The Security Centre Ltd. has appointed Abrahem Ghazarian, who joined the company in August 2019, as the successor to long-standing CEO Stuart Bostock, who has handed over management responsibilities after more than 20 years with the company.
According to the company’s chairman, Ian Wight, Bostock was overseeing the Cayman business, while simultaneously launching and operating a security business venture in the US, stated a press release.
The handover of the day-to-day management responsibilities to Ghazarian will enable Bostock to focus on growing the US-based business. Wight thanked Bostock, who joined the company in 2000 as the operational manager, and then advanced to president and CEO two years later.
During his tenure, Bostock was instrumental in the growth of the company, The Security Centre said, by launching new business ventures such as Sat Trak Ltd and Security Centres International Ltd, and merging with partner companies including Safeguard Security Services Ltd and Apex Perimeter protection to diversify product services and branch out into the wider Caribbean.
“Our considerable operations in Cayman required an extensive search for a leader who could manage and maximise our current customer base, and also drive our continued growth and success, in Cayman and beyond,” Wight said. “Stuart remains a director and shareholder in The Security Centre, and we look forward to his continued contribution in that capacity.”
Ghazarian has more than 25 years of private security business experience globally. Prior to joining The Security Centre, he held several senior executive positions with geographical responsibilities covering South Asia, the Middle East, Africa and North America.
He began his career as a security guard and later joined a bank as a corporate security manager, before moving to the private-security sector and spearheading the global expansion and service line diversification programmes for several companies.
Wight said Ghazarian has been serving as general manager for six months. “During that time Abe implemented some very positive changes and set new standards that are aimed at providing exceptional quality and customer satisfaction.”
