SGW appoints new security consultant with top level UK background

UAE – SGW Safety & Security has appointed Alan Meyrick to the position of Security Consultant.

A skilled security practitioner with 14 years’ experience, Mevrick’s knowledge of risk and security methodologies and theories provides a robust underpinning to the consultancy work he undertakes, allowing him to deliver risk-based projects across numerous environments and sectors.

He has successfully transitioned his own roles, focusing on delivering risk assessments and risk analysis products for transnational clients, and providing and supporting fee-paying consultancy work in the sports and leisure, services, financial and petrochemical industries.

Areas of expertise include the application of Risk Management and the Risk Assessment cycle (ISO 31000), Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED), Situational Crime Prevention paradigms and Counter-Terrorism strategies.

In previous years he has managed two onsite teams, recruiting and replacing staff, ensuring 24/7 coverage, compliance with Health and Safety legislation, front-of-house client interaction and liaison with senior management and emergency services. He also has experience working within criminological research and security consultancy for the UK Home Office and the UK’s Security Industry Authority (SIA), with bespoke consultancy work and wider research into risk mitigation practices.

Most recently, Alan has spent the last few years working on varied international projects surrounding his extensive knowledge and experience of Threat and Risk Assessments (TARA), prior to his move to SGW.

Commenting on SGW’s Appointment, Simon Whitehouse, Managing Director at SGW said: “Alan brings a strong academic, analytic and research based capability in Security & Risk Management to SGW. I’m delighted that he has selected SGW to further develop and strengthen his career as a security professional. His track record and longevity of career working for G4S, one of the world’s largest providers of security services, will enhance our capability in security risk management and strategy development, across EMEA regions.”
