Securitas appoints new sales director

Tom Clarke will head up sales and marketing for the specialist electronic security division of Securitas UK in Gloucester - formally the Allcooper Group.

Securitas, the security services provider which bought Allcooper in 2019 as part of its UK growth plans, said Mr Clarke's appointment will help in achieving its target to double electronic security sales by 2023.

With more than 15 years' industry experience under his belt, and having occupied senior roles at companies including Mitie, Contract Fire and Security and Reliance High Tech, the business said the appointment brings a wealth of electronic sales expertise to Securitas.

In his new role, Mr Clarke will take on the important task of leading on sales development for Securitas UK's dedicated electronic security function, which includes overseeing the Business Development, Account Management and Marketing Teams.

He said: "I am really excited to join such a well-established and highly reputable security organisation across the world. We see a fantastic opportunity to grow Securitas' electronic security offering in the UK, sharing ideas with colleagues and constantly improving our solutions. With a highly experienced team and global brand behind us, we are committed to leading the way in the industry as a world class security technology partner for our clients."

Allcooper was the first UK electronic security company acquisition made by Securitas after a six-year partnership which covered number of large and complex security projects.

Arthur Agnew, head of Electronic Security at Securitas UK said: "This is a key appointment for the electronic security division at a crucial time as we push forward with our primary objective of doubling sales by 2023.

"With a strong background in electronic security sales and marketing, Tom's addition to Securitas will help us to accelerate our growth and improve the efficiency of our sales department."
