NPB Founders Norman Smith, Pete Beattle, Brian Butner

Kansas City-based, NPB Companies is comprised of founders Norman E. Smith, Perrin “Pete” Beattle, Brian A. Butner and a like-minded, multi-purpose staff.

Twenty-five years ago the company was founded with less than one thousand dollars of capital, typing proposal letters to potential clients (believers) on computers at a local public library and the belief that the entertainment industry could benefit from a security company that put the fans first.


The company has matured into one of the most recognized staffing and security providers in the industry.
