John Timar Joins Anjin Secure Car

                Anjin Secure Car Adds John Timar as Strategic Advisor


Houston, TX: Today, Anjin Secure Car, a provider of secure transportation for international business travelers, announced that John Timar has joined Anjin Secure Car as a Strategic Advisor. John has joined to advise on sales and marketing to help carry the momentum from the explosive growth in Mexico into Latin America and Africa.  John Timar is a recognized industry leader in technology and security sales and marketing.

On the addition of John to Anjin Secure Car, CEO Michael Woodrum said, “There isn’t anyone else more qualified to help us articulate the value of providing international travelers with a way to purchase security services on travel websites.  John has a long history of advising companies, and government agencies on how to do business safely overseas and he has tremendous experience in selling technology products.  We have a goal to protect every single traveler and John is key to achieving that goal.”

“Using local security companies for secure transportation is a regular practice in many parts of the world.  Trips are typically brokered through large international security companies and are cost prohibitive for the average traveler.” However, John continued to emphasize, “Anjin is democratizing the access to these professionals through a technology platform, which is a total game changer.  For the first time ever, consumers, business travelers, and travel management companies can easily access and book secure transit with providers traditionally reserved for senior executives and wealthy people.”    

John is the Vice President of Sales for TerraGo, a venture capital-backed software company providing mobile SaaS products for Smart Cities and GIS applications.  Prior to Terrago, he was the business practice leader at Eurasia Group, a predictive analytics company, and co-founder of Control Risks Government Services which provided protection to corporate and government executives in war zones and failed states.  John served as a Navy SEAL and holds a Master of Public Policy from the University of Chicago.

About Anjin Secure Car:  Anjin Secure Car gives travelers to Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East with the ability to book secure ground transportation on the same websites and apps they use to purchase flights and hotels.  Instead of booking a car service or ride-sharing service with an unvetted driver, Anjin Secure Car puts travelers in vehicles driven by security experts.  Founded by former U.S. military veterans and transportation technology experts, Anjin Secure Car is enabling all travelers to have the same level of international security afforded to CEOs at prices comparable to car services.
