Eva brought her 20 years of industry experience to Pro-Tec in 2010. Beginning as the company’s CFO, she assumed the role of President and CEO in 2016. A champion of creating a high-level, focused vision, promoting a dynamic culture and staying ahead of industry and market changes, Eva leads the company into its next phase. As the security industry rapidly transforms from physical to virtual, Eva is responsible for guiding the short and long-term strategic planning. Under her guidance, she has assembled a strong leadership and operations team that focuses on protecting our clients’ business and security needs with the latest industry technology.

To drive the cultural and growth shifts associated with employee ownership, she implemented EOS Traction to build management team capacity and promote accountability throughout the organization.

Acting as a true open-door CEO, Eva leads the daily charge manifesting Pro-Tec’s vision of Making Our World Safer.
