Axis Security has appointed Alan Nathan to the newly-created national position of business continuity and risk manager. Nathan has more than ten years of commercial security experience, primarily focusing on national and international client account management, and most recently completed a contract in Kazakhstan designing and managing security operations within the oil and gas industry.

“Axis Security is dedicated to providing clients with support and solutions for their specific operational needs,” explained Nathan. “I’ve already begun to engage with both existing and potential clients in order to develop our risk management and business continuity credentials.”

Reporting to Axis Security’s operations director John Fitzpatrick, Nathan’s immediate task is to review and develop Axis Security’s emergency notification and incident management capability for both the company’s staff safety assurance and clients’ own emergency notification and management procedures.

David Mundell, managing director of Axis Security, explained to Risk UK: “Alan joins Axis Security in this new and important role with a wealth of experience in the industry, having designed and managed numerous large-scale security operations over the years. His appointment will further enhance the company’s support capability to its clients. We will continue to develop integrated solutions with our clients such that they’re better prepared to withstand threats and disruptions to business operations.”
