Synectics Security has appointed a project management and planning specialists to join its senior team as Operations Director. With over 20 years’ experience in UK operational and security-focused project delivery, spanning both service provider and client-side roles, Colin Butlin is the first external appointment announced as part of the new-look company.
Colin will be working closely with Synectics Security’s Managing Director, Iain Stringer, and Commercial Director Mark Pennington.
The company officially launched earlier this year, following the merger of Synectics Mobile Systems (SMS) and Quadrant Security Group. Colin joins from Kier where, among other responsibilities, he led a multi-million-pound programme of security upgrade works for Critical National Infrastructure sites across the UK.
With experience spanning industry, utilities, defence and commercial markets, the 46-year-old operations expert feels he has a lot to offer Synectics Security at such an exciting time for the business.
Colin said: “I’m privileged to have worked both sides of the fence in terms of managing major security projects. I know, first-hand, what a customer expects, but also how service delivery should be structured, monitored, and managed to ensure those expectations are met in the most efficient and effective way possible. At Synectics Security I have the amazing opportunity to use this experience to ensure new levels of customer satisfaction but also to help shape and steer the business.”
