Adir Rafael began his career in the security and defense industry in 2008 when he joined the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). Adir served as a tank commander. During his service, his unit deployed to more than five fronts protecting all Israeli borders, installations and facilities. Adir retired as a staff sergeant and was awarded numerous combat awards during his service.
Shortly after his retirement, Adir was recruited to the Israeli Security Agency (Shin Bet) as a special agent and participated in numerous operations protecting Israeli officials and facilities. In 2014, Adir joined the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs and was appointed to secure the Israeli Consulate in New York and its Mission to the United Nations. During his service, he was also responsible for the personal protection of Israeli Ambassadors, delegates and officials.
Upon his retirement from the Israeli Government, Adir decided to utilize the skills gained throughout his career and joined a consulting firm to supervise the security operations of a number of large private organizations that sought to reinforce their security arrangements in the Greater New York Area.
