About Fred Fong C.A., B. Comm.
Prior to becoming engaged initially by the United Protection Security
Group Inc. as a special advisor and consultant to the President, Fred was
involved in the security alarm industry for 15 years as a Principal, CFO and
Executive Vice President of VOXCOM Incorporated. During that time he was
involved in all aspects of the business development, including over thirty
acquisitions, major public financings and design of the business models that
resulted in producing one of the largest alarm monitoring companies in Canada
with over 100,000 subscribers.
As an advisor and consultant to UPSG, initially his mandate included the
development of the business plan for UPSG's entry into the electronic
surveillance and video monitoring security field, as well as enterprise
resource planning (ERP) with respect to UPSG's business model involving
acquisitions and organic growth strategies.
The depth of his knowledge and business experience, both as a Chartered
Accountant and as a professional business practitioner will add depth to the
Board on matters of significant relevance to the future growth of the company
in the areas of mergers and acquisitions and in its strategic planning
initiatives for organic growth.

opportunity to UPSG in its continued growth plans.
