Chainbridge Solutions was born out of a tragedy and the passion to prevent such a thing from happening again.

Our story began out of a passion for people’s safety.

Chainbridge President and CEO Aarti Smith is a Virginia Tech Hokie, and the tragedy that took place on April 16, 2007 had a profound impact on her and the way she viewed security. It led her to question how senseless tragedies such as this could have been prevented and those 32 lives spared.

These questions were still on her mind in 2010 when a new career opportunity presented itself and from it, Chainbridge Solutions was born. What began as a business focused on personnel security has since expanded, but kept people at the core – making lives safer, productive and enjoyable.
