Securi-Guard have strengthened the senior management team following the appointment of experienced security professional Robert Truesdale as fire and security systems manager.
Plymouth-born Truesdale – who has worked in the security business for the past 22 years – will oversee both the technical side, in terms of the installation and maintenance teams, as well as sales activities, in the fire and security division of the company.
He will also be responsible for client liaison, ensuring customer expectations are met at all times, as well as monitoring the latest technological developments in the security industry for the Plymouth-based company.
“Coming from Plymouth I was already aware of Securi-Guard’s reputation, both on a regional and national basis, and I am delighted to be part of a business which has been, and continues to be, a real success story in the industry,” said Truesdale.
“It is an opportunity to use both my technical knowledge and management experience to help further develop the fire and security division and ensure we are delivering the best possible service with the most up to date technology. I am looking forward to my new role immensely.”
Truesdale started out in the security industry as an Alarm Service Engineer. Since then he has acquired extensive experience at senior level having worked in both operational and sales management, as well as in customer support.
He also has a wide knowledge of electronic fire and security systems and considerable project management expertise too.
Away from work, Truesdale enjoys cooking, keeping up with technology and is an avid rugby watcher. He also has a professional scuba diving qualification.
Scott Boyd, Securi-Guard’s managing director fire and security, said Truesdale would bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the position, as well as being well versed in the management of a large team.
“Bob will be a key asset in the future development of the division and his considerable expertise will help us consolidate, as well as build on, our position as a leading supplier of fire and security services across the South West, and beyond,” said Boyd.
