Jason Ayala, Operations Manager, Los Angeles, California
Jason is originally from Houston, Texas. He joined the United States Army in 2004 where he became a specialist in physical security and combat operations.
Following his enlistment, Jason began looking for a career with a company where he could use his military training and skills. He came to the G4S Los Angeles office and understood that G4S would be a good fit.
Jason started with G4S in 2010 as a Custom Protection Officer with a large banking industry account. He had an opportunity to go into different client sites and learn quickly about the security industry from the inside out. Within two months, Jason was promoted to Field Supervisor and then to Area Supervisor. Jason was in charge of about 50 diverse security officers in that role.
Jason became the Operations Manager for the Los Angeles office in 2011, and manages all accounts for the area. This includes recruiting, account management, day-to-day operations, compliance with all contracts and much more.
“As big as this company is, it still feels like a family … we all help each other here. With G4S you get out what you put into it, if you make an effort your get rewarded,” he said.
Jason’s best advice to anyone looking for a career with G4S is to, “Give 110 percent to the company, work hard and do the best job you can. In the end you will be recognized.”
