Chad Arruda began his career in the security industry when he enlisted in The United States Army in 2006. After completing Infantry and Airborne Schools, Chad was given orders to Fort Bragg, North Carolina for The 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division. Leaving North Carolina, Chad deployed to Afghanistan on a 16 month combat tour in 2007.
After Chad was honorably discharged from the Army in 2009, he returned home to Arizona to complete his emergency medical licensing and training certifications to become qualified as a paramedic. From there he took his combat experience and his medical training to secure a contract position at Global Integrated Security as a Protective Security Specialist/Medic in Afghanistan. In 2014 Chad was contracted by Intellegere Risk Management where he provided high-threat security protection and medical treatment for various critical infrastructures throughout Afghanistan. Chad then received his World Wide Protective Services training with Triple Canopy in 2015 but knew he had more important work to do back home.
With his wife and children in the United States, Chad decided that he needed to permanently return home to be with his family. Utilizing his security and medical background, he began to put the pieces together to build a private security company with a promise of real security for its clients. In 2016 Alexis Security Group was formed and the rest is history.
