Hansford brings a wealth of experience in both the sales and installation of fire and security systems after spending 24 years in the security business.
In his new role at Securi-Guard, Hansford will primarily develop new business among electrical contractors, architects and consultants – identified as key target areas for development.
Hansford,41, also sees a major part of his role as promoting awareness of the many benefits and services that a local, independent company like Plymouth-based Securi-Guard can offer.
He believes passionately in the values of professionalism and delivering the very best in customer service, part of the reason he was attracted to working for Securi-Guard – a family business and the largest independent fire and security solutions provider in the South West.
“This is a golden opportunity for me, the chance to work for an established total solutions provider with a tremendous reputation in the industry,” said Hansford.
“I will be looking to play my own part in the Securi-Guard success story and help build lasting relationships with an exciting new client base.
“The Securi-Guard brand is a very strong one within the industry and therefore this is a role I am both excited about and extremely confident of delivering on.”
Prior to his new role, Jim spent almost ten years as a Fire Systems Consultant with ADT Fire and Security, covering Devon and Cornwall, so he has an extensive knowledge of Securi-Guard’s core area.
He has also worked for a number of other security firms as an installation and service engineer and has completed a number of industry specific training programmes related to health and safety assessments and fire detection and design.
Mark Bostick, sales manager –fire and security systems at Securi-Guard said Hansford’s appointment was a key element in developing news areas of business for the company’s range of products and services for fire and security.
“Jim places great importance on first class customer service and has integrity and a level of professionalism that I am sure will make him a real asset to the company.
“I wish him every success in his new role and look forward to a period of continued growth in the fire and security division.”
