Neil Archer, General Manager for G4S Secure Solutions Mississauga

Neal was born and raised in Sarnia, Ontario. He attended the University of Western Ontario where he graduated with a degree in Sociology with a minor in Criminology. In 2004, Neal started working with G4S, as a armoured car driver for G4S Cash Solutions (Canada). (A division that was sold in 2014.) From there, Neal worked in several different roles with the Cash Solution business unit, which gave him an exceptional level of experience and insight into the cash transport and security business.

In 2008, Neal was promoted to Road Supervisor. In this role, he was responsible for nearly 400 employees and millions of dollars being transported by G4S. In 2010, Neal was promoted to Service Manager, where his responsibilities grew to include other Road Supervisors.

In 2014, after the sale of the Cash Solutions business, Neal transitioned to a new role with G4S, as the Operations Manager for the Mississauga branch. Neal was promoted to General Manager for the branch in 2015. As the General Manager, Neal is responsible for almost 1000 employees, and he is also ultimately responsible for the profitability of his branch. In this time, Neal has been working closely with his staff and senior management to ensure that the operations and the sales portion of the organization are clearly aligned and our customers are satisfied.

Neal told us, “G4S is a very fair employer, and there are great opportunities to grow. I have recommended G4S to several members of my family and friends. Your future career with G4S is really determined by yourself. There is a lot of training and opportunities to better yourself, all you have to do is be willing to take them. I am a direct result of it”.
