Jose Saez has been appointed as Portico Safe’s new project manager to spearhead the company’s new security service.
Saez joined the specialist provider of guest services this summer to lead Portico Safe, Portico’s security offering designed to complement existing front-of-house services or become the singular point of welcome. Portico Safe facilitates guest arrival and departure journeys.
He will oversee all security contracts, being responsible for upskilling Portico’s FoH colleagues so they have the right tools and knowledge to operate in the security industry.
His career in hospitality and FM has spanned more than 10 years with over six years of experience in operations roles. Before joining Portico Safe, he was the account manager for CIS Security’s front-of-house division, overseeing the firm’s contracts. He managed a team of 70 employees, including SIA licensed receptionists, across a wide portfolio of London contracts, ranging from public sector to corporate clients. He has also held account and project management positions with Mitie, and Rapport, a boutique provider of guest services.
Saez said: “Portico’s front-of-house teams naturally have heightened awareness of people, impeccable attention to detail and dedication for delivering service excellence so security awareness skills will be easy to teach and develop with such a fantastic workforce.”
Paul Jackson, managing director of Portico, added: “As organisations return to the workplace, Portico Safe will be fundamental in safeguarding people. Jose’s wealth of security experience and guest services expertise made him the natural choice for this role. .”
Portico Safe will deliver a blend of security protocol and guest service as one. With highly trained, SIA Licensed ‘Portico Security Operatives’ (PSO), the new offering will provide an end-to-end experience, a security service that can tackle security threats whilst creating an inviting and engaging workplace.
