people at 30 yearsIt started with a simple idea.

Mike Tucker had been a Raleigh Police Officer, the first security manager at First Citizens Bank, and a sales manager for both a security officer firm and a security technology firm. He realized that he had difficulty finding unbiased security solutions because most security firms sold products. Their focus was driven by sales of product, not solutions to problems.

In January 1988, Mike founded Risk Management Associates, Inc. His vision was a company that acted as an independent security partner for organizations in the protection of their business assets. Mike’s vision was a company founded on the principles of integrity, character, and reputation where security experts could provide unbiased, customer-focused solutions that made a positive difference.

We’ve come a long way from that first partnership operating out of a home office. We’ve moved offices three times as our needs grew and changed. We’ve added personnel with a wider variety of skills and abilities, allowing us to expand the services that we offer to our clients. We changed our name and our brand to “Protus3 Plan. Protect. Prosper.” We’ve seen changes in every facet of the security industry, from how people perceive security to changes in the relationship to technology.

What haven’t changed are our core values.

  • Be helpful. We listen and communicate clearly and directly – going the extra mile to honor commitments and produce solutions for our clients and each other.
  • Be accurate. We value our word, and live up to it always – only sharing what we know, not what we think we know. We own our mistakes and correct them with integrity.
  • Be respectful. We hold ourselves to the highest standard of professionalism in our behavior, appearance, and relationships – from the board room to the park and everywhere in between.
  • Be informed. Knowledge is power, and we actively seek and apply it – to the benefit of our careers, our company, our profession, and our clients.
  • Be invested. We love what we do. When it comes to the future of our clients, company, and careers, we are all in.

For over 30 years we at Protus3, a Risk Management Associates, Inc. company, have been here to help clients secure a path forward.
