Fiona Strens, professor of practice on security & resilience at the University of Strathclyde, joins Corps Security as non-executive director.
As well as being professor of practice leading on security & resilience at the university, Strens spent 10 years leading CrowdVision, the video analytics company she co-founded. CrowdVision was designed to keep people safe and optimise traffic flow in crowded places like airports, events, and venues. Her career has spanned government (UK Ministry of Defence), and consultancy, with a focus on strategies and innovations for enhanced security, business efficiencies and productivity.
Strens has non-executive director and advisory experience, and mentors entrepreneurs and young people considering science, technology, engineering, and maths careers.
She will sit with the Corps board, which comprises: Malcolm Groat, chairman; Chris Nickols, non-executive director; Nick Pearch, non-executive director; Mike Bullock, chief executive officer; and Paul Craggs, chief financial officer.
Strens said: “I am both delighted and proud to be joining the world’s oldest security company as non-executive director. With the organisation receiving social enterprise certification last month this is an exciting time to be joining the team.”
Malcolm Groat, chairman, added: “I’m very pleased to welcome Fiona to the board. Her depth of security expertise is invaluable. This combined with her board and mentoring experience means she was the natural choice.”
