Global risk management specialist Pinkerton has appointed a new UK director to head up its London-based operations centres in Russell Square and Uxbridge. Rory Lamrock, a law graduate with a Master’s degree in International Security, comes to the role with over a decade of experience in global security, intelligence and political risk consulting.

As a business, Pinkerton is a global provider of corporate risk management solutions combating non-insurable risk, including security consulting, investigations, executive protection, employment screening and protective intelligence.

The company’s London office boasts expertise in all business sectors and its team of security professionals specialises in quick due diligence, forensic accounting and fraud investigation, Intellectual Property protection, background screenings and corporate investigations (among many other services).

For his part, Rory Lamrock offers additional niche skills in intelligence, risk assessment and security consulting, honed in various positions including UN and EU criminal justice and maritime security projects in East Africa. More recently, Lamrock undertook a role as analyst and operations director focusing on high risk projects. He has also advised corporate and private clients on complex risk mitigation strategies.

Companies looking to manage security and political risks in emerging markets or challenging environments will benefit in particular from Lamrock’s skill set. He explained to Risk Xtra: “Pinkerton is without doubt a global leader in risk management and, with my qualifications and background, the UK director’s role was the ideal next career move for me. I thrive on using technology to solve problems, and the intelligence and other resources available at Pinkerton will certainly enable my team and myself to give UK organisations in all sectors the most informed advice on which they can base hugely important decisions about their security and ongoing risk management strategies.”
