Alan Young is CEO of Armor Concepts LLC. Unlike many “security “experts” that you may have seen, Alan never intended to be in this position. Unfortunately, when properties that he was renovating were continually burglarized after having their doors kicked-in, he was forced to learn a quick lesson. When they could find nothing to keep thieves out of their properties, he and his brother Glenn, invented Door Jamb Armor, as a way of protecting their investments. As a father of four children, Alan quickly realized that his home was just as easy a target as the houses that he was renovating.
Alan is not a carpenter, locksmith or former police officer.
What separates Alan from other “security experts” is the fact that his expertise was borne out of necessity, frustration and concern for his family. For years, police, alarm companies, door manufacturers, apartment owners and thieves have known that kicking in a door is the easiest way to get into a house so why had no one ever developed a way to stop it? Now, after listening to thousands of customer horror stories, Alan gives regular talks to police forces and police academies on how they can help homeowners secure their homes.
When conducting interviews, Mr. Young takes a very common sense, practical approach.

Interviews are about ways to help the listener and less about Armor Concepts and its products.

Mr. Young graduated from Vanderbilt University, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree with a dual major in Organizational Development and Economics and a Masters of Business Administration from Vanderbilt’s Owen School of Management.

Following graduation, he had a brief professional football career and founded ProQuest Sports Management, a financial planning firm for professional athletes. Mr. Young sold his interest to his partner and joined Banc of America Securities as an investment banker, where he executed mergers & acquisitions and capital raising transactions. Mr. Young left BofA after eight years and began rehabbing properties. Repeated break-ins on his properties led to the formation of Armor Concepts.
