Safer Scotland adds three new senior security industry professionals

December 22, 2020


Scottish-based site security company Safer Scotland has appointed three security sector professionals as it continues to expand.

The Paisley-headquartered enterprise has secured the services of Peter Simpson as Head of Sales, Julian Free as Systems Specialist and Paul McKenna as Business Development Executive. All three have chosen to join Safer Scotland from competitors within the industry.

Peter Simpson

Peter Simpson was Sales Director Northern UK and RoI for Prestwick-based PID Systems before teaming up with the innovative start-up, which was founded by security specialist Ryan Clark only in 2016.

Peter remarked: “I have been very impressed with what Ryan has achieved in a relatively short time and it is clear that he has ambitious plans to take his technology-based business model to a much wider audience. I am very pleased to be a part of this journey.”


Julian Free

Julian Free – who has an impressive track record in Technical & Sales roles within the Electronic Security industry – was Head of National Sales for Systems at the Kingdom Group and also worked previously for PID Systems.

Julian commented: “The security sector is evolving rapidly, and change is being driven by professionals such as Ryan Clark, who has helped transform the traditional manned guarding sectoral model by embracing technological advances. I am very happy to be part of the team and help drive the ongoing change.”


Paul McKenna

Paul McKenna joins Safer Scotland from security business, Fraoch Scotland, where he was strategic business executive. He worked previously for both Arnold Clark and Capita.

Paul remarked: “Safer Scotland’s reputation in the UK security market is already strong and as business development executive my intention is to enhance it yet further.”


“Professionals of such a high calibre”

Ryan Clark commented on the appointments: “We are delighted to have been able to attract three professionals of such a high calibre and we know that they will make a huge contribution as Safer Scotland continues to grow and expand.”

Safer Scotland, which employs 14 staff in its senior management team, last year moved into new offices which also serve as a security demonstration centre, illustrating how radically site safety and surveillance has changed in recent years.

The company also provides security guards, key holding and mobile response, and other security services.
