OUR TEAM

T.C. Willis
CEO

T.C. is the CEO of KaJor Group. He is known for his competitive nature, critical thinking, attention to detail, and ability to discern and evaluate a threat quickly and decisively.


His competitive fire started at a young age as he began to excel in basketball. After playing collegiately, he went on to play professionally in the United Kingdom and Ireland. While living abroad, T.C. would have to come to grips with the September 11th attacks on the United States. After returning stateside, he sought out ways to provide his time and resources by connecting with leaders of relief fund agencies, government agencies, non-profit organizations, and groups devoted to assisting those affected.


He then shifted his time and effort towards completing his Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Education. After acquiring his Degree he quickly excelled as an Athletic and Personal Trainer. Not long after he was approached with an opportunity to return overseas as a private contractor for the Department of Defense (DoD), T.C.’s competitive fire kicked back in. He started his DoD career in logistics on a de-mining and security contract in Kabul, Afghanistan, where he received Property Management and (OPSEC) Operational Security Awareness training for civilian and military members. As a logistics manager, he was responsible for all equipment, labor, and supplies used on a Time and Materials contract. T.C. was then placed on a Personal Security Detail (PSD), and adapted quickly to the war-torn environment. He developed a passion for all the nuances involved in providing security detail, from emotional intelligence to tactical operations. After serving two years in Afghanistan he went on to provide (PSD) for government officials and dignitaries in Istanbul and Germany. After this, he served on an Embassy and Consulate contract in South Africa. He returned to the States where he worked in the Executive Protection field for various companies. As he continued to learn the industry, he began to work his way up the ladder. After a lot of focus, hard work and determination, he began the corporate climb, holding key corporate positions, and was recruited to be our CEO and we couldn't have picked a better leader.

”…there are risks in all aspects of life, just be sure to take calculated ones.” ~ T.C. Willis

 
Jeremiah Rogers
Executive Vice President

Our VP Jeremiah is a relentless competitor that works tirelessly in keeping his old school morals and values embedded into his core beliefs. Jeremiah’s competitive nature started from birth and started to flourish through sports, primarily basketball where he and our C.E.O forged their lifelong brotherhood. J.R. as most people like to call him has served a large portion of his adult life as a contractor for the Department of Defense (D.o.D). In sacrificing time away from his home and family, he has built a reputation and a talent in security, procurement, project, and country management, making him a highly-valued corporate asset. If it needs to be done and done right, then he is our soundboard to ensure that our attention to detail is unmatched. Jeremiah has served decades in various countries during times of war, turning failing projects into award-winning bids for several government contract companies. 


From Iraq to insurgents in the jungles of North Africa, Embassies, and Consulates in-between Europe and South Africa he has successfully established himself as a key member of the KaJor Group family. We rely on his extensive knowledge and his ability to understand the bigger picture as well as his ability to not only know what the client wants but also know what the client needs. J.R. has held operational positions ensuring the proper safety and security procedures for demining teams of 1000 throughout remote locations in the world. Despite having won large multi-million-dollar contracts, retaining US Army Core of Engineers as valuable clients, managing Department of State CWD (Conventional Weapons Destruction) and WPS (Worldwide Protection Services) contracts in Iraq and other locations throughout the Middle East, maintained Top Secret Clearances and acquiring a Six Sigma Green Belt. 


As he continued to grow in the industry, he also took upon himself to obtained advanced training in Facility Security Officer Course, Security Overseas Training (OSAC), OPSEC Awareness for Military Members, DoD Employees and Contractors; HTSOS – C Training (High Threat Security Overseas Seminar), International Trafficking in Arms Regulations (ITAR). This husband and father continues to work and provide as if he has never accomplished a single thing and that humbleness and relentless work ethic is one of the many things that helps separate us as an elite solution in the industry.
