Ex-Head of Security at St Mary Axe launches new security business

Danny Moody

Tobruk Security Management Services is a new business that offers a fresh approach to security consultancy and contract management has been launched by Danny Moody, a senior security management professional with almost 20 years’ experience of protecting high-profile assets.

It aims to deliver a range of services from project-based consultancy and contract management through to fully retained and outsourced services for those whose budgets or requirements may not justify employing a full-time Head of Security.

The company will provide support with managing and running manned guarding or electronic security tenders, as well as audits of existing security and processes and penetration tests to determine the effectiveness of existing procedures. It will also conduct detailed desktop exercises for staff and management teams to test security, incident management, crisis management and business continuity plans.

Danny, the former Head of  Security and Risk Management at St Mary Axe (The Gherkin), named the business after the fortress city in Libya, made famous during the Second World War: “I wanted a name that would stand-out, become a talking point, and that reflected the concept of robust security and dogged determination,” he said. “It also has personal resonance as my Grandfather was stationed at Tobruk during the Second World War.”

Prior to starting Tobruk Security Management Services (Tobruk SMS), Danny enjoyed a varied career protecting iconic buildings for Blue Chip companies including roles as Security Contracts Manager at The London Eye, Security Manager at the London Stock Exchange and Head of Corporate Security at Aviva.

“Having gained experience working in both senior corporate security roles and directly for security providers has given me a valuable and unique perspective,” he concludes.
