Creating Exposure to Generate New Security Customers

Global Guardian's Objective

Global Guardian’s executive team recognized the need for a robust public relations campaign to position them as thought leaders in the duty of care industry and to highlight the work they were doing in an effort to grow their business.

Pinkston's Approach

Since January of 2022, Pinkston has strategically focused on increasing Global Guardian’s coverage with national, international, regional and niche trade audiences. Pinkston worked to position Global Guardian as an industry leader in major media outlets like Fox News, Bloomberg, BBC World News, the Wall Street Journal, NPR, Yahoo!, the Hill and more. Global Guardian’s CEO has been featured on “Fox & Friends”, “Mornings with Maria”, “The Claman Countdown”, CNN International’s “First Word with Julia Chatterley” BBC’s “Business Daily” and NPR.

As a part of this effort Pinkston created a comprehensive media relations strategy, messaging documents for all Global Guardian spokespeople and has provided the executive team with media training and spokesperson development.


In the first 9 months, Pinkston’s media campaign has resulted in more than 70 media interviews that resulted in more than 650 earned media placements through the country and abroad.
