After 30 years at Kings Security Systems, including 3 since PrimeKings became the majority shareholder, Anthony King has decided that it is time to leave the business. While this will be a loss, we are delighted to announce that Bob Forsyth has joined Kings as the new Chief Executive. Bob has extensive Business Services experience with Mitie where he transformed the security division from a manpower led service to a wide ranging technology business. Over an 8 year career as MD he took revenues to over £300m, becoming the second largest security company in the UK with a strategy of differentiation and technology advancement through a focus on risk, and integrated service delivery to a wide range of sectors.
Geoff Zeidler, Chairman of Kings, said “The Board would like to pay tribute to Anthony for all he has achieved in building the business and wish him well for the future. Bob has a broad market knowledge and fantastic track record of delivering profitable growth. The Board look forward to working with him and the Executive team to take Kings forward to becoming the most respected, innovative and successful company in the industry.”
Bob Forsyth said “Kings has a tremendous market position and a reputation for passionate people who deliver great service to loyal customers. This, together with the financial support of PrimeKings, creates a tremendous opportunity and I am really excited to join the team to ensure that Kings achieves its full potential.”
Kings Security is a leading provider of security and fire services to homes and businesses across the UK. Its majority shareholder is PrimeKings, which is backed by the Kirsh Group.
