The Spearfish management team are a dynamic and experienced group, who between them have a wide range of skills and experience. Our chairman is Lord West, the former Minister for Security and Counter-Terrorism. Dan Hooton runs the business as Managing Director, assisted by Grant White, Operations Director and Quentin Brook, Commercial Director. John Smith completes the team as our second Non-Executive Director, bringing with him a wealth of corporate security experience.
We report directly to clients’ management, in effect acting as the de-facto security expert, which is perfect for companies that do not have their own in-house security team. This provides the benefits of a partner that knows and understands your company, and can make informed decisions to help you keep your people safe and get the job done.
We also support existing in-house security teams looking to outsource an element of their security– an excellent solution for larger corporations. Having a team of ex-corporate security advisors on hand who know and understand the challenges a Corporate Security Director will face is an extremely valuable resource.
A British-owned business, Spearfish have operated in many countries around the world in both permissive and hostile environments. Recent areas of operation include the Indian Ocean, Northern Nigeria, Pakistan, Indonesia and Somalia..
Spearfish protect businesses by increasing their resilience to adverse events. We help senior management teams and boards to develop a proactive approach to physical security, designing and implementing robust risk frameworks. We train and support individuals and teams both prior to and during travel to high-risk environments. We respond to and manage crises with our clients, enabling recovery in the most effective means possible. In short, we enable businesses to operate in complex and challenging security environments. We use security to add value.
Spearfish protect vessels and crews to an exceptionally high standard using our extensive knowledge and experience. We work with owners, management companies, captains and crews to protect their vessels from a wide range of risks. Spearfish provide a high-calibre service, combining discretion with effective security; our teams have a deep understanding of how to deliver security onboard. Extensive preparation and training with our consultants produces an exceptional level of protection for those onboard, led by the experience of the Spearfish management.
Spearfish provide discreet security services for individuals on a case-by-case basis to solve their unique security issues. We work with individuals who have unique security concerns, and who wish to engage with a discreet and competent partner. We provide bespoke services to counter threats orientated towards family, leisure and residential scenarios. We have experience of working with principals and their families, and understand the manner in which to deliver these services, which normally fall outside the typical boundaries offered by employers or corporate security teams.
Spearfish are based in Winchester, Hampshire, UK, in the heart of the ancient capital of England. From here, we manage our teams globally and carry out training and project work with clients on a regular basis.
We also have a secure and private training area on the outskirts of the city, which is used as a shooting range, team training area and location for specialist courses such as Hostile Environment Awareness Training..
