Golden Seal Enterprises


Company Profile

Golden Seal Enterprises (GSE), a veteran-owned small business headquartered in Winchester, VA has been providing security assessments, training, and personal protective services on land and sea worldwide for over two decades.

Company History

Golden Seal Enterprises, Inc. (GSE) was founded in 1992 with a single goal: to provide the most comprehensive, up-to-date, and professional protective security and training services in the business today.  The company owner, Mr. Frank Yurkovich spent the previous 19 years training, teaching, and providing these security services to the U.S. Government, State Department-approved governments, and the private sector.

Mr. Yurkovich’s continued recognized success of providing high quality security services with total focus on “attention to detail” and “complete client satisfaction,” prompted numerous additional requests for expanded security services and training of the same type.  As the requests continued to increase, Mr. Yurkovich expanded GSE to a core team of personally selected, highly qualified and extensively skilled security professionals to manage these new opportunities to further grow Golden Seal Enterprises.

GSE’s continued success stems from recognizing the most basic and fundamental requirement of hiring quality, well-trained and experienced personnel with the highest degree of integrity, who are professionally loyal, motivated, skilled and competent.  Our business model is designed to maximize our client’s satisfaction by tailoring our solutions to meet their needs while minimizing the impact on their lifestyles.

We value and treat every client and every opportunity we pursue as our most important project or mission.  Our business depends on maximizing our client’s satisfaction by tailoring our solutions to meet their needs, while minimizing the impact on their lifestyles and we will not settle for anything else.  GSE’s business will only continue to succeed and grow with repeat business from our clients, referrals and by maintaining a stellar professional reputation, based on time-proven methods and performance in the security business.

Customized Solutions Tailored to Each Client.

Company Culture

GSE employs professionals from diverse academic and professional backgrounds. They are trained facilitators, managers and consultants. Our security professionals are well versed in culture, etiquette and the corporate environment.  They recognize the trust and confidence given to them and strive to leave a positive, lasting impression with the client.

GSE learned early on that one of our most successful attributes in the ever evolving security business stemmed from having our security professionals not only providing and managing our security services in the field, but then rotating our security team members back to the classroom to teach and mentor other security professionals.  This GSE business practice has proved invaluable in keeping our security professionals up-to-date on the newest methods, technology, and techniques.

Honesty. Professionalism. Integrity. Humility. Recognition.

Community Involvement

We believe that being an active member of our community is not just a privilege, but a responsibility. That’s why we’re committed to giving back in every way we can. From sponsoring local events to volunteering our time and resources, we strive to make a positive impact on the people and places that make our community so special.

We know that when we support each other, we all thrive. That’s why we prioritize working with local vendors and suppliers whenever possible, and we go the extra mile to create a welcoming environment for all who visit us.
