Wilson James has announced the acquisition of The Security Group (TSG) as part of a long-term strategy to provide clients with holistic solutions to their security and guarding needs.
The acquisition will allow Wilson James to meet the increasing demand from customers for information-led solutions required to address security challenges across a range of sectors. Customers will now benefit from a new Technology Services business unit at Wilson James.
Around 200 TSG employees will be welcomed into the larger Wilson James family. TSG’s existing guarding operations will be managed by Barry Dawson, Managing Director for Security at Wilson James, while technology will fall under James Bauer-Mein, the new Head of Technology. James will report to Gemma Quirke, recently appointed Chief Operating Officer at Wilson James.
Gemma Quirke noted: “The acquisition of TSG will allow Wilson James to provide greater value to its clients, through a combination of consultancy, technology and skilled people. We look forward to welcoming TSG clients and employees to Wilson James.”
