A Key Component of ProTech Security

Mitchell currently heads up the Florida location of ProTech Security operations as the Director of Sales & Operations. He knows and is deeply invested in the Orlando region and has amassed nearly a decade of experience as a security solutions provider. Mitchell joined ProTech Security when the company acquired Viking Security in 2021 and has been instrumental in bringing our principles, service, and solutions to another market.

Security and service have long been a part of Mitchell’s DNA. As a former Marine, he helped Viking Security (now Protech Security in Florida) join FAVOB — the Florida Association of Veteran-Owned Businesses. FAVOB is the only Florida business organization singularly focused on advocating for and supporting veteran-owned businesses while creating opportunities for them to do business with each other, local government agencies, and for-profit supplier diversity programs.

A Distinguished Military Career

Mitchell is proud to be a veteran and had a career in the Marine Corps that most would take pride in. He first enlisted in 1999 and served admirably through early 2015. Mitchell had three primary duty stations: Camp Lejeune, N.C. with the Romeo Battery, 1st Battalion, 10th Marines (1999-2004); Recruiting Station in Atlanta, Georgia (2004-08, 2012-15); Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii (2008-12).

Mitchell had six deployments internationally during his service, and earned 10 medals of distinction.

  • Okinawa, Japan: 2000, 2002, 2010
  • Iraq: 2003, 2008
  • Afghanistan: 2011
  • Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal (2)
  • Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal (3)
  • Good Conduct Medal (5)

During his career, Mitchell had many responsibilities. He started as an artillery cannon crewman and then became a recruiter. He rose to become Staff Non-Commissioned Officer in Charge. He served as Platoon Sergeant/Battery Security Chief (2008-10) and the Battalion Local Security Chief (2010-11) — and even served as a Foreign National Advisor (2011). His last job was as a Pool Program specialist.

On a base full of military personnel, Mitchell was entrusted with overseeing security. That experience and the attention to detail required are now applied to finding perfect-fit security solutions for clients, no matter their industry or the challenge involved.
