I have known Andy Bannon of Metroguard for approximately twenty years during which time we have built up a really good working relationship. We met when I was the Manager of a Bar that Andy used to be an exclusive security contractor for in Covent Garden London. Andy is a very honest, reliable, respectable, knowledgeable and outgoing person and is an excellent communicator.
Over the past twenty years, Andy has assisted me in ensuring that all of the companies I have worked with have remained safe & secure at all times. Over the last 9 years we have worked together at Lucky Voice, where I am the Operations Director. His assistance, strategic skills and understanding of the business & our venues in the various regions around the UK has proven to be very important in which his communication skills have been used to full effect.
During his time here Andy & Metroguard have proven to be a great asset to the business, Andy and his team are punctual, professional, helpful and always a pleasure to work with. He has always believed in leading by example, since day one working with this concept he has shown huge amounts of dedication to ensuring the security of the venues, he is a great team leader and he appreciates the many issues we are faced with when operating karaoke and bar venues on a day to day basis.
My staff and other customers of his that I know are always quick to comment on Andy’s politeness and professionalism and I’ve yet to come across anyone who has a bad word to say about him.
Not only do I trust Andy as a friend but I also know that I can always rely on him from a business point of view when needed.
His sense of humour and confident personality will be of great benefit to any future company thinking of utilising his services and I have no hesitation in recommending his character and work ethic to anyone considering employing him.
