After increasing 2015 turnover by 40%, security systems integration specialist ISD Tech has expanded its senior team to meet growing UK and global demand for its fully integrated fire detection and security solutions. The company has made a number of key hires to support this growth: Graeme Currie joins as Technical Account Engineer; Gary Sturge as Site Manager; and Sarah Stanton as Project Engineer.
Graeme Currie brings to his new role extensive experience in IP and networked fire and security systems acquired over almost 20 years in senior posts at Tyco/ADT Fire and Security. With strong design skills and in-depth knowledge of security systems, Graeme has delivered numerous security solutions from basic operations to highly complex integrated systems within strict budgets and timescales.
ISD Tech’s new site manager, Gary Sturge, spent 23 years in the Parachute Regiment, where his responsibilities included running military medical centres in extreme conditions ranging from the Arctic to desert, jungle and urban conflict zones. On leaving the Armed Forces, he transferred to the civilian sector to coordinate development of major security installations in the UK and Europe for multinational organisations.
Sarah Stanton joins from Gratte Brothers Security Management, where, as a security project engineer, she supervised CCTV, access control, visitor and traffic management and intruder alarm installations to a NACOSS Gold Standard. She has extensive experience in construction projects across a diverse range of sectors including professional services, information technology, local government, retail, leisure and education.
Commenting, Nicky Stokes, Managing Director of ISD Tech said: “As part of our strategy to continually reinvest in the business, we are delighted to welcome our new colleagues. They bring added experience and technical expertise that will further benefit our customers, whatever their requirements and wherever in the world their ambitions lie.”
