Marc Bannister: new role at Wilson James

Leading security solutions provider Wilson James has merged its Midlands, North and Scottish business regions into a single combined Northern Region and, following two successful years with Wilson James as a strategic solutions consultant, Marc Bannister will head the newly-constituted Northern Region.

Bannister steps into this new role at what is an exciting juncture in the company’s history, and will be responsible for bringing new services and people initiatives to the region.

Gemma Quirke, managing director for security, stated: “Marc brings a wealth of experience to his new role, as well as over two years within the Wilson James team. He has been instrumental in building partnerships including most recently with Solace Global, an intelligence and information provider, which is bolstering our newly redesigned Operational Support Centre. Marc has also been responsible for designing whole security solutions which were key factors in us winning major contracts across the UK.”

Of his new role, Bannister explained: “Delivering modern security solutions requires a comprehensive understanding of risk and threat in the modern age, and the development of personnel into trusted security experts able to meet that threat. From bringing our people initiatives to the region through to investing in the client experience by way of contract management, I look forward to continuing to provide strategic security journeys for Wilson James’ contracts and our clients.”

This strategic change supports Wilson James’ mission to deliver full-scale security solutions, built bespoke to client requirements and designed to meet the complex security needs of businesses and brands in the 21st Century. From the provision of security guarding to an in-house Risk Advisory Service and technological consultancy, Wilson James operates an “industry-leading approach”.
