The “Invictus” PICO-DA in Kryptek Highlander will be on the TYR Tactical site in the near future and available through Invictus Alliance Group along with a series of products in the Krytek Highlander pattern.
Invictus Alliance Group, LLC and Northern Red Inc have announced a “Joining of Forces” but have not disclosed what this actually means. My take is that there is no formal business arrangement such as a joint venture or merger, but rather that the two companies tend to complement one another so they will share clients based on the task at hand. Both are great companies and I’d say, based on the current environment, they’d be in a better position working together, rather than competing.
Raleigh, NC – January 1, 2013 – The elite combat-proven training, high-risk security and intelligence capabilities of two leading companies have been brought together to deliver critical services to the private and government industries.
Invictus Alliance Group Founders and former 1st SFOD-D (Delta Force) members Tom and Scot Spooner started the company in 2010 and have since successfully delivered tactical training and experiential leadership courses to elite organizations making Invictus a sought-after brand and delivery partner.
“Our integrity as a company is our most valuable asset, it’s something we are unwilling to throw away for short-term monetary gains. We are only interested in attracting the right members to our team and in turn, attracting the right kind of customers for our services. We’re not a transactional service provider, we’re focused on the mutual benefit of long-term relationships with our customers. We are their trusted advisors,” said Scot Spooner.
In early 2012 Invictus Alliance Group began a collaborative relationship with Northern Red Inc., a specialized training and high-risk security company based in Philadelphia, PA, co-founded by former Special Forces Green Beret J.D. Potynsky, CEO, and business consultant, Heath Durrans.
The two companies soon realized their shared vision, values and incessant strive for quality that has resulted in this formal “joining of forces” that will increase delivery capability and subject matter expertise in the following areas:
- Government Support Services
- Special Operations Training
- Crisis Management
- High-Risk Security
- Intelligence Operations
Tom Spooner observed, “The industry is full of very talented one-man shows who are all making a good living and providing a great product, but no single person posses the influential power to affect the necessary change and training standardization in the industry. However, by integrating Northern Red’s Special Operations experience together with Invictus’s, I strongly believe we have the ability to make significant positive change in the way Military and Law Enforcement units and private clients perform their training.”
J.D.. Potynsky points out, “Invictus is in the business of challenging the training status quo, asking the hard questions, doing what they say can’t be done, and establishing updated and relevant standards in every aspect of the industries we operate in. I’m excited to be part of this success story and to take on the responsibility to drive the strategic vision of making Invictus a world-class training services leader and innovator.”
Invictus Alliance Group, LLC is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business based in Raleigh, NC, and provides Special Operations Training and Critical Infrastructure Consulting Services to private and government sector clients.
Northern Red Inc., is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business based in Philadelphia, PA, and provides tactical training, high-risk security and intelligence operations to private and government sector clients.
This is a preview of NRA Life of Duty Patriot Profiles – Broken & Undone: “To be an American.” It features the story of Tom and Scot Spooner, Army Special Operations Veterans and founders of Invictus Alliance Group.
“It’s pretty damn amazing to be an American.”
Scot and Tom, the more I know you, the more I like you. Scot’s opening comments in this video about being an American very much parallel my own feelings over the past few years as I came to grips with being a civilian. It was great to hear something similar from him. Thank you. Thank you both.
I’ve watched most if not all of the Patriot Profile series but at least from this trailer, this one touches me the most. The full feature will deal with PTSD and that’s one thing I don’t deal with but many of my friends do. It’s important that we all begin to learn about it.
Invictus Alliance Group’s Magnus Johnson is their man on the ground at Rock Castle Center. In between Battlefield to Boardroom classes he is offering pistol, carbine and AK courses as well as customized training solutions. Magnus is a Special Forces Veteran and the class rates are very reasonable.
The guys at Invictus Alliance Group Inc have started a blog. It includes even more info on their Boardroom to Battlefield program. Check it out.
You may have already heard about Scot and Tom Spooner and their new training company Invictus Alliance Group. But, you probably haven’t heard about their other day job, Labyrinth Guides Consulting. The concept is simple and they lay it out in this statement, “Take combat proven military experience, including leadership, team work, decision making, deliberate and contingency planning, and coalesce this information into the proper format, tone and delivery…”
You can read all about Scot and Tom’s backgrounds on the website and it’s pretty amazing having both served in Special Forces as well as a selectively manned unit. Invictus is already out there making their name by providing some great training but we thought that Labyrinth Guides Consulting might might pique the curiosity of our industry readers. You see, they provide some very specialized leadership training unavailable anywhere else. And while this training might be very enticing for those on Wall Street or other large industries, it seems custom built for the tactical industry.
In their flagship course, entitled “Battlefield to Boardroom” not only is there some extensive shooting as well as confidence and team building exercises, they also offer unprecedented access to veteran special operations personnel. During these sessions, combat veterans will provide leadership pointers and put them into the context of their real world experiences.
This is exactly the kind of experience that many companies have been asking us about. Not everyone in the firearms or tactical industries has military or law enforcement experience and this is a great way to get a glimpse at how the user community rolls. Additionally, companies often want to sponsor training opportunities for employees whether on an individual basis or as teams. Either of Labyrinth Guides Consulting’s current offerings; Boardroom to Battlefield or the shorter Black Ops Experience can be used either way. Additionally, they will custom develop an experience specifically for your needs. In their own words:
“The dated industry standard of one-sided leadership lectures, canned workshops, and 3-day seminars make unrealistic attempts to fit all business models, teams and leaders into rigid pre-cast molds. We strongly believe that the â€œone size fits allâ€ approach to executive consulting is inefficient and inadequate. Labyrinth Guides use a customized approach to understand an organization’s unique needs, which enables us to formulate training and consulting interactions with pin point accuracy.”
Labyrinth experiences take place through a formal partnership with the 2,000 acre Rockcastle Shooting Center and Park Mammoth Resort in Park City, Kentucky.
Class sizes are 8 – 12. The next Boardroom to Battlefield experince is 30 January to 3 February, 2012. Be there…
