Professional Security appoints new director

Professional Security has continued to build its management team with the appointment of Demelza Staples as Process and Transformation Director.

The new position has been created in response to Professional Security’s impressive growth over the past 18 months. Experienced in delivering change management processes and systems, Demelza has worked in senior management positions for pub company Ei Group, which was bought by Stonegate and latterly security firm, SSGC.

She said: “I am delighted to be joining Professional Security at this exciting time in its journey, which has seen it successfully expand into new sectors. The vision for the business and the way in which it seeks to create a thriving and rewarding place to work, was something that I very much wanted to be part of.

“Professional Security has also recognised the strength of having effective processes in place and has invested in state of the art digital systems. I look forward to making sure the technology is optimised and seamlessly integrated across the teams, so we deliver the very best responsive service in these fast changing times.”

Based near Leeds in a new 9,000 sq ft head office, featuring a 24/7 high-tech control room, Professional Security has a team of over 8,000 qualified security professionals across the UK.

Professional Security’s CEO, Dave Fullerton, said: “We want to be the best and to achieve that we need to attract the best talent, so are delighted to have Demelza join our senior management team. Her change management and systems management expertise, working for a blue chip company within hospitality and also security, is just what we need as we focus on our ambitious growth plans and desire to deliver an outstanding security experience for our clients.”
