Venture Security has strengthened its senior team with the appointment of Michael McGarry as sales director.
Venture, based in Andover, provides specialist security services to corporate and residential customers based across Hampshire and central, southern England. The company is ranked within the top 2% of UK security providers.
As sales director, Michael will work closely with the board and senior management team to spearhead the company’s ambitious growth plans. He will be responsible for developing and managing relationships with new and existing clients, with a key focus being the expansion of the company’s popular mobile patrols and key holding services.
A veteran of the sales and hospitality industry, Michael joins Venture with more than 20 years’ business development experience. This includes five years as managing director at a regional catering and events firm, and being director of sales EMEA for hospitality technology company Cendyn.
Alongside his passion for business, Michael is also a keen martial artist. He is President of the World Council of Ju Jitsu Organisations and has been director of the Great British Ju Jitsu squad for the last eight years.
Commenting on his appointment, Michael said: “I have known Paul Howe and the team at Venture for many years - even calling on their services myself for sporting events I have been involved with in the past. I’m delighted to now be joining the company, as it enters the next stage in its development.
“What really appealed to me about the role is that Venture is a values-driven company. It has a reputation for professionalism and high quality, and I look forward to building on these strong foundations to help expand its broad client base.”
Paul Howe, Venture managing director, commented: “It’s great to have Michael on board. His strong track record, diverse experience and business acumen will be invaluable to us, as we focus on sustained growth in the coming years.
“Since founding Venture more than a decade ago, we’ve been proud to be different - always putting our customers first and providing a consistent, high quality service. We have robust systems and processes in place and ambitious plans for expansion, which Michael will play a key role in helping us achieve.”
Venture Security works with corporate and residential clients, ranging from high net worth individuals, to SME’s, blue chip companies, local authorities and event organisers. Customers have included Southampton Football Club, Hampshire County Council, Sparsholt College, Aster Group and Valley Leisure.
Choosing a security provider is an important decision for any business to make. When you’re placing the safety of your premises, equipment and staff in someone else’s hands, you need to know it is a firm you can trust. The last thing you want is to be won over by promises that are never delivered on.
Andover-based security specialist, Venture Security, is celebrating 10 years in business, as it continues to expand its reach across Hampshire and throughout central southern England.
For facilities management teams, security remains a top priority, as crime levels but also ‘terror attacks’ and other events, continue to highlight the importance of having a comprehensive security strategy in place.
