SMG, the operator of U.S. Bank Stadium, along with the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority and the Minnesota Vikings, announced today that after an extensive RFP process, Monterrey Security has been selected as the official security provider of U.S. Bank Stadium.

As the trusted provider for events ranging from the NFL Draft to the NATO Conference/G8 Summit, Monterrey Security will provide services in the areas of crowd management and 24-hour security.

“Monterrey Security is an exceptionally qualified organization,” said Michele Kelm-Helgen, chair of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority. “Monterrey has experience working with stadiums, live events and family attractions. Furthermore, this major contract being held by a minority owned company keeps our equity focus on the stadium’s operations.” 

Monterrey is the largest Latino-owned security firm in the Midwest and one of the fastest-growing minority-owned security companies in the country. Over two-thirds of their workforce is comprised of women or minorities from executive leadership to entry-level employees. 

"We are incredibly excited to serve the people of Minnesota and be a part of the team at this world-class facility,” said Monterrey Security President and CEO Juan Gaytan, Jr. “We are dedicated to providing visitors with a safe and enjoyable experience at every event we work. We also know the importance of creating opportunities for local residents – we don’t just want to give them a job, we want to help them build a career.”

“We feel Monterrey will help us build a customer-focused culture at U.S. Bank Stadium,” said Patrick Talty, General Manager for SMG at U.S. Bank Stadium. “We are excited about their passion and drive for excellence.”

Monterrey holds a high standard of excellence with employees in regard to certification and training. Individual staff for this provider hold certifications in occupational safety and health, construction safety, hazardous materials handling, crowd control management and evacuation planning. Their incredibly thorough employee training program makes them a leader in the industry.

“With our continued focus on fan safety, as well as our commitment to making every Vikings touchpoint positive and memorable, we believe Monterrey is the best choice to provide security for our games,” said Vikings Chief Operating Officer Kevin Warren. “Through the RFP process, it became evident that Monterrey shares the same ideals for fan safety and fan experience and will bring added value as a stadium partner.”

President and CEO Juan Gaytán Jr. said the company is excited and dedicated to providing a safe experience at every event. “We also know the importance of creating opportunities for local residents — we don’t just want to give them a job, we want to help them build a career,” Gaytán said.
