Founded Magnus Security shortly after becoming a licensed Private Patrol Operator authorized by the state of California Bureau of Investigative and Security Services (BSIS) in 2013. When Mr. Oliver founded Magnus Security, he relied on his background as an enlisted member of the United States Army, along with his experience managing and directing large private security corporations across California, and the state of Nevada.
In 2013 Mr. Oliver recognized that there were many voids left open in the contract security market by his competitors. Recognizing the industry's shortcomings, and having developed the solutions to them throughout his career; Marques launched Magnus Security to provide a service to those in need of a professional, reliable, and responsive security service. Mr. Oliver has over 10 years’ experience of business management within the private security industry.
In 2001 he attended West Virginia University as an undergraduate. Following the terrorist attacks on September 11th Marques enlisted in the United States Army, where he joined 1/201st-FA battalion as a fire direction control specialist while still enrolled in College. Mr. Oliver would later have the honor to serve his country during an 18 month combat deployment to Iraq in support of OIF II & III where he conducted combat operations. Immediately after being honorably discharged from active duty Mr. Oliver resumed his studies at Fairmont State University where he focused on business administration. After completing his coursework Mr. Oliver accepted the position of Director of Operations with Green Valley Security in Las Vegas, NV. From there, Mr. Oliver would have the opportunity to lead multiple large private security corporations in both California, and Nevada. These opportunities and experiences have provided Mr. Oliver the ability to learn and experience, and execute various proven business models across different market sectors with great success.
In January of 2014, Marques was selected by the State of California’s Bureau of Security and investigative Services (BSIS) as a Subject Matter Expert, in which he helped to re-write and modify the stringent requirements, and examinations needed for all future private security licensees in the State of California, and remains as a security consultant for the State of California bureau of Consumer Affairs. Magnus Security has the advantage of Mr. Oliver's experience, expertise and exceptional leadership skills. With addition to the support of an intimate network of current and retired peace officers, and private security industry leaders Magnus Security is sure to deliver a true professional experience for its clients.
