Axis Security appoints new Managing Director

October 26, 2015

The Axis Group of Companies has promoted David Mundell to Managing Director of the Axis Security business, reporting directly to the Group Chief Executive Jonathan Levine.

David will be responsible for further strengthening the company’s position as a foremost provider of manned guarding and support services to a number of high profile regional, national and international clients. The company has grown from a standing start to turn over more than £60 million, and is part of a Group that has doubled in size over the last three years.

Having originally pursued a career in architecture with the PSA (Property Services Agency), David moved into sales in 1983 with Canon UK before joining the security industry in 1996. He was formerly Sales Director of First Security, and a central part of the Management Buyout of First in 1998, along with Jonathan Levine. With Jonathan he was also part of the Management Buy-In to Axis Security in 2007.

Jonathan says that David’s elevation to Managing Director is well deserved: “David is one of the most well-known and well-respected personalities within the manned guarding industry and his knowledge of the sector is second-to-none. He has played a key role in our previous success and has exactly the right experience we need to support our future ambitions.”

David’s promotion follows the recent appointment of Simon Giles as Group Finance Director.
