Mark Rogers has joined Corps Security, provider of specialist security solutions, as its major account development director. With a remit to spearhead business development activities across a range of new sectors, it is hoped that Mark’s appointment into this newly created role will accelerate the company’s growth strategy and facilitate increased awareness of the diverse services it offers. With a long established and successful career within the facilities management (FM) sector, Mark joins Corps Security from Compass Group PLC. As a company director, he oversaw the management of the sales and marketing team, a role in which he achieved organic growth in key target markets including retail, leisure and hospitality. Mark is confident that he will build on his already impressive achievements in his new role. He commented:” Having worked extensively in the FM sector for over 20 years, I’ve long been aware of the important part that efficient and effective security provision plays in keeping customers’ people, property and assets safe. Security has never been more vital than it is today.”
