SWBC members, Securious, are delighted to announce the promotion of two members of their team to senior leadership positions to facilitate further growth after a record year for the business.

Darren Grey, previously Operations Manager, will now be taking on the role of Operations Director and joining the Securious board. Nigel Peirce will be stepping up from Senior Cyber Security Consultant to take on the role of Chief Technical Officer.

This is an exciting move for Securious as Darren and Nigel will own the strategy and delivery in their respective areas to drive the business forward and build upon Securious’ strongest year yet, in which it launched a number of new products designed to meaningfully improve clients’ cyber security.

Darren will be optimising the business’ operations to ensure the team continues over-delivering for clients, and as a board director, he will be responsible for the overall delivery of our client services.

Nigel will be leading the technical team and is already recruiting for a new role of Junior Cyber Security Consultant. He will be heavily involved in all new product development, owning the technical elements and delivering products and services that fully meet the needs of our clients.

The Securious team are very excited about these two promotions and what they mean for the business. Pete Woodward, CEO, comments:

“I’m absolutely delighted for Darren and Nigel. Both have shown continued commitment to Securious and have really excelled in their roles, taking ownership of their areas and putting our clients at the centre of all they do.

“Darren has been with Securious for five years and has always treated the business as if it were his own with absolute commitment to us and our clients. He will be a credit to us as a Director so I am very excited we have made this announcement. I can’t wait to see Darren grow further into the role.

“Nigel is the perfect person to be our CTO following my move to CEO. I’ll now be focusing on the overall direction of the business and fully trust Nigel to oversee the technical outputs. This will include overseeing the technical delivery of our existing products and services, along with working closely with myself and the team as we look to the future and create new products and packages that fit the needs of our clients.”

Darren Grey, Operations Director, comments:

“I am pleased and privileged to be able to take full ownership of the operations department, along with working closely with the other directors to ensure our strategy for the coming years is sound, issues are addressed quickly and we have optimised our processes for maximum efficiency.

“Securious as a business has really thrived over the last few years, even despite a global pandemic. The recent restructuring of our team is certain to position us for further growth and I’m so excited to step into my new role and help drive the business forward.”

Nigel Peirce, CTO, comments:

“I’m very excited to take on the role of CTO. Securious is a dynamic, forward-thinking business so I know my new role will be exciting and rewarding. We’re already working on some big new projects that I can’t wait to talk about to our clients and the wider world.

“The technical development and delivery of our services is a huge part of our growth plans over the next few years, so I’m excited to be so involved in that process. Keep your eyes peeled for further announcements over coming weeks…”
