Steven Collins

President and Founder
Welcome to Black Ice Security and Consulting. Regardless of the reason for your visit, I hope you will find the website informative and simple to find what you need. We have narrowed our focus over the years. Today, our primary focus is on providing the most excellent service possible to our high net-worth clients, all with specific needs – none are the same and all evolve over time.

With nearly 20 years as President and Owner of Black Ice Security Services, Inc. and with 22 years Naval Service (most of that as a Navy SEAL [Retired Master Chief]), I have been fortunate to face and overcome many challenges in leadership and problem solving while under pressure and in operational environments. During these two careers, I have traveled extensively throughout the world and have been fortunate to have had some extraordinary experiences. Some of which some were extremely fun and others extremely…educational. I have an experiential understanding of people in our world, and have acquired a Master’s Level Craftsmanship in the art of protection and security. Each client and challenge presents a new opportunity to craft a special, one-of-a-kind protection support in motion.

While this description may seem exotic (at times it is), the reality is that much of the work is routine and requires management discipline and attention to detail with a focus on ever changing needs. What I provide first is an understanding of your needs. Then I match superbly talented, Masters of Protection and Security, selected to meet the client’s needs and personality. Together we create a plan and execute that plan, revising as needed.

If you want to better understanding of what we offer, call me. I will listen, question and tell you what I think. I then recommend an approach with Black Ice or steer you in another direction. If we can be of service, I look forward to meeting with you and providing superb individuals that are skilled artisans of their craft.
