MILFORD, Mich., Oct. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The North Group (TNG), a top-tier private security and risk management company, announced today the appointment of former US Army Ranger and current entrepreneur, actor, writer, and producer, Vincent Vargas. In this role, Vargas will facilitate growth and increase sales by leading TNG's business development, marketing, and standard operations strategy and execution.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Vargas spent his military career in the Second Battalion of the elite 75th Rangers Regiment, serving three combat deployments during his tenure. After four years of active-duty service, Vargas joined the US Army Reserves, where he continues his service. In 2009, he became a Federal Agent with the Department of Homeland Security – serving extensively on the US border – and also served as a Medic with the Special Operations Group. Today, you may recognize him as 'Gilly' on the #1 cable tv series "Mayans MC" on FX.

"TNG is proud to continue our legacy of hiring highly-experienced veterans such as Vince," said Steven Hernandez, CEO of The North Group. "He proved himself to be an asset even before he came on board when he developed a highly-robust security protocol – while on location/at a movie shoot in Mexico – that we have since implemented and expanded upon to create one of the most intensive, well-rounded protective protocols in existence. Having him as a member of our team only serves to further solidify our arsenal of highly-intelligent risk management professionals who are, quite simply, the best in the business."

Vargas added, "Since filming in Mexico, I have been closely observing security and the different mindsets in Hollywood. I felt there was a need for someone to be able to provide a more well-rounded approach to safety mitigation and risk management, which leads me to where I am today.  I am excited to be working with TNG to help them solidify and create a standard operating system for risk mitigation in high-profile scenarios like Hollywood. I hope that we can bring comfort to production companies and that high-profile individuals can get the comfort they deserve in their personal and professional lives."
