Ricky Tran, Site Lead, Omaha, Nebraska
Ricky is a native from Omaha, Nebraska. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 2005, where he served as a heavy equipment mechanic. “The Marine Corps taught me a lot about discipline and about security,” Ricky says. He remains enlisted as a reservist.
Ricky started with G4S in 2007 as a Custom Protection Officer. He patrols a secure facility for one of the largest railroad transportation providers in the United States. In a short period, Ricky became a Shift Supervisor in charge of several officers at the site. This position gave him the opportunity to develop his skills as well as the relationship with the client.
In 2009, Ricky transferred to the dispatching center with the same railroad company. As a patrolling officer, Ricky learned the security needs of the client from the ground up. Soon after, Ricky was promoted once again to Site Lead for the dispatching center.
As the Site Lead, he is in charge of a team of 14 officers, including administrative duties such as payroll, scheduling, upgrades to the security equipment and constant contact with the client to address their ever-changing security needs.
“I like working for G4S because I feel that my hard work always pays off,” he says. In the future, Ricky would like to continue to advance his career with G4S and take advantage of any new opportunities that may come his way.
