He has been awarded several medals for Faithfull Service and Counter Terrorism. He is regarded as a very experienced and professional Close Protector, not only in performing the protection task, but in planning and coordinating large scale protection duties of high profile individuals. His vast back ground and specialized training courses made him a respected individual in the Close Protection Field. No individual was ever harmed under his protection; neither physically nor in integrity.
On retirement Freddie wanted to ensure that all the knowledge and experienced he gained during a very successful career did not go to waste. He established and registered EXPRO Protection Services to train and render a Professional Close Protection Service to the Private Sector, specifically in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro pole, as he identified a need for a professional individual that will be more than just another “Bodyguard”.
