Our Management Team

Bal Jouhal | President & CEO

Bal Jouhal is the President and CEO of The Secured Property Group. Hailing from the United Kingdom, Bal graduated from the University of Leicester with a BA (Honours) Degree in Business Administration. Since then, he’s kept busy accruing over 25 years of hands-on, varied experience in the security service industry.

Alongside a stint with the Ministry of Defence in the United Kingdom – and no it’s not as glamorous as James Bond would have you believe – Bal has worked with renowned international brands such as Proctor & Gamble, SmithKline Beecham and Rentokil Initial Security Services. In the wake of 9/11, Bal’s knowledge of aviation and port security saw him move to Canada to take up a position as Operations Manager at Vancouver International Airport.

Missing the day-to-day thrill of running his own business, Bal founded The Secured Property Group. He takes a hands-on role in liaising with clients ensuring their objectives are delivered and services reflect the high standards he expects. Under his management, The Secured Property Group is proud to have maintained the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) certification for five years running.

When not at work, Bal is a regular participant in International Security Conferences and is a long-standing member of the American Society of Industrial Security (ASIS).
