Vaughan’s experience and skill set stems from six years’ service with the Australian Army in the Royal Australian Infantry Corps. During his service he conducted multiple combat operations as a marksman in Afghanistan, Timor Lesté and Australia. These operations included Close Personal Protection of Non-Government Organisations and Peace Keeping Security Operations.
After separating from the Australian Army, Vaughan began working in the Security Industry and quickly advanced in position to the Corporate Protection & Retail Security Manager with Professional Caliber Security. Interested in expanding his hostile environment experience overseas, Vaughan went on to spend two years in Afghanistan as a security consultant for the Australian Embassy in Kabul. In this role, he provided close personal protection services for Australian Diplomats, trained local security forces, and filled the position of Security Manager, liaising with Regional Security Advisors and foreign government agencies.
During this time in Afghanistan, he identified an interest in Project Management and decided it would be beneficial to undertake a Master of Business Administration (MBA) majoring in Project Management. Vaughan completed this degree with Distinction in 2018.
Most recently, Vaughan was employed by GOLDOC as the Security Operations Coordinator for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games Athletes Village. This role involved liaising with the large number of internal and external stakeholders, management of 400 on-site security officers, and the coordination of Australian Defence Force, Queensland Police, Ambulance, and Fire & Emergency Services personnel.
Upon Vaughan’s return to Professional Caliber Security he has taken on the role as the National Operations Manager and some of his key skills involve conducting in-depth risk assessments and developing the safest and most practical contingency solutions designed to mitigate identified risks to you or your business. These strategies are then executed with the least possible disruption to your business’ daily activities.
Vaughan prides himself on his professionalism and work ethic, which is why his work is always of the highest standard, and our clients are always satisfied with Professional Caliber Security’s services.
