Michael McCourt, President and CEO
Michael is not your typical security consultant. His ability to understand the unusual challenges of today's organizations, his belief that security only thrives within accepting cultures, his willingness to listen first and solve later, and his ability to work seamlessly with any level of an organization have provided the basis for more than three decades of successful security management consulting.

A requested speaker and author, Michael has addressed audiences on two continents, and virtually every major market in the United States. He was an adjunct instructor for the USDA Graduate School in Washington D.C., and a former adjunct instructor for Boston University's Corporate Education Center, where he developed and facilitated courses on leadership, team building, and negotiation skills. He is a contributing author to several books on security and crisis management, including the book, Business Security…Protect Your Business Against Threats Internally & Externally.

Recent consulting engagements include the design and development of threat assessment protocols, crisis management procedures and consequence management strategies for flagship corporations including General Dynamics, State Street Corporation, Kronos Incorporated, and Mercury Computer. A sampling of speaking engagements include the 2006 annual conference of the Transportation Research Board in Washington DC, the 2006 annual conference of the Chain Restaurant Compensation Association in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and the 2006 Advanced Employee Issues Symposium, in both Chicago and Las Vegas, sponsored by M. Lee Smith Publishers, LLC.

Michael currently serves as the director of Risk Management for APT Management, Incorporated, a leading property management firm with headquarters in Woburn, Massachusetts. He served for thirteen years as the director of the Critical Incident Stress Management Program for the Massachusetts Port Authority. He sits on the Committee for Management and Productivity for the Transportation Research Board, a division of the National Academy of the Sciences in Washington D.C. Locally, Michael served his community on the Board of Directors for the Plymouth Area Chamber of Commerce.

Professional affiliations include the American College of Forensic Examiners International, where he is Certified in Homeland Security (CHS-III), the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS), the Association of Traumatic Stress Specialists, where he is a Certified Trauma Responder (CTR), and the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD), where he served as president for three consecutive terms. He holds a BS degree in Criminal Justice from Northeastern University and a Master's degree in Public Administration from Framingham State College.

Michael's passions include karate, (he holds the rank of Renchi Dan, 6th degree black belt in Uechi Ryu Karate)…golf (despite his triple digit handicap)…and riding Harley's.
