has fulfilled this vision by building a senior team of esteemed law enforcement and public safety experts and continues to recruit people who possess the foundation of service acumen necessary to positively impact each person they encounter. Elite provides team members training that includes a variety of innovative state-of-the-art security skills necessary to be vigilant in the ever-changing environments we work in. Elite has hired and trained tens of thousands of people and has grown from providing staff for large and complex sports & entertainment venues and conferences, to providing total security and safety solutions to commercial properties, residential communities and all facilities where people congregate or where assets need protecting.
