Corps Security has appointed Andy Topp as its new sales director. Topp will work with executive director Mark Rogers and the rest of the senior leadership team to broaden the company’s approach and develop new market sectors, and particularly those interested in a more ethical approach towards procurement now that Corps Security is a social enterprise.

I now look forward to helping to grow the organisation and increase its positive impact on the local communities in which it works.”
