Don has over 30 years of professional driving experience. His knowledge base includes training in pre-advance route planning, personal protection, trauma care, and Celebrity/Executive protection. This knowledge and skill are what separates them from your everyday limousine/car service company.

The DTG market is not limited to the Dallas area, with their far-reaching affiliations through the ISDA membership and other relationships developed while working in the security industry throughout the US.
Don’s education comes from ICON/ESI Celebrity Protection & Behavioral Intelligence Course, Vehicle Dynamics Institute (VDI), Solo Practitioner & Evasive/Protection Drivers courses. His medical training is from the Lone Star Medics of Fort Worth, Texas where Don received his certification as a Medic-1 in Trauma care.
He has supplied services in all slices of the profession; as lead driver for the security team of an A-List music artist on their US and Canadian tour, receiving and transferring international business personal from Mexico who needed secured transportation as well as high net worth local families and corporate executives.
His company, DTG, is licensed and commercially insured limo company in the state of Texas. Don works closely with the Reticent Group, LLC www.reticentgroup.com, and CEO Antonio Griffin.
