International Training, Inc. Announces New Team Captain & Welcomes New Faces To Team ITI
SHACKLESFORD, VA –-(Ammoland.com)- G4S International Training, Inc. (ITI), the training division of G4S and providers of benchmark security training programs to the U.S. Government, U.S. Military and corporate America, announced several changes to the Team ITI line up today.
Team ITI Captain Rob Middaugh has made the decision to step down from his position. Effective immediately, Middaugh will pass the torch to long time team member and fellow ITI instructor, Brandon Wright.
While saying goodbye to an old friend, the team is pleased to welcome new members Cindi Thomas and Laura Torres-Reyes to the team as its first female participants.
Brandon Wright Named New Team Captain
Middaugh has chosen to step down after serving as Team Captain for the first formative year of the team’s existence. While still an active team member, Middaugh has chosen to step down at this time due to personal and professional obligations.
Middaugh reflected on his time at the helm and warmly welcomes Wright as the new Captain: “Optimism and excitement. Those are the two words that come to the forefront when I think of stepping down as Team Captain of Team ITI. I have been fortunate to be a part of this team from its genesis, but professional and personal obligations require that I step down as the Captain and welcome and assist Brandon Wright as the new Captain.”
He continues, “It is the recognition of Brandon's talents and capabilities that cause me to be optimistic and excited about the future of Team ITI. I will still be involved and will remain a team member, so hopefully I will see many of our friends and supporters out on the range.”
Upon finding out about his new title as Team Captain, Wright commented “I am very excited to be appointed the new Team Captain of Team ITI. We have an incredible group of people to represent International Training Inc. and it's my pleasure to assist them in any way I can. Whether it's in training, coaching, getting them the right equipment to get the job done or being there to support them at a major match, I'm more than ready to make it happen.”
Wright continued, “Rob Middaugh has been instrumental in doing all the ground work to get Team ITI started. I hope to continue his vision for ITI and make Team ITI the best that I can.”
Team ITI Welcomes First Two Female Teammates to its Ranks
Earlier this spring, Team ITI began its search for new team members. Many individuals applied for the chance to be a part of the elite team, but only two were chosen, and they made history as the first female members of Team ITI.
On the addition of the two new teammates, Wright said “I am truly honored to announce Team ITI’s newest members Cindi Thomas and Laura Torres- Reyes. I have watched these two women in action for well over a year now and they are exactly what we are looking for to represent ITI. Both women have served or currently serve in our U.S. Armed Forces and support ITI in our efforts. At every match, they are always carrying themselves in a very professional manner and no matter how they are shooting, they have a positive attitude.”
