Securecom today announced a series of internal changes to its leadership team, which are effective from 1st April 2023.

Greg Mikkelsen (former Sales and Marketing Director) is promoted to Managing Director. Former Managing Director Chris New takes up the position of Board Chair.

At the same time, Dave Shennan moves from his role as Director of Cyber Security to replace Greg as Sales and Marketing Director, with Dave being replaced by Jason Wild, who is promoted and joins the senior leadership team as Head of Cyber Security.

Chris New comments:

“When Greg and I decided to take a stake in Securecom in 2016, I was appointed to the role of Managing Director and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the role, more than tripling the size of the business and signing off on what will be another record year for us in 2023. The time is right for Securecom to strengthen our board governance. As part of our succession plan, I’m delighted that Greg has agreed to take on the running of the business on a day-to-day basis. Greg has a long track record of success, is hugely respected both within the industry and in Securecom. The board has every confidence that Greg will excel in his role and will continue to support our customers and our people. I’m looking forward to being Board Chair and stepping away from operational detail, which will give me the time to focus on strategy.”

Greg Mikkelsen comments:

“Chris has been an instrumental part of our success and will remain a key part of Securecom in his Board Chair role and will maintain his shareholding. I’m excited about becoming Managing Director and continuing to provide our customers with the exceptional level of service that is synonymous with the Securecom brand. We continue to invest and grow in Cyber Security, Networking and Cloud Services and with Dave Shennan leading our sales and marketing activities, I am very confident that our growth will continue. Having Jason Wild with his significant Cyber Security experience joining the Senior Leadership Team reflects the importance of this element of our business, and I am proud to be leading our talented and passionate team into the next phase of our growth.”
