The Axis Group of Companies has promoted David Mundell to managing director of the Axis Security business, reporting directly to Group CEO Jonathan Levine.
Mundell will be responsible for further strengthening the company’s position as a foremost provider of security guarding and support services to a number of high profile regional, national and international clients.
The company has grown from a standing start to turn over more than £60 million, and is part of a Group that has doubled in size over the last three years.
Having originally pursued a career in architecture with the Property Services Agency, Mundell moved into sales in 1983 with Canon UK before joining the security industry in 1996.
He was formerly sales director at First Security, and a central part of the management buy-out of First in 1998, along with Jonathan Levine. Alongside Levine, Mundell was also part of the management buy-in to Axis Security in 2007.
Levine believes Mundell’s elevation to managing director is well deserved.
“David is one of the most well-known and well-respected personalities within the security guarding sector,” Levine told Risk UK. “His knowledge of the sector is second-to-none. He has played a key role in our previous success and has exactly the right experience we need to support our future ambitions.”
Mundell’s promotion follows the recent appointment of Simon Giles to the post of Group finance director.
