SAMUEL GRIFFIN III is the founder of the Virginia-based Leumas Security Services. The business began in 1996 as Griffin’s Executive Protection Agency, handling security for presidential candidates, heads of state, and A-list celebrities. It grew into a fully staffed protection company handling a variety of security services and consultations for Fortune 500 companies, special events, shopping malls, the hospitality industry, and many others.
Born and raised in Virginia, Griffin always wanted to help keep people safe and travel around the world. He was happy to begin working on the first part of his dream - serving as a security guard - and shortly after started attending the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg. While working a special university event, he met the chief of staff for the Reverend Al Sharpton. That relationship led to an introduction to the Reverend Jesse L. Jackson, Sr. After traveling the world with Rev. Jackson for almost two years, Griffin went on to establish his own business.
Channeling his business acumen and professional expertise, Griffin wrote “Rent-A-Cop Reboot: A security pro’s lessons that could save your career, your butt, and even your life” (with Theresa M. Caldwell) in October 2020 for industry enthusiasts as well as anyone remotely considering the profession.
Griffin and his wife, Imani Harris-Griffin, have one daughter, Bella.
