Wilson James has announced the acquisition of The Security Group (TSG) as part of our long-term strategy to provide clients with holistic solutions to their security and guarding needs.
The acquisition of TSG will allow us to meet increasing demand from customers for the information-led solutions required to address security challenges across a range of sectors. Clients will now benefit from advanced security technology through a new Technology Services business unit at Wilson James.
TSG’s client base is primarily centred in the South East of England, includes both public and private sector organisations, and fits well with Wilson James’ existing customers. Around 200 TSG employees are joining us through the acquisition and I would like you to join me in welcoming them into the 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. He will report to me, as Chief Operating Officer.
As we work to integrate TSG into the Wilson James organisation, I would ask everyone to maintain the usual, high levels of service that our customers have come to value so highly, and which have served to set Wilson James apart.
Many thanks for your continuing support and hard work. It is an exciting time for our entire team.
Chief Operating Officer
