Mitie’s Total Security Management (TSM) business division has launched City Class, a tailored security service for City-based clients. The new offer was introduced at The Kurtzman Club, one of the company’s thought leadership gatherings which took place at the Institute of Directors in central London.
Launching initially in London, the risk-led, premium City Class service converges physical and IT security and has been specifically designed to enable Mitie to focus on securing its customers’ reputations, people, Intellectual Property and assets. It’s being delivered by an experienced team whose constituent members understand the challenges of the capital and other major cities.
Recognising that organisations in high-profile cities increasingly require heightened and more sophisticated security measures, Mitie TSM has introduced the City Class offer to deliver intelligence and threat awareness combined with highly-skilled people and market-leading technology.
The main differentiator of the service will be the front line security personnel. Mitie TSM has designed and implemented a bespoke academy to ensure that its security professionals are highly trained and situationally aware, upskilled to handle the more challenging and diverse environments they protect and deliver an elite level of service that’s fitting for the most prestigious buildings, many of them in iconic locations.
Evolving security needs
Jason Towse, managing director of Mitie’s security management business, said: “The launch of City Class is a really exciting development in addressing the evolving security needs of our customers in what’s now an ever-developing threat landscape. While City Class isn’t exclusive to the London market and will be applied across other major cities and our national client base in due course, London is the natural region for us to launch the offer.”
Towse concluded: “City Class takes our risk-based approach to security one step further and is the creation of what we believe will be the sector-leading offer for corporate and strategic clients.”
Launched by Mitie’s security business back in February, The Kurtzman Club brings together leaders and influencers from the security business sector to look at the future of security and challenge the status quo, while also helping to steer and future-proof the sector.
