"Barry Roche spent the first eight years of his career in the Royal Marines before founding his first company, which he took from start-up to market leader. In 2009, a significant increase in the profile and gravity of piracy sparked the inception of Protection Vessels International (PVI). After achieving undisputed market leadership in Maritime Security, Roche expanded the PVI model to create Protection Group International, (PGI). Roche's vision is to build a world-class Global brand as the leading trusted adviser for mitigating risk."
