MultiBrand Media International is fortunate to enjoy a close relationship with another of The MBMI Companies’ enterprises. Valoriant Safety, LLC is a security provider and education company designed for the needs of the entertainment industry. Valoriant creates preparedness plans for radio, television and film. They concentrate on the physical layouts of studios and sets, the needs of the performers and production staffs, management and, of course, the legal team. The company provides advice to secure large concert and outdoor performance events, and, where it’s necessary, Valoriant offers close personal protection from stalkers and other bad guys.

Valoriant Safety is supervised by Thomas F. Hughes, II who served twenty-six years at the United States Secret Service. He trained agents and provided close protection for four U.S. Presidents, Vice Presidents and their families, beginning with Ronald Reagan.
