New Hampshire man leading teams in helping evacuate civilians from Israel amid unrest

A New Hampshire organization called Global Rescue is leading teams in helping evacuate civilians from the Israeli war zone.

Dan Richards, founder and CEO of Global Rescue, has five operation centers across the world including one in NH with getting people out of harm’s way.

The organization has been helping people for more than a decade with medical services, evacuations and security services.

“We all come to work every day with a singular purpose: to be there for our members when it matters most. Our personnel are among the world’s most skilled professionals and our medical and security teams are staffed and led by combat-experienced military special operations veterans,” said Richards.

As of Monday night, Richards said 34 individuals had been rescued and several dozen more are in the process. Vehicles such as Global Rescue’s four armored convoys have managed to get clients to the airport since the renewed fighting broke out.

Prior to founding Global Rescue in 2004, Richards spent a decade in the private equity and financial services industries. He is a graduate of Middlebury College and received his MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College where he has served as an entrepreneur-in-residence.
