Chris Gillam joins Intrepid Security

by Brian Sims

Intrepid Security has announced the appointment of Chris Gillam as Operations Manager, bringing a wealth of experience to his new role. Chris has had a successful career within the Royal Navy, having joined at the age of sixteen as an aircraft weapons and electrical engineer, maintaining Sea Harrier aircraft. In 2001, Chris transferred to the Royal Navy Police (RNP) where he finished his career. During his employment within the RNP he conducted several tours during the Gulf conflict, during which he was responsible for the management and protection of a team of 20+ engineers moving throughout the country establishing a communications network for the UK military. In 2007 he took a foreign post and moved to Bahrain for 18 months, in the role of Operations Manager for the United Kingdom Component Commander (UKMCC), which primarily involved the management and safe transit of UK personnel passing through the area on counter piracy operations, alongside providing force protection for UK personnel and assets stationed within the region. During the final years of his military career, Chris was stationed at the Royal Navy Police Headquarters in Portsmouth in the role of Headquarters Operations Manager, responsible for the management of all military policing issues and personnel for the Eastern region. Chris says:” I am enjoying the transition from military life into the challenges of the corporate security industry, operating in a customer focused environment. I feel that I can re-emphasise our service and maintenance efforts and draw from my previous experience to streamline our operations as we move forward, enabling us to maintain a seamless support structure as the company continues to grow and evolve into the future.”
