Showsec has made another key appointment to its management team as the event security specialist gears itself up for a year of continued growth and prosperity.
The announcement that Michael Paul has joined the company as area manager for the West of Scotland is a further sign of progress in the early stages of 2014 and follows on from the launch of a highly significant restructuring of Showsec’s London operation.
Paul has taken up a prominent position north of the border where Showsec has quickly established a strong presence since this office opened in 2009.
“The company enjoyed another record-breaking year in 2013 and the Scotland office played an important part in that achievement to continue its steady growth since coming into operation,” stated Mark Harding, Showsec’s managing director.
“A crucial element of our success across the United Kingdom has been the development of a management infrastructure possessing the skills, operational expertise and industry experience to deliver the highest standard of service to our clients.”
Harding added: “With another exciting year in prospect, we have identified areas where strengthening that infrastructure will help us to continue moving forwards. We believe that Michael will prove to be a valuable addition to our team.”
Industry experience across many sectors
Scott Anderson, Showsec’s regional manager for Scotland, commented: “I’m delighted to welcome Michael to the company. Along with his extensive local knowledge, he brings industry experience from a wide range of sectors.”
Anderson stated: “Michael’s appointment marks a key development in our regional progression and allows us to confidently expand our operation safe in the knowledge that we have a regional management infrastructure capable of delivering excellence.”
Originally from Inverness, Paul has gained much of his experience with SecuriGroup since starting out as a part-time door supervisor.
Having operated in the Aberdeen and Glasgow areas over the past eight years, he’s now relishing the opportunity to further his career.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to be handed such an important role in the development of the Scotland office,” said Paul.
“The chance to work on larger scale events, especially the music festivals in the summer, is particularly exciting.”
