Comsec Consulting Global entrusts UK growth with security industry specialist, selecting a Commercial Director based on track record of growing EMEA security services within expanding companies

LONDON, UK, 3rd November 2008 —Comsec Consulting Global, a leading information security consulting firm, today announced the company’s appointment of Robin Hollington as Commercial Director for the United Kingdom market. He will be driving the overall business strategy, sales and marketing for Comsec’s growing enterprise services in the UK.

“We are delighted to have found and hired Robin,” said Nissim Bar-El, CEO, Comsec Consulting Global. “With his enthusiasm and experience backed up by a dedicated team of professionals here in EMEA, we can be sure of his whole-hearted approach to the development of Comsec’s growth in the UK.”

Hollington brings almost 10 years security advisory and business development experience to Comsec Consulting. Previously, Robin supported an e-security start-up business as Head of Business Development, prior to joining PeaPod, where he was responsible for growing their nascent Consulting Business. Robin spent six years in this role, where he more than quadrupled both the size of the business and its turnover.

Following PeaPod’s merger with Global Secure Systems (GSS), a security consultancy and solution provider, Robin was appointed as Director of Consulting Services. In this role, Robin determinedly presented a new breed of consultants across PeaPod’s and GSS’s existing and prospect customer base, offering a focused approach to determine and solve its customers security issues. This approach led to the consulting practice growing by 40% and 97% respectively in the first two quarters of 2008.

Robin Hollington spent 20 years as a Royal Marines Officer. Whilst serving as a General List officer and completing his share of operational tours he completed a Degree in Systems and Management, a Postgraduate Degree in the Design of Information Systems, attended the RAF Staff Course and co-authored the Royal Navy's e-Business and the Tri-Service m-Business Strategies

“I’m delighted to be working with one of the world leaders in information security consultancy, one that is clearly the largest independent, “pure play” consultancy in Europe,” said Robin Hollington, Commercial Director, Comsec Consulting UK Limited. “Having had a successful spell growing, and building the profile of my previous companies’ security services within the market place, I look forward to facing a similar challenge here at Comsec. Previously I have developed services across the whole spectrum of Information Security, though sometimes the delivery has pushed the consultant’s capabilities to breaking point. At Comsec, I have seen in the 140 or more consultants that the delivery has real depth across the whole range of services, a result of more than 20 years experience. Not many others can claim that level of knowledge and understanding.”

Robin is a member of the Institute of Directors and the British Computer Society and is a Chartered IT Professional.
