We would like to extend a very warm welcome to our latest member of staff, Piers Routledge, who we are pleased to announce, has accepted an appointment with us for the newly created role of Operations Support Manager.

Piers will be responsible for ensuring that the highest standards of quality assurance and regulatory compliance are maintained and applied, at operational level. Pier’s remit extends also to the planning and execution of “Special Projects” as and when they arise.

The need for this role has been driven by the tremendous growth that Gallowglass security has enjoyed in the last 18 months.

Piers has been known to us for many years now, having worked for us as a security guard in 2003, whilst enjoying a gap year, before returning to New Zealand to study Commercial Law, Human Resources & Industrial Relations Management at his alma mater ,Victoria University of Wellington.

Following graduation he was commissioned into the Royal New Zealand Navy as a Warfare Officer. In his time with the RNZN he enjoyed an adventurous and diverse career in the Pacific and Antarctic waters.

This ranged from the removal of unexploded ordnance in Papua New Guinea; delivering humanitarian relief in the Solomon Islands through to supporting Antarctic marine resources through active patrols.

In addition he undertook and passed the demanding P Company, enabling him to serve with the 4th Battalion of the Parachute Regiment in the Territorial Army.

Were these activities not exhausting enough, he remains an active and fine rugby player, a tenacious wing forward in the Richie McCaw mould. Having represented the New Zealand Navy, he now turns out for the Honorable Artillery Company RFC.

Piers  says of his appointment “It is tremendous to return to Gallowglass. Having been with the firm in its infancy, I have seen immense progress and positive change in the interim. I am determined to play my part in ensuring that we enhance the reputation of Gallowglass as a byword for excellence in security amongst our clients.”
