Sarah Janes appointed new MD at The Security Company

Since Sarah joined us six years ago she has been instrumental in developing and maturing our security awareness offerings and services

Huntingdon, Cambs; July 1, 2011: The Security Company has appointed Sarah Janes as its new Managing Director, taking over from Jo Wise who will take a well-deserved step back from the day-to-day running of the business to become the Finance Director. Joining from BT's Security Awareness team in 2005, Sarah was the company's first Project Manager before being promoted to Operations Director, a post she has held since 2009.

"This business has always been a passion for me. I have seen it grow from a small family concern into the strong organisation it is today. My aspiration is to continue that transition and grow our company to be an even stronger leader in a fast developing market- I'm not talking about becoming the biggest in the world but delivering the very best that we can," states Sarah, a communications and Cranfield Business School graduate, and international-level triathlete.

Chairman and founder of The Security Company, Martin Smith MBE has no doubts about the potential of the company under its new leadership: "Since Sarah joined us six years ago she has been instrumental in developing and maturing our security awareness offerings and services. Her energy, enthusiasm, creativity and imagination have been fundamental to our success. In addition, her business acumen and market focus have proved increasingly valuable. Jo and I are delighted that she is now taking over as Managing Director to assume responsibility for the next stage of our growth - giving me more time to develop the Security Awareness Special Interest Group and both of us more time to spend with each other and our grandchildren."

The Security Company has established itself as one of the leading providers of measureable security awareness programmes and initiatives for blue chip companies and government bodies across Europe. Current clients include the Royal Mail, Unilever, Gala Coral and Vodafone.

In terms of positioning The Security Company, Janes is unequivocal: "My vision for our company is to face out to the traditional world of security, and invite them to see for themselves that not only do we have a dynamic approach, delivered with energy and enthusiasm, but this young organisation has experience, quality and a background of authority on security education that really is second to none."
