Stephan Crétier: Founder, Chairman and CEO of GardaWorld

Stephan Crétier is Founder, Chairman and CEO of GardaWorld, the world’s largest privately owned security company.

Stephan knows all about risk and reward. In 1995, he sold his car and took out a second mortgage to start the company. Since then, he’s faced bankruptcy four times, nearly losing his home in the process. But thanks to Stephan’s incredible entrepreneurial spirit, the company today is worth more than $10 billion.

In this episode we’ll talk about Stephan’s early years as a baseball umpire, his illicit high school business, and the number of fugitives on the island of Montreal.
