Crowd management and event security specialist Showsec has appointed two new area managers, following the firm’s recent restructure of its Manchester and York offices.
Sam Hodkin has been confirmed as the new area manager in Leeds while Craig Bennett will take up a similar position in Sheffield.
Alan Wallace, Showsec’s regional manager in the North, said: “This is another significant step in the company’s development throughout the region and puts us in a very strong position now to achieve further growth in the future.
“We are looking to expand our footprint all over the United Kingdom and Yorkshire is clearly an area where there is enormous potential.
“A considerable amount of growth has already been achieved there and recent developments presented us with the chance to undertake this restructure in dividing such a large county into two distinct areas centred on Leeds and Sheffield.”
He added: “This is an exciting new challenge for Sam and Craig to take on, but they have been given an excellent springboard through the Management Development Programme, which has created a strong infrastructure for us to promote from within.
“The value of the company’s commitment to helping individuals fulfil potential is further underlined by operations executive Christopher Hudson, another recent graduate of MDP, moving across from Manchester to Leeds to join Sam’s team.”
Showsec also announced two key appointments earlier this month, with Roy Wise taking up the new position of head of product resources, and Michelle Sparsis joining as booking manager.
