Andrew Blitch, President

Prior to taking the entrepreneurial leap of purchasing “A” Locksmith, Andrew was a City of Houston Police Officer for 7 years on patrol in one of the city’s toughest neighborhoods. He engaged in community policing to build connections with the neighborhood he served. At the same time, he had a second full time job as the Director of Security for an elite private K-12 school in Houston’s wealthiest neighborhood, River Oaks. With a one million dollar yearly security budget, he hired and led a team of 30+ armed police officers and private security guards to keep the students safe. He was also in charge of the school’s physical security including the access control system and cameras. News of his security planning spread and he helped improve school safety plans and reduce violence at campuses across Texas. He was also put in charge of the planning the physical security and traffic flow for the school’s $20 million expansion and construction project.

At various times in his career, Andrew has provided protection to high-profile individuals including a former Secretary of State, a Vice Presidential Candidate, and various CEO’s of large corporations.

Andrew’s “boots on the ground” experience with crime both in wealthy and poor areas gives him an exceptional perspective. He stays up to date on the latest crime trends, deterrence, and prevention tactics and he works hard to incorporate his knowledge in the advice he gives the clients at his locksmith business.

He is active in the Naples business community and is a graduate of the Leadership Collier Class of 2018, an intensive 8-month leadership development program formed by the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce. He is also a 2017 graduate of their Growing Associates in Naples (GAIN) program for young emerging community leaders. As a GAIN and LCF alumni he has learned about the depth of challenges facing the Naples area and has committed to finding even more ways in which he can put his knowledge and experience to work for the local community.

Andrew was born in Naples and graduated with honors from Florida Gulf Coast University in 2007 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice and a Minor in Mathematics. He graduated near the top of his class from the Houston Police Academy in 2008. Andrew has earned certificates from Homeland Security and FEMA in Weapons of Mass Destruction Awareness, Crime Prevention and Deterrence of Terrorist Acts, Active Shooter Training, and Evacuation of High-Rise Buildings and Hotels. He is a member of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, the Associated Locksmiths of America ,and the Society of Professional Locksmiths. He was also a recipient of the 2017 40 Under 40 Award from Gulfshore Business.
