About Altor International

‘Altor’: ‘one who sustains, protects, tutors or mentors another’.

A meaning that effortlessly explains what we believe our calling to be – a calling that is achieved by providing our clients with transparent, resilient and professional services.

Altor International resulted from an evolution, whereby two highly respected, like-minded individuals from the specialised security sector, recognised the need to work together in providing a comprehensive, superior and resilient service to a select group of clientele, utilising their combined vast experience and industry knowledge operating in developing or third world environments.

Altor International was envisaged after identifying a need for a consolidated, specialised security and training provider operating on a global level with a focus on providing enhanced, resilient solutions to clients who have an ambition to, or who are operating in third world and other challenging environments.

The driving force behind Altor International comes from the industry experience and capabilities of our staff and management that have developed a reputation for excellence and service quality over a number of years in the industry.

The combination of Jared Higgins; founder of the Arcfyre Group which is globally recognised as one of the leading risk consulting and protective services firms representing an impressive client base with a global footprint and Clinton McGuire; founding partner of Dynamic Alternatives who is widely regarded as an innovator and leader in the field of specialised security services, specifically training, consultation and transference of knowledge in third world environments – creates a consolidation of expertise and experience that we believe adds unparalleled value to the specialised security industry.

This partnership brings to the table an unblemished track record with consistent growth in the industry and an absolute commitment to maintaining high standards, enabling the Altor International team to offer clients a larger portfolio of premium quality services to suit their individual needs.
