Previous Country President, Brian Riis Nielsen, officially handed over to Kennedy at Securitas UK’s annual leadership conference on 23 May, and now moves on to a new group management position in Securitas AB.
Kennedy is an experienced leader with a proven track record in the security industry. After leaving the British Army in 1997 Kennedy joined Chubb Security, where he spent 15 years, until it was acquired by Securitas in 2011.
Since 2011, Kennedy has held several senior management positions including Chief Operating Officer UK and more recently Director of Specialist Protective Services. He has also been responsible for the successful implementation of Securitas’ Fire & Safety strategy across Europe.
Commenting on his new role, Kennedy said “Having spent over 20 years working in the security industry, I feel privileged to be taking over responsibility of the UK business at such an exciting time.
“Securitas UK will continue to go from strength to strength, offering better safety and security to our clients through a combination of outstanding Security Officers and a more innovation and data-driven approach.”
