Cityguard General Manager Caroline Halton has won a seat on the New Zealand Security Association Board, allowing her to bring her vision to the national level and be a voice for the sector’s smaller security organisations at board level.
Ms Halton’s appointment will allow her to actively influence other members to share her vision on issues as diverse as careers versus jobs; the feasibility and desirability of the Living Wage; more meaningful education for security personnel; and driving change in the industry.
At yesterday’s Annual General Meeting of the New Zealand Security Association, Ms Halton was one of two successful candidates seeking board appointment, with David Proud also retaining his seat.
The industry body’s selection process was described as “very open, fair and transparent”. Each of the three nominees was invited to address the meeting and an immediate vote determined those to be appointed.
Ms Halton has 16 years’ experience in the industry in a variety of roles ranging from recruitment and HR through to Operations Management and Business Development. In her presentation to the meeting she outlined her personal ambitions for the industry and in particular focused on the security community’s need to elevate its perception and to focus on the training and development of the front line security officers.
