Jacob Turner

Rovers Security owner Jacob Turner

President

I began working with Richard Yoerk and Express Personnel in 2001 as a key leader in business development. In 2003 I took over the day to day management and development for Rovers Security, a subsidiary of YS2 Group, the parent company of Express Personnel and Rovers Security. In May of 2007 I formed a new company named RS Managements Services Co., which for that year managed all of Rovers Security’s event accounts. In the beginning of January 2008 RS Management Services Co. purchased Rovers Security Co.

Prior to Rovers Security, I served 3 ½ years in the United States Army National Guard where I applied discipline and motivation in my role as Squad Leader. Security experience was obtained through various field and garrison security details. Later I worked in sales both outside and in, then became the General Manager of a modeling agency, putting to use my management skills as well as sales and customer service.

I have worked closely with the Oregon Department of Public Security Standards and Training to insure that all Rovers Security officers are certified and trained as required by the State of Oregon. In addition, I have orchestrated an internal training program designed to keep our officers proficient at the state mandated skills, as well as offering new skills in customer service and numerous situational trainings developed to teach skills in handling threats and natural disasters.

I was born and raised in Portland Oregon, graduated from Benson High School attended Mt. Hood Community College and Portland Community College.

Eric Bjork

Human Resource Manager

I am an Oregon native that grew up in the rural town of Newberg, about 30 minutes west of Portland. At the age of 10, I moved to Gladstone, OR where I attended middle school and high school, graduating in 1996. Upon graduation, I attended Oregon State University, where I studied both business administration and Japanese language. I decided to take a break from school in 1999 and found myself working various jobs, eventually finding my way into the restaurant industry. I worked as a server and assistant manager with different companies in Oregon, California and Washington, and have been working in that industry since 2001. In 2008, with some encouragement from my wife, I decided to finish my college education, so I enrolled at Portland State University where I studied Human Resource Management, earning my Bachelor's Degree in 2011.

I began working at Rovers in early 2012 as part of an internship to gain some real-world experience in the HR field. I returned to Rovers in 2013, and assumed the role of Human Resource Manager. I have been with the company ever since, and consider myself lucky to be part of such a wonderful team!

I am a huge sports fan and am very passionate about the Portland Trailblazers. I grew up idolizing Clyde, Terry, Jerome and the rest of the Blazers and have followed them closely through the years (even the bad ones). I love to enjoy the outdoors with my wife and kids so you might find us on the slopes of Mt. Hood in the winter or playing some disc golf in the summer.

Kyle Williams

Field Manager

I graduated high school in 2004 and began my working life by joining the U.S. Navy. I served as a parachute rigger aboard the U.S.S. Kitty Hawk (cv-63) in Yokosuka, Japan. Upon completion of my tours, I returned home to Portland, Oregon. I began work as a supervisor with an exterior building maintenance company in 2007. During that time I was responsible for 3 different crews of 4 individuals. I heard about Rovers Security from a friend in 2009, and have been with the company ever since.

I was raised in the south with strong southern values. During my time in the Navy, I learned that through teamwork, success is inevitable. One of my mottos’ is: We succeed as a team or we fail as a team. Adaptability and being able to overcome obstacles is one of my strong points, and is a necessity to work at Rovers Security. No matter how unique our clients’ needs are, we will succeed through our teamwork and communication.

Phillip Peterson

Supervisor

I come from a military family background. I started working providing customer service when I was 16 working as a cashier through Center Plate at the formally known P.G.E. Park. In 2005 I started working temp jobs through Express Personnel, I worked a bunch of different jobs, and then was placed in an Event Staff position for Rovers Security. After working the first season as Event Staff I proved my work ethic to them and was brought on to be a licensed Officer. I have worked hard and put in lots of hours rain, snow, sun, and nights. I am one of many supervisors in this company, and have other certifications as well including my OLCC.

Team work, customer service, and communication are things we strive on and promote in this company. Since I started working for Rovers I have dedicated time, and energy into my job. I currently reside in the Portland/Vancouver area, and spend time with family in my off time.
