Drew Levine, President of G4S Secure Solutions North America, Jupiter, Florida
Before G4S, Drew worked in the construction business where he suffered an accident that made him change his outlook on life. He went back to school, got a degree in Criminal Justice from Delaware County Community College and moved to Florida from his native Philadelphia.
Drew began his career with G4S in 1988 as a Patrol Supervisor in Miami. In1989, he began working in the sales department at the Miami office. In 1990, Drew was promoted to General Manager for the Fort Lauderdale office. In 1996, he became the Regional Vice President for the South Florida Region.
In 1999, his territory was expanded to the entire state of Florida. In 2003, he joined G4S’ headquarters as a Senior Vice President of Operations. In 2005, Drew was promoted to President of Security Services, and in 2008, he was given additional responsibility for the G4S Nuclear Security division and the Canada Region. His title later changed to President of G4S Secure Solutions North America.
Drew is responsible for the growth and profitability of all divisions under him. Drew’s father Murray Levine, who recently retired from G4S, has been Drew’s mentor throughout his career, guiding him to understand more about management and profitability, customer focus and employee focus.
The best advice Drew can offer to anyone looking to start a career with G4S is to: “Come in and do the best you can … try to improve any job you are asked to do, not just for G4S but for our customers as well. Whatever you do, try to be the best at it.”
Drew likes G4S because, “G4S employees are 50,000 strong in North America, our business is about people and about customers … it’s a good fit for me because I am very people oriented,” Drew said.
