Nick Southern

Managing Director

Nick is a former professional and semi-professional rugby player and still runs out regularly for his local side!!

When finishing professional rugby with Gloucester and moving to Moseley, Nick joined a security business in the North. Working his way up to lead the control room, and Area Director he was also heavily involved in the companies’ substantial operations in CCTV and Access Control.

When Nick is not playing rugby he is busy entertaining his two young daughters…..and will later on in life probably become the best Close Protection operative for them!!

Favourite Business Moment: Looking after the security team when the Duke of Gloucester opened up the mental health hospital in Northamptonshire and helping out the Mail box during the 2011 UK riots.

One of these was providing the Security for the Greater London Authority (GLA), London Mayor, Boris Johnson at both Trafalgar Square and Parliament Square. There was always events and political forums being held at City Hall, Westminster. One such forum is where London Assembly Members regularly question the Mayor and other key London officials, as part of their role to hold the Mayor and other bodies to account. Kennedy was fortunate enough to attend one of these meetings and found the experience, enlightening and rewarding.
