One could be forgiven for thinking that Gallowglass is simply a London based operation. Nothing could be further from the truth, as scale of our coverage in the UK is illustrated by the map above! 

Under the leadership of the dynamic and ever resourceful Jaco Nieuwoudt, (Partner for Regional Development) Gallowglass now boasts offices in both Birmingham and Greater Manchester. From these bases we have been able to service client requirements in Scotland (Dundee, Glasgow and Edinburgh), The North of England (Liverpool, Manchester , Newcastle, Leeds and Hull), The Midlands (Birmingham, Leicester and Northampton) Wales and the West Country. The last twelve months has seen an immense variety of security work undertaken by Jaco and his team. This has ranged from outdoor live concerts and festivals, where we were instructed by World Wide Events at the Whitehaven Festival, where McFly was the headline act and with over 250,000 people attending; through to the perennial charm of the IMG produced Tatton Park Summer Picnic Concerts, as well as at the Newark Festival on behalf of the Liz Hobbs Group.

What has featured prominently under Jaco’s remit have been product promotions roadshows; where we were delighted to assist ID Live Brand Experience in providing security for their Pepsi Max promotion at Liverpool , Leeds and various London locations. Currently we are providing security for Tribe Marketing in the Blinkbox promotion in conjunction with ITV’s Big Reunion, and have so far covered Leeds, Manchester, Leicester, Northampton and with London still to come.

When asked what he attributes this success to, Jaco says “ There is no magic bullet, and I attribute our expansion outside London to a number of things. I joined Gallowglass in 2003 and have worked at all levels of the organisation. I have been imbued with the unique Gallowglass ethos, which I regard as timeless, and it is this ethos and approach that has underpinned our success to date, and I believe will continue to drive us forward. In particular these values and qualities include; being available at all times, reacting and mobilising rapidly, service delivery by able, proactive guards who are determined to complete their assignments to the highest standards of excellence in a positive, friendly and cheerful manner”.
