Founder and CEO
To keep Opem moving forward through listening to what our clients want and through the innovation of our offering.
25 years in the security industry, with a 5-year gap working within the flexible office industry. This experience lighted a fire under me and I have been obsessed with providing first-class service to this industry ever since.
A number of reasons really; fundamentally I want to make a difference and this is my way of doing that. On a day to day basis, what gets me out of bed is working with my team who are all amazing and do great work; and of course our clients. We are lucky to work with really engaging people who see the value in what we do, and there is no better feeling for me.
Hmmm……is a Jedi a superhero? Yes, I want to be a Jedi, so I can use the Jedi mind trick. So when an intruder breaks into a client’s building, I will feel a disturbance in the force. Then I can make the intruder shout at the top of their lungs, “Help me, I am an intruder and want to hug a policeman”, by using the Jedi mind trick!
Would have to be Robert DeNiro; Bob to his friends. Bob is my fav actor, and has pitched a bio to me several times. Maybe one day…..maybe ?

It’s great working at Opem as everyone gets involved in all aspects of running the company.
Batman – I love gadgets…..
Daniel Craig – Why not? or Matthew Brodrick – Acting hero of the ’80s.
Chief Operating Officer
OUR CLIENTS. The main point of contact for all our clients. Looking after all clients and relationship building, taking care of all client security needs (proposals, suggestions etc). Planning in and co-ordinating all small works.
Hotels (Hospitality) and serviced offices.
I love working for Opem because, we are one big family, who support one another and work together to put our clients first, offering the best and most cost-effective solutions to ensure their security is the priority. I get to meet some really interesting and exciting people and all our clients are amazing.
I would be Black Widow ?. She is extremely dedicated to what she does, passionate about her role within the ‘Superhero World’. She gets the job done, is cool and calm, treats people with respect and is respected BUT knows how to stand up for herself and is deadly if you hurt her or the ones she cares about.
Jennifer Anniston – she’s beautiful, funny, sassy, independent and extremely successful.
Sales and Marketing Manager
To expand Opem’s digital reach and drive new revenue streams to facilitate the company’s growth.
7 years experience, specialising in sales and marketing, predominantly in property and construction, for industry leaders such as The Office Group and WorkSpace.
Working with an amazing team who share a collective drive, passion and ambition to deliver unparalleled client support and services. Opem’s security solutions are second to none and I’ve enjoyed meeting their fantastic clients and I’m looking forward to making my mark.
It’s between two but I think I would have to go with the blue shape shifting beauty Mystique. She’s been a lifelong favourite of mine, due to her tenacity, dry wit, and ability to get the job done. She’s a force to be reckoned with and always has a trick up her sleeve.
Jennifer Lawrence, because she’s an absolute legend. Her endearing clumsiness, lest we forget her two time Oscar fall, zero filer, which often leads to comedy gold, and her love for pranks and all-round silliness make her an ideal candidate for the role. Also, she’s Katniss!
Ranger Team Manager
Responsible for the day to day operations of the entire Rangers team and to ensure that each member is carrying out their duties correctly and efficiently.
I have worked in the security industry for 25 years, predominately in supervisory and managerial roles for reputable clients such as the Warner brothers (Harry Potter studio tour), Getty Images, and the BBC.
I love working for Opem, because of the internal staff with which includes the control room operators as they are really easy to interact with when it comes to problem-solving as well as other members of management who are really professional and are a great support system.
Superman – because he always comes to the rescue of others and sorts things out in the nick of time (kind of what I do on a day to day basis).
Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson – Because he is a very multi-talented and multi-faceted actor who I can confidently say would play my character to perfection. My character would involve me conquering bullies (as a child), hanging with unsavoury characters (as a teen), going through reformation (as a young adult), dealing with troublemakers at club venues (as a doorman), getting into more pleasant professions and eventually prospering up until this day.
I have been working with Opem from day one
Chief Technical Officer
Making sure all the engineering and technical aspects work correctly.
I love working with Opem because of the people, we always form a plan to overcome challenges. Our clients are great and every day throws different opportunities my way.
Mr Fantastic (Fabulous Four), because he possesses a mastery of mechanical, aerospace and electrical engineering.
Patrick Stewart – who wouldn’t want Jean-Luc Picard playing them.
Operations & Control Room Manager
Overseeing the security maintenance of our client’s buildings, managing the service desk, service engineers and our control room, which is responsible for the remote monitoring of our buildings.
Retail Operations & Facility manager
I enjoy the fast-paced environment and working with passionate people who share the collective goal of always continuing to improve our security offering, without compromising on the customer experience and keeping our client’s needs at the core of everything we do.
The Incredible Hulk, mostly because I am an angry Scotsman, but also have a softer side that comes out occasionally.
Tom hardy, woman seem to love him…..
